I don't think it will work, anyway.  Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm and the rest have said that they will not be recasting the role or using a CGI Leia or anything like that. Episode 8 was the last we saw of the character.

Let them petition all they want.  It's probably the same ones who petitioned to remove Last Jedi from canon.

Probably, lol. I think it'd be a terrible disservice to fans to recast, bit to mention how difficult it would surely be to step into her shoes.

Yeah, they'll just have to get used to having a Star Wars film without the 'Big Three.' (Excluding a Force Luke in 9). It was bound to happen anyway, just sooner than we thought.

      Episode IX is currently set for release on 20 December 2019.
      Principal photography is due to begin in July 2018. The working title is “Black Diamond”. IMAX cameras will be used to film some sequences.
      The film's soundtrack will once again be scored by Star Wars veteran John Williams. Williams has said that this will likely be his final Star Wars movie.
      In February 2018, Paul Inglis joined as the Lead Supervising Art Director. He had previously worked on Blade Runner 2049, Prometheus, and Skyfall.

      Director
      JJ Abrams is returning to direct Episode IX, with Kathleen Kennedy producing. It was previously slated to be directed by Colin Trevorrow, who worked closely with The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson to ensure continuity between their respective movies. Trevorrow left the project in September 2017 due to “creative differences”. Disney had to pay off Paramount Pictures to secure Abrams, as he had breached contract with them for The Force Awakens.
       
      Carrie Fisher
      Carrie Fisher was due to have a major role in Episode IX as General Leia Organa. When she tragically passed away in December 2016 the story team “pretty much started over”, according to Kathleen Kennedy.
      Lucasfilm was quick to quash rumors that Leia would be digitally recreated, similar to Tarkin’s appearance in Rogue One. Fisher's brother and daughter have granted rights for Lucasfilm to use recent footage of her, but Kennedy has since stated that Fisher will not be in Episode IX.
      In July 2018 it was announced that with the blessing of Fisher's family unused footage from The Force Awakens will be used to allow the inclusion of Leia.

    • Fan starts petition for George Lucas to return

      A Star Wars fan has created an online petition to bring George Lucas back to the Star Wars movies as the director of Episode IX. Lucas, who created Star Wars has had no involvement with the franchise, including The Force Awakens, since selling LucasFilm to The Walt Disney Company in 2012.
      The perition calls for Lucas to return as he is "the father of the franchise" and states that this would be a perfect way to end the sequel trilogy, and so far people seem to agree, with the petition gaining almost the 5,000 signatures requested within a week of publishing.
      George Lucas recently criticised The Force Awakens, saying that Disney had made a "retro" movie that he doesn't like, but later clarified that he still believe Star Wars is in safe hands with Disney who has previously worked with overthe past 40 years. In contrast to Lucas's views, critics have widley praised the latest instalment of the saga which has gone on to smash numerous box office records worldwide.
      Currently Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is signed on as director for Episode IX, which is scheduled for release in 2019.
    • Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow signs on for Episode IX

      Lucasfilm has announced that Colin Trevorrow has been hired as the director for Star Wars Episode IX, due in 2019.
      Star Wars Episode IX will be the third instalment and conclusion of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following on from upcoming The Force Awakens, out this December.
      Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, has described Colin Trevorrow, 38, as "an incredible talent" and said she has been looking forward to working with him since 2012's Safety Not Guaranteed. "The power of that film paired with the enormous success of Jurassic World speaks volumes about his abilities both as a storyteller and skilled film-maker", she said.
      Jurassic World, itself the foundation for a new trilogy in the Jurassic Park franchise, has taken over $1.5 billion at the box office worldwide, and Trevorrow has indicated that helming the ninth episode of the Star Wars saga is not just another job, saying that the role "is a seat at a campfire, surrounded by an extraordinary group of storytellers, film-makers, artists and craftspeople".
      Trevorrow's Star Wars Episode IX will release in 2019 and follow in the footsteps of JJ Abrams' The Force Awakens, and Rian Johnson's episode VIII in 2017.
      Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on 18 December 2015.
