Carrie Fisher's dog perks up watching 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

  • How could I not repost this? Larry Emdur has shared quite the flashback from his youth comparing himself to Princess Leia to mark the release of Star Wars The Last Jedi

A petition calling for Star Wars' Princess Leia to be named an official Disney Princess has passed 100,000 signatures.

"I'm a big believer of things happening for a reason and I think I ended up on that movie for a reason", Lourd said in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres after losing her mother.

While several Star Wars cast members paid tribute to Fisher in the days after her death (including her on-screen brother and "beloved space twin", Mark Hamill), at the end of Episode XIII fans get to see an official tribute to Fisher. She makes her final appearance as Leia in "The Last Jedi". "He sat on Fisher's former assistant's lap during the film", Veronica Miracle tweets. It undoubtedly is the best decision for the sake of The Last Jedi, with any consequences being borne by the sequel. I felt really strongly that what we have here is so lovely and the way that the character develops, the way it's paid off, and not only that, the horror of trying to manufacture something that - I don't even know what it would have been, but something for the end of this movie that leaves it in a place where the transition is easier, the idea of, "Oh God, how would you fake something like that, and how would it not be bad?"

Russell Wilson Leads Seattle Seahawks In Win Over League-Best Eagles
But they also have just one win against a team that now has a winning record (a 28-23 victory against the Panthers in Week 6). If that does not happen, and the Eagles score, the game is tied at 10-10 and Philadelphia probably goes on to win the game.

Especially ahead of the one-year anniversary of Carrie's passing.

Sharing a pic of herself with her mom in a sweet embrace on the red carpet at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere back in December 2015, the 25-year-old added the simple yet touching caption, "I miss you".

Fisher wasn't the only recognizable character that Gary saw on-screen. Gary now lives with Fisher's former personal assistant, Corby McCoin. They're also not opposed to a CGI Leia.
