In almost four months after Carrie Fisher’s death and a touching speech by George Lucas, Star Wars releases their official tribute to the Princess yesterday at the Star Wars Celebration week convention.
It’s a touching tribute to Carrie Fisher, to her character and her role, and a remembrance that she is still loved by many today.
….she was the toughest one of the group. And that’s the key to Carrie being able to play the part. It was a hard part to play. And she pulled it off brilliantly. And it really shows the level of her talent and at the same time, she was fun to be with….and obviously we’ll all miss her. But she’ll always be the Princess who took command and never backed down, never was in jeopardy. She was always helping the other guys get out of the messes they created …. we’ll all love her forever and ever.
