The question is though, how can footage from Episode 7 serve the story of Episode 9?

Pure speculation, but the most significant scene I can think of involving Leia from TFA that we never saw involves Maz delivering the lightsaber to her. We see a glimpse of this in the Celebration Teaser. I think it's unlikely actual scenes will be grafted into IX though, considering the narrative challenges, but I think this is probably somewhere they're drawing from. I imagine also that they may simply use footage but generate new dialogue, either through recorded sound of her left unused or dubbing.

I expected an off screen death and a funeral and I didn't want that. I didn't want a three movie wake for my OT heroes. I'm glad it's this way, even if it's not perfect. I'm glad because they won't bring her back to kill her off. She's going to survive the movie, and I can't think of anything better that Leia lives, and goes on fighting.

Weren't there also scenes of her trying to track down Poe and sending a delegation to the Republic looking for more help? I seem to remember that from the novelization. Not that I can begin to figure out how to use those moments post-TLJ, either...

I saw images from a scene that Leia was supposed to have with Kor Sella in TFA.  That actually preceded the reveal of Leia as she was getting off the Resistance Transport on Takodana.  But evidently JJ Abrams wanted the reveal of Leia to coincide with her reunion with Han Solo.  I think it may have actually been in the deleted scened, but it had Leia sending Kor off to Hosnian Prime to get assistance from the Republic in opposition to the First Order.  But of course Kor Sella was waiting in terror as the Starkiller fired Hosnian Prime in TFA, destroying the Republic Capitol.

Yep, the scene with Kor is on the DVD. Don't think this is where they source from, but really who knows. It could be a simple scene or exchange, and she's only present for a brief moment.

Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.

I see that SW.com updated the original story to include Keri Russell officially now - "Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, and Keri Russell"

As a fan of The Americans TV show, I'm pretty excited to see her in this movie.  Hopefully she gets to do more than Holdo did.  :)

As much as I'd like to see Gran Admiral Thrawn portrayed in a movie....I'd rather not see him in Episode IX....he's be over 100 years old.  Do Chiss even live that long?

Well the last time we saw him he was taken away by space whales. Maybe he has been in a time warp with Bridger?

I hear through motion capture technology he is playing the bottom half of Darth Maul that didn't actually die.

It’s like the “Stan” method of rumor reporting for toys!

Btw if the bottom half of Maul just runs around to the Benny Hill theme in 9 I’m happy with that.

I listened to MSW's most recent podcast and they were discussing the cut footage of Leia in TFA.  Evidently there was a fair amount of footage shot of Leia where Maz returned the lightsaber to Leia.  We saw that in the trailer, and it was also intended to be in the movie.  Maz returns the lightsaber to Leia, and Leia came to the conclusion that maybe Finn is the person who should take the lightsaber and passed it along to him.  However, when Harrison Ford got injured on set there was some significant retooling of the second act, including that scene.  The MSW guys also mentioned that there might be some unused footage from TLJ that could get incorporated, too.

Following the main cast announcement there have been some additional bits of casting news:


THR:  Dominic Monaghan Joins 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

VARIETY:  ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Casts Matt Smith in Key Role


Bringing in Monaghan reunited JJ Abrams with one of the cast of 'Lost'.  And Matt Smith is certainly no stranger to genre material having been the lead in Dr. Who.
