“Sadly, Carrie will not be in ‘Nine,'” Kennedy said. “But we’ll see a lot of her in ‘Eight,’ which is great.”

James Blunt's latest album, The Afterlove, is full of tearjerkers, but "Courtney's Song" undoubtedly cuts the deepest. The track played during a tribute at the public memorial for Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher over the weekend, and Reynolds's son, Todd Fisher, said that it was "written for us." Speaking with Entertainment Tonight last week, Fisher revealed that his sister was good friends with James Blunt. "The last lyric in the song, it's a beautiful song, is, 'I'm here to let you know. I'm here to let you go.' And it's powerful," Todd said. "The simplicity of his songs is pretty amazing. It's not like it's [got] complicated lyrics but something about how he strings all this together is beautiful." Listen below. »

When Debbie Reynolds saw the documentary “Bright Lights,” featuring herself and children Carrie Fisher and Todd Fisher, she was asked what she took away from the film. According to Todd, “She said, ‘I saw how much I loved my children.’ My mother was the ultimate mother. And if you asked her what was your greatest accomplishment, it wasn’t he singing and the dancing and all the entertaining she did. She would say, ‘It was my kids, my family.’ That was what was important to her.”

Following the unexpected deaths of Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, HBO debuted the documentary, Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, about the pair’s emotional relationship that often played out in public and inspired the film, Postcards from the Edge.
The documentary, co-directed by Fisher Stevens (Before the Flood), mixed vintage family movies and clips of their most famous films, alongside a glitzy look at their unique mother-daughter love story.
The film, which aired Saturday, Jan. 07, followed Friday’s funeral for Reynolds and a private memorial service for Fisher on Thursday -- and certainly provided an emotional endcap for the Fisher family.
“It's very hard for me to believe they're gone,” Todd Fisher, Carrie’s brother, wrote on Twitter Saturday evening. “Watching them now, the film freezes time. Magical.”
Todd’s half-siblings, Tricia and Joely Fisher, both responded »
