It’s been two years since the sudden passing of Star Wars legend and mental health advocate Carrie Fisher and fans continue to mourn their loss. Now, it looks like the French Bulldog that the Star Wars princess left behind is relocating to Florida.

Gary Fisher, Carrie’s beloved bulldog, has his very own Instagram account and a new post made on the canine’s social media account reveals that the pupper’s set to retire to Florida to enjoy the beachside.

“Just wanted to check in and say it has been 2 years and I miss my mom every day. I tried New York after LA and decided the beach is much better. Hello Florida and the new adventure begins,” the dog's social media handler wrote on his post.



Carrie really loved her dog, and he’d been a huge part of the Star Wars legend’s life. In fact, the doggo had a cameo appearance in Lucasfilm’s latest film in the saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In the film, Gary appeared in the film’s Cantino Bight casino sequence with Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) where the dog showed up as an alien version of himself.

Ever since his passing, Gary has been adapted by Carrie’s former assistant Corby McCoin. Now McCoin is handling Gary’s Instagram account, taking up the responsibility of giving updates to the dog’s fans.

Carrie passed away in December back in 2016 after experiencing a heart attack on a commercial flight. While she wasn’t able to complete filming her scenes for Episode IX, Lucasfilm is bringing her back to the film by putting together what they’ve collected in unused footage.

Star Wars: Episode IX is set to premiere on December 20, 2019.
