Carrie Fisher's daughter pays tribute to her a year after her death

Carrie Fisher's daughter pays tribute to her a year after her death

Surrounding the release of the extremely divisive new Star Wars movie The Last Jedi, Mark Hamill has not exactly been biting his tongue. Now, one year after Fisher's passing, family, close friends and industry colleagues are paying tribute to the acclaimed actress, screenwriter and author.

Fisher was 60 years old when she died last December, just a few days after she was rushed to the hospital after suffering cardiac arrest on a transatlantic flight.

The coroner later determined that the actress had numerous drugs in her system, which contributed to her death.

"The Last Jedi" Figure serves as a fitting tribute to the late Carrie Fisher's final appearance as the beloved Princess.




Written and directed by Rian Johnson, The Last Jedi also stars Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose, Gwendoline Christie as Phasma, Domhnall Gleeson as Hux and Andy Serkis as Snoke.

Phase two of the campaign was a fun, irreverent promotional film about holidays along the Wild Atlantic Way, featuring Mark Hamill - aka Luke Skywalker.

"Beauty and the Beast" actor Josh Gad tweeted a gif of Fisher, writing, "We miss you". "We have a handsome, complete performance from her that I think audiences deserve to see", he said "and I think it will mean a lot for them, that ray of hope from Leia". After facing some criticism from Star Wars fans online, Hamill took back his comments and praised director Johnson on Twitter. "But Carrie and I found pretexts". He's not my Luke Skywalker, but I had to do what Rian wanted me to do because it serves the story well. "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!"

"It sends her off in a very fantastic, awesome way", he previously said.
