Greetings Space Cadets, at the D23 convention Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher received an awesome award. Disney inducted Carrie Fisher into the Disney Legends hall of fame. The world misses her dearly, and it brings us great joy to see her honoured in this way.
Carrie’s daughter Billie Lourd penned a touching letter to be read at the ceremony as she was unable to attend. Billie Lourd wrote.
“We went to Disneyland so much that I now realize that she might have even loved it more than I did,” Billie wrote. “So becoming a part of the Disney family was truly an amazing moment for her. She secretly always wanted to be a Disney princess, so getting to be a Disney princess and a Disney legend would have been her ultimate dream.”
Mark Hamill, was also honoured Carrie Fisher at the Disney Legends D23 convention saying.
“I would love to give my deepest respects for the super cool space sis I have in Carrie Frances Fisher,” the actor who plays Luke Skywalker said. “I loved her. And we were like siblings. The good and the bad! We’d have huge fights and not speak to one another. But we loved each other, and what a great thrill it was to come back in The Force Awakens at that time in our lives. There was a comfort level with each other. We could rely on each other. And there was a deep respect. I know if she was here this morning, she would have flipped me the bird at least twice already, so thank you all so much. I’m so humbled and so grateful, and I love you all. Thank you.”
Princess Leia will continue to live on in the Disney Legends hall of fame.
