Carrie Fisher's Dog Gary Reportedly Recognized Her While Watching The Last Jedi

The late Carrie Fisher appears in a role much bigger than many might expect since her untimely demise.

A tweet from an ABC reporter read: "The late @carrieffisher's dog Gary just watched #TheLastJedi!"

The production team faced a hard challenge in the wake of Fisher's passing, as they had to decide whether to edit the film to wrap up Leia's story in some way or to preserve her final performance as it was intended.

It comes after Corby previously admitted Gary has been providing emotional support to Carrie's supporters, who love seeing her four-legged friend at events and have encouraged Corby to keep taking him out.

When asked if Hamill knew about his co-star's affair, the actor explained that he only found out after they finished filming and it was their editor Marcia (who was married to director George Lucas at the time) who told him about it.

"Luckily we have a fantastic storyteller in J.J. Abrams who is going to figure out a way to bring it home in the end, that's going to be satisfying, I know he's going to", he said.

She went on: "What Carrie got out of going to these Comic-Cons, were, you know, how many people would come up and say, 'You're such an influence for women'".

Sharing a pic of herself with her mom in a sweet embrace on the red carpet at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere back in December 2015, the 25-year-old added the simple yet touching caption, "I miss you".

Fisher adopted Gary from her actress daughter, Billie Lourd, as a service pet sometime around 2012 to help her deal with bipolar disorder. She makes her final appearance as Leia in "The Last Jedi".

Reflecting on her enormous losses last Christmas - that saw grandma Debbie Reynolds die a day after her mum died on December 27 - Billie has described the grief as "surreal".

But the pair then both say, "May the Force be with you, always" in unison.
