In case you missed it, Mark Hamill has been posting some awesome tributes to Star Wars ahead of the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Not surprisingly, the screen icon saved the best for last, and it's a heartwarming tribute to the late Carrie Fisher.

Hamill posted the tribute on his official Twitter account. Check it out below.

It's a sweet tribute to the woman Hamill has worked with for several decades and although she is no longer with us, Fisher was still a huge part of The Rise of Skywalker. After all, Leia Organa was revealed to be Rey's new mentor as she helped the younger girl train for the battle ahead. In addition to that, it was confirmed that Leia actually trained as a Jedi although she chose to lead the Resistance instead.

It has been a truly amazing journey for Hamill as well. He has played Luke in the original trilogy and returned for the sequels as an older disillusioned hermit. Nevertheless, Luke still proved that he could be the Master that Rey needed at the last minute.

Although The Rise of Skywalker provided an acceptable conclusion to the Skywalker Saga, not everyone is pleased with the film. For instance, The Mandalorian star Jake Cannavale has blasted Episode IX on social media, calling it the worst movie in the franchise. Nevertheless, fans continue to defend the film.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is currently screening in theaters worldwide.
