  • Today at D23 Expo 2017 Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled the epic detailed model of the Star Wars-themed lands coming to Disneyland park and Disney's Hollywood Studios which will remain on display throughout the weekend as

Asked by Yahoo Movies what her favorite Disney movie is, the View host and EGOT victor deferred picking favorites and instead brought up Song of the South, the 1946 Walt Disney-produced live-action/animated film that has remained unreleased for decades due to its racially insensitive portrayal of African Americans in the Reconstruction Era.

Fisher and Hamill's presentations came toward the end of the Legends Awards presentation at D23, which honored nine others, including Stan Lee, Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg.

As a Disney Legend, Mark joins the likes of Tim Allen, Lea Salonga, Anika Noni Rose, and Dick Van Dyke, who were honored with the award for their contributions to The Walt Disney Company.


Whoopi Goldberg wipes some dirt from Mickey Mouse's face on the red carpet after accepting a Disney Legends award at D23 Expo in Anaheim, on Friday, July 14, 2017. However, while there's been debate over whether Leia should officially be made a Disney Princess or not, it's clear she's already considered one in the hearts and minds of her fans. Among her many voiceover credits, Goldberg has also voiced roles for Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, Japanese animated feature Captain Planet and the Planeteers, and the classic 1995 series Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist.

The 94-year-old Marvel comic book icon was the only award recipient who actually got to meet Walt Disney. "We went to Disneyland so much that I now realize she might have even loved it more than I did", Lourd wrote. According to US News, he also paid tribute to Fisher, saying, "I would love to give my deepest respects for the super cool space sis I have in Carrie Frances Fisher".

"We were like siblings, the good and the bad. I was so obsessed with Ariel that I wanted to change my name", Lourd wrote. "We can rely on one another". Fisher along with co-star Mark Hamil was inducted as 'Disney Legends'. "At that time in our lives, we were comfortable with each other", Hamill said.
