Following her sudden passing late past year, many of her scenes take on a whole new meaning.
According to Mark Hamill, sparks were flying between Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker on the original Star Wars set. That much we have always known. The touching and subtle tribute graces the screen for a notable amount of time (long enough for a few tears to roll down your face before the next name appears). Ford, who portrayed Han Solo in the movies, and Fisher’s characters were love interests in the “Star Wars” films.
He said: “I’m selfishly mad that she’s not here to make me laugh”.
During an initial attack it looks as though Leia dies after TIE Fighters blow a hole in the side of her vessel and she is sucked out into the vacuum of space.
Meanwhile others found it hilarious, like one who said: ‘Just spat my water out ha ha’.
Carrie Fisher was an incredibly beloved person in and out of the Star Wars universe. And if you miss seeing Gary on talk shows with his mom, you can check out his Instagram.
Many fans have also wondered if Episode IX will potentially utilize unused footage of the actress to complete her journey.
“We were all over each other”, Hamill continued to the British newspaper.
But as hearts stopped throughout the cinema and breaths were sharply intaken as one, Leia channels the Force in a spectacular moment that rewrites the rulebook and proves she can give her brother a run for his money. “I hope it’ll mean something to them”.
John Boyega, who plays Finn, agreed. Kathleen Kennedy refuted any early rumors that Leia would appear as a CGI character, and assured fans that her lack of presence in the next installment would be handled delicately.
Carrie Fisher in costume for a Star Wars Vanity Fair cover shoot. I was defensive when people would criticize her and I’d get mad at her when she was self-indulgent, which was quite a lot. She manages to return on-board, but she’s left unconscious and her condition remains quite serious for much of the movie. “But I wanted to ask the women in this film about the impact that Princess Leia had on generations of young girls who were watching these movies, even though there wasn’t a whole lot of variety for them”.
