Press Trust of India  |  London 

Director Rian Johnson has said that actress Carrie Fisher had helped a lot in rewriting the screenplay of the upcoming film, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

Speaking at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, the 43 -year-old filmmaker said the late actress would host him at her house and help him firm up the film's screenplay, reported The Independent.

"I'd go to her house and sit on her bed for hours, and we'd go through the script... I love her so much. I just adore her. I connected with her first and foremost as a writer.

"She was an incredible writer, with an incredible mind," Johnson said at the launch of the first trailer of the eight installment of the franchise.

The director described that time spent with Fisher as a "stream of consciousness, jazz poetry ad-lib sessions".
