"We would talk about the scenes, and we got very tight during the shooting of that. So it was a beautiful thing to see, and it gets carried over into the new film as well," Isaac said.

He had previously said the film deals with Fisher's death in a "really beautiful way". 

"We desperately loved Carrie Fisher. Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”, " director and writer JJ Abrams had stated, as reported earlier.

Star Wars: Episode IX, which will once again feature Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong'o and Domhnall Gleeson, is set to be released in December.
