Star Wars Celebration in Orlando kicked off last week with an epic panel that celebrated the franchise's 40th Anniversary. It included a heartwarming tribute to the late Carrie Fisher. The next day, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy joined director Rian Johnson for the Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel, celebrating what will ultimately be one of Carrie Fisher's last movies. Both the LucasFilm president and director paid tribute to the late actress in their own way, and Rian Johnson revealed that she even helped him write the Last Jedi script.
During the first half of the panel, hosted by Josh Gad, fans got to see a number of The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes photos that were taken by Rian Johnson on the set, one of which featured Carrie Fisher in full costume, with her feet up on a desk between takes, alongside Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) and John Boyega (Finn).

She was born on October 21st 1956, just a few years after Reynolds became a star. The two would develop a close bond, captured brilliantly in a photo where Fisher, just six years old, watches her mother perform on stage.
As a child Fisher was known as the “family bookworm”, but an opportunity to star on stage alongside her mother in Irene meant that she never graduated. She moved to London where she enrolled in Central School of Speech and Drama, »
