This special tribute to Carrie Fisher was part of the kick off to the 40th Anniversary celebration of Star Wars kicks off in Orlando, Florida.
It wouldn’t be a celebration of 40 years of “Star Wars” without a touching Carrie Fisher tribute.
And that’s exactly what happened at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, which also included a surprise Harrison Ford appearance, a John Williams performance and jokes about George Lucas’ dialogue.
Attendees were treated to that and more Thursday at the kick-off of the four-day fan event marking the anniversary of Lucas’ space saga.
“She was very strong, very smart, very funny, very bold and very tough. There were not very many people like her. They’re one in a billion,” Lucas said, recalling Fisher’s willingness to tell him when his dialogue was too difficult to say in portraying Princess Leia. “We’ll all love her forever and ever.”
