2016 was already a tough year, what with the losses of celebrities like Alan Rickman, David Bowie, and Prince; but probably one of the biggest deaths was of Princess Leia herself Carrie Fisher. December 27, 2017 marks the one year anniversary since Fisher's passing, and her co-star Mark Hamill has gone online to pay tribute.
For those who haven't seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi yet, the line Hamill used was the same one that Luke said to Leia when he appeared on Crait. The line was supposed to be a callback to losing Han Solo, but now it can mean the loss of Luke, and now the loss of Fisher herself.
It's quite a bit ironic that Leia is the last surviving character from the original series trio but Carrie Fisher was the one to pass away first.
Regardless of what some fans may say about TLJ, it's no doubt a great last performance from Fisher, and everyone loves how she's given more to do compared to her role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With Leia's role unaltered in The Last Jedi, I'm wondering how J.J. Abrams plans to send Leia off in Episode IX.
Catch Fisher's last performance as Leia in Star Wars: The Last Jedi now in theaters.
