Carrie Fisher’s last movie set for release 7 years after death

“Wonderwell”, Carrie Fisher’s final movie, which she completed filming just weeks before her tragic death, is due to be released next week with a dedication to the late actress

It has been seven years since Fisher’s death.


The iconic actress died from a sudden heart attack at the age of 60.

Deadline reports that Vertical has acquired the rights to distribute the late actress’ final film on June 23 and it will include a dedication to the late actress.

The film’s director Vlad Marsavin told the media outlet that the project has taken seven years to complete.

He explained that production was complicated by the Covid-19 pandemic and Carrie’s unexpected death.

He said that this is the perfect time to share Fisher’s magical on-screen moments as Hazel.

“Carrie was full of energy during filming and even celebrated her 60th birthday with us in Italy where we shot the movie.

“After a night shoot, which went on until 2am, she invited the whole team to celebrate with her and the party ended up being shut down by the police because it was deemed a little too loud. Her passing was very emotional for the whole team.”

The film, which also stars pop sensation Rita Ora, Nell Tiger Free, Sebastian Croft, and Kiera Milward, will follow the story of a young girl named Violet who travels to “a mysterious portal” near a mediaeval Italian village by Fisher’s character Hazel, who offers “a glimpse of what [Violet’s] future might hold” according to Deadline.
