Home Alone in a Toy Store

Bob,

First, I hope you don’t mind if I call you Bob. “Mr. Iger” seems too formal, even for the CEO of the Walt Disney Company.

She had already completed filming on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but reports indicated that her character General Leia was meant to have an even bigger role in Star Wars: Episode IX. One of the options being discussed in order to fix this issue was making changes to General Leia’s role in The Last Jedi to reduce the problem of her not being in Episode IX. But that apparently won’t be necessary.

Disney CEO Bob Iger appeared today for a chat at the USC Marshall School of Business, and when conversation turned to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he brought up the passing of Carrie Fisher and how it was being handled behind the scenes.  Read More »
