Billie Lourd Honors Carrie Fisher On Anniversary of Her Death

Is This When We'll See The First Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi set to pass $1bn mark by New Year's Eve

Fisher, who was 60, died from sudden cardiac arrest on December 27, 2017, after suffering a medical emergency during a transatlantic flight from London to Los Angeles four days earlier. Now that The Last Jedi, the second part of Disney and Lucasfilm's new Star Wars trilogy, is past us, people have immediately begun speculating onto what the closing chapter will be about.

We've written plenty about the negative reaction that The Last Jedi has received from some fans - some valid, some not - with much of the ire directed at Johnson's radical choices for the franchise's beloved characters.

He accompanied it with a amusing artwork of a sketch showing Fisher, who passed away suddenly previous year, in robes and a crown, carrying her famous french bulldog, Gary Fisher, in one hand as she stuck up the middle finger of the other.

In the caption, he tweeted, "No one's ever really gone..."


You can check out Hamill's post below.

During an interview back in 2015, Fisher touched on her thoughts about reprising her role as the princess turned general and what it meant to her.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is showing in theaters now. To many fans, and Hamill, it seemed a huge 180 from the Luke that we last left in The Return of the Jedi, whose selfless heroism helped turn Darth Vader to the Light at the last minute.

"I thought it was a fantastic script", Fisher said, before admitting that no one could have guessed the film's eventual popularity.


Interested in Star Wars?

The actor uploaded a picture on his Twitter page that featured photos of the two together and a cartoon image of Fisher giving the middle finger.

Fisher passed away after completing her work for this year's Star Wars installment The Last Jedi, with the movie later going on to be dedicated to her memory. "That's the beauty of it - she lives forever in a sense".
