Will Mara Jade Be In Episode IX?

Website That Hashtag Show reports that the casting process for Episode IX is underway. And apparently, JJ Abrams and casting director Nina Gold are looking for the following:

a female lead, 40-50 years old, to play the role of “MARA.”

It has to be said that it’s common practice to use code names instead of the real character names in casting, so it doesn’t necessarily mean that Mara Jade will be in Episode IX. Episode IX is still scheduled to begin filming in July, so we should know more very soon. Who could this 40-50 year old woman be? Someone who takes over from Leia? Rey’s mother? Holdo’s sister? Or Mara Jade after all? Speculate away!

In a discussion with CinemaBlend, Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow talked about the process of creating the next chapter in the Star Wars saga without Carrie Fisher. Although Trevorrow’s comments weren’t particularly revealing, he did admit that his options are limited because there are only certain things they are willing to do. Lucasfilm already ruled out using a CGI recreation to continue Leia’s story without Carrie Fisher, which is a wise choice. How the creative team will honor Carrie Fisher and handle Leia’s story is what I am the most anxious about heading into The Last Jedi and Episode IX. What do you think? Click through to read the full quote from Trevorrow.
