Christie had this to say talking to reporters at the recent SAG Awards:

“I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I was very overexcited. I made no secret of the fact that I really campaigned for the part for a long time and then I was delighted when J.J. Abrams wanted to have me in the film and then wanted to cast me in this role that had originally been designed for a man.”

Rian Johnson will be directing Episode VIII with actors Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac reprising their roles.
