'Star Wars' Releases Touching Tribute Video To Carrie Fisher

"She was imperfect in many ways, but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect,” her daughter, Billie Lourd, said at a "Star Wars" event.

The collective sorrow from “Star Wars” fans over Carrie Fisher’s death continues to be as vast as space.

Lucasfilm produced a Star Wars Celebration event that is currently taking place in Orlando through Sunday. The gathering has already featured appearances by “Star Wars” actors, such as Mark Hamill and Felicity Jones, and also debuted a new video tribute to Fisher, who died on Dec. 27, 2016.

Composer John Williams also conducted a musical tribute to Fisher, which seemingly received a standing ovation.

Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, spoke about her mother at the event on Thursday, wearing a Tom Ford dress modeled to look like Princess Leia’s iconic outfit.

“She was imperfect in many ways, but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect,” Lourd told the crowd. “My mom, like Leia, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable, but not me and not you. That was why she loved you, because you accepted and embraced all of her.” 

The late actress’ brother, Todd Fisher, revealed last week that he and Lourd gave permission to Disney to use previously shot footage of Carrie in the next two “Star Wars” movies

“I think the legacy should continue,” Fisher told New York Daily News.
