Mark Hamill says Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

Meanwhile, director Rian Johnson previously teased that Star Wars: Episode VIII - now known as The Last Jedi - would focus on Rey learning and beginning to understand her connection to The Force. I'd go to her house and we'd sit on her bed for hours, going through the script...

"I'm trying to use you as therapy to get through this together", the actor said. "She made every Celebration so much fun". They even kissed once.

"I think Finn definitely stood up for himself at the end of Force Awakens and caught a bit of an injury to the back".

Hamill led an hourlong tribute to Fisher on Friday evening at the event in Orlando, Florida. "She had you under her spell".

It has already been confirmed that General Leia will appear in Episode IX, reportedly utilising scenes filmed for The Last Jedi.

Players that order the Star Wars Battlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition will not only have access to all the Star Wars: The Last Jedi-inspired pre-order content, found in Star Wars Battlefront II: The Last Jedi Heroes, but can also dominate the battlefront as the ultimate Star Wars elite trooper.

It's "part of the process that I need to move on", Hamill said. "I was her own personal paper doll..."

The five-minute video featured behind-the-scenes footage from Fisher's princess days, her past interviews and remembrances from her co-stars.

His voice cracked as he read a letter he had written shortly after Fisher died in December. And while Hamill certainly wanted to honor the actress' legacy above all else, he admitted that he had been dreading the experience leading up to the panel, saying he'd come down with what he called "psychosomatic laryngitis" while dealing with the reality of having to get up on stage and admit she's gone. "Someone once wrote when someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure". "What Rian [Johnson] wrote, and the performance she [Fisher] ended up giving; I think you guys will find that an awesome tribute to her talent". "And that's how I want you to think of her".
