Lucasfilm kicked off their ‘Star Wars Celebration’ convention with a 40 Years of ‘Star Wars’ panel hosted by Warwick David and featured various celebrities such as George Lucas, Mark Hamill Harrison Ford, Kathleen Kennedy, Billy Dee Williams, Hayden Christensen, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Dave Filoni to name just a few. But it’s what happened at the end that touches all the fans the most. Recognizing her iconic role as Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd came out to thank fans for their love and support of her mother which was then followed by a video tribute to the late actress.
The video features clips of Fisher during the filming of the ‘Star Wars’ films along with outtakes and behind the scenes footage. The montage just reminds us more of why we love the actress and her character and why her passing leaves a hole in many ‘Star Wars’ fans’ hearts.
At the end, composer John Williams was revealed behind the curtain with a full orchestra playing Princess Leia’s theme.
Yeah… I’m not crying. You’re crying…
