Watch Star Wars Celebration's Touching Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Cry All the Tears

By James Whitbrook on at

Today, Star Wars Celebration kicked off in Orlando—but one very special member of the Star Wars cast, the dearly missed Carrie Fisher, could not be there to stand alongside her fellow actors. Instead, we have this beautiful tribute to a mother, a princess, a general, and a hero beloved by all.

Played at the end of this year’s 40th anniversary panel, the tribute, accompanied by messages from George Lucas, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd, the special video concluded with a heartwrenching live performance of “Leia’s Theme,” conducted by John Williams.

Four months on from Fisher’s tragic passing last December, it’s a reminder of how much her colleagues, her fans, and the whole world still adore her.
