Rian Johnson Wanted Audiences to Have Carrie Fisher's 'Beautiful, Complete' Performance

The pup even has a cameo in the film as a space creature, as he was a fixture when Fisher was on set.

Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd has posted on social media after watching the Star Wars: The Last Jedi that she misses her mother who died this month a year ago.

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

Presumably, it's now up to Episode IX writer/director JJ Abrams to come up with the flawless way to send Leia on her final voyage.

It was fitting that one of the fans present at a Thursday screening for the blockbuster film was perhaps Fisher's closest companion: Gary, her French bulldog.

Are you planning on seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theaters? It may be a confusing plot thread to leave hanging over for J.J. Abrams and Episode IX, but you can't help but admire Johnson's choice to keep the movie how he intended.

Merriam-Webster Declares 'Feminism' as the Word of the Year for 2017
March organisers claimed that women's rights were under threat following the election of Mr Trump to the White House. The word refers to someone in "a state or period of senile decay marked by decline of mental poise and alertness".

When it comes to Star Wars hookups, people are likely quick to think of Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford.

Laura Dern appears as Vice-Admiral Holdo, in charge of taking over command when Fisher's character is incapacitated.

"We have a handsome, complete performance from [Fisher] that I think audiences deserve to see, and I think it will mean a lot for them, that ray of hope from Leia". "With this movie I just wanted audiences to have this performance".

Rounding a legacy that has been some 40 years in the making, the decision to keep Leia alive certainly seems like the right one to make. Directed by Rian Johnson, The Last Jedi picks up with Rey undergoing her training with Luke Skywalker while The First Order plots a counterattack against The Resistance.

Instead, as we've written elsewhere, the new movie acknowledges Fisher's death in a sweeter, subtler way in a special message displayed at the end of the adventure: "In loving memory of our Princess, Carrie Fisher".
