Mark Hamill says that he finds facing his final 'Star Wars' chapter without co-star Carrie Fisher "bitter-sweet".

The actor (66) will reprise the role of Luke Skywalker in Episode IX of the space saga and it has been confirmed that unreleased footage of Fisher as Princess Leia will also be used.

Hamill said: "It's bitter-sweet facing my final chapter without her - she is simply irreplaceable. I'm finding solace in the fact that she won't be replaced."

The footage of Fisher to be used in the ninth film in the series was originally shot for 2015's 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'.

Fisher died in 2016 at the age of 60, just after she finished work on 'The Last Jedi'.
