If You're Going to Watch One Thing Today, Let It Be This "Star Wars" Tribute to Carrie Fisher
Apr 14, 2017
"Star Wars" just released a video titled "A Tribute to Carrie Fisher" that will make you cry, laugh, and smile, all while shedding light on the Carrie Fisher we all knew and loved as not just Princess Leia but as a mom.
Fisher passed away on December 27, 2016, and her death was been mourned across the country, and the world. On Wednesday night, at a "Star Wars" Celebration and 40th anniversary pannel, Billie Lourd was overwhelmed with "the ultimate strength of the force" from all of the incredible fans and people that loved her mom as much as she did, she wrote on her Instagram account.
Dressed in a white Princess Leia dress, Lourd took stage at the Celebration introducing the memorial montage.
"She loved you because you embraced all of her. The strong soldier she was and the vulnerable side, who fought her own dark side," Lourd said at the celebration. "She loved this incredible character she got to create — this force, called Leia."
Lourd then recited Leia's famous "Help me, Obi-Wan" monologue in a performance honoring her late mother:
