Billie Lourd Accepts Carrie Fisher's Disney Legends Award With Touching Speech

Billie Lourd penned a heartfelt speech to honor her late mother Carrie Fisher at the D23 Legends Awards!

Although the 24-year-old actress couldn’t be at the ceremony in person on Friday (July 14), her speech was read by Disney CEO Bob Iger while bestowing Carrie with the Disney Legends Award.

“As far back as I can remember, my mom and I have been Disney fanatics. I was so obsessed with Ariel that I wanted to change my name. We went to Disneyland so much that I now realize she might have even loved it more than I did,” Billie wrote.

She continued, “Becoming part of the Disney family was truly an amazing moment for her. She secretly always wanted to be a Disney princess, so getting to be a Disney princess and a Disney legend would have been her ultimate dream. I wish I could be there to accept this award on her behalf, but unfortunately, I am currently working on American Horror Story. I am beyond grateful to Mr. Iger and everyone at Disney for this incredible honor. Thank you again, and may the force be with you always.”
