  • 'His ears perked up': Carrie Fisher's dog recognizes her at 'The Last Jedi' screening

Billie will always have the memories they shared together, like how the mother-daughter duo appeared in the last two films of the hit science fiction franchise.

The film is very significant among all as it is the last part for the late actress Carrie Fisher who died past year due to cardiac arrest.

But Fisher, who passed away last December, isn't just the heart and soul of this film - she's actually the architect of several of its best lines. I kind of looked through the footage.

"I felt really strongly that what we have here is so handsome and the way that the character develops, the way it's paid off, and not only that, the horror of trying to manufacture something that - I don't even know what it would have been", Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview, confirming that there was really no alternative to working with what he had.


To start with, it's no spoiler to say that Carrie Fisher is pretty bloomin' awesome in The Last Jedi. But in an interview with the Daily Beast, he has elaborated on the lines that Fisher contributed to - and they're some of the film's most poignant moments. "For all of those reasons I felt really strongly that we had to let this fly". December 14 2017. Dedicated to Carrie by the TCL Chinese Theatre, her Star Wars home since 1977.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in theaters now.

There is no doubt The Last Jedi carefully balanced its lead characters to give them all their own time to shine. Now she is General Leia (no longer just a Princess!) who is charged with combating the evil First Order under the command of Supreme Leader Snoke, played by Andy Serkis. It was heart-wrenching. The idea that somebody would have to deal with that kind of a loss back to back, moment to moment - I mean we'd just had this terrible loss and then here you are just a handful of hours later standing in a different hospital in a different room.
