Shockwaves were felt across the entertainment industry on December 27, 2016, when Fisher passed away at age 60 in Los Angeles following a heart attack on an inbound flight from London. Equal parts feisty and fearless, over the years the actress cemented her place as a true screen icon, leading to the inevitable Skywalker reunion in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Fans have also been remembering Fisher in on social media, sharing photos, videos, artwork, quotes and more as they pay tribute to her.
The post was accompanied by photos of Hamill and Fisher as well as a sketch of Fisher famously flipping the bird as she holds her beloved dog Gary.
"No one's ever really gone". "I feel very, very lucky to be able to get it on film", Rian Johnson said.
Her final Star Wars role, The Last Jedi, is in theatres now.
"I thought it was a fantastic script", Fisher said, before admitting that no one could have guessed the film's eventual popularity. The location scouts were so taken with Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way that key locations in counties Cork, Kerry, Clare and Donegal were handpicked to represent the planet Ahch-to in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. "I like to let the women come to me rather than be aggressive.' And she said, 'What do you mean?' Well, next thing you know we're making out like teenagers!" Still, fans are bound to benefit from Lourd's courage, yet not by lamenting the death of her mother, but her mother's zest for life. Two of the pictures he shared were of the costars posing together, one in their younger years and one more recent.
Hamill starred in all three original 1977-1983 "Star Wars" movies and had a cameo appearance as his much older self at the end of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (2015).
