Carrie Fisher & Stan Lee Honored in Disney Legends Ceremony

Carrie Fisher and Stan Lee officially became Disney Legends at the D23 Legends Awards!

The late Star Wars actress and the 94-year-old comic book writer were honored during the ceremony on Friday (July 14) in Anaheim, Calif.

Carrie‘s Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill was also honored.

Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger introduced both Stan and Mark on stage.

The event marked Stan‘s first public appearance since the death of his wife Joan earlier this month.

“I would love to give my deepest respects for the super cool space sis I have in Carrie Frances Fisher,” Mark told the crowd. “I loved her. We were like siblings. The good and the bad! We’d have huge fights and not speak to one another. But we loved each other, and what a great thrill it was to come back in The Force Awakens at that time in our lives. There was a comfort level with each other. We could rely on each other. And there was a deep respect. I know if she was here this morning, she would have flipped me the bird at least twice already, so thank you all so much. I’m so humbled and so grateful, and I love you all.”

“I loved Walt Disney,” Stan said during his speech (via THR). “He was more than a man, he was an inspiration. To think that today I’m standing here in the home that Disney built, that paid tribute to Jack [Kirby, his late collaborator] and all things Disney – it is so thrilling. And I can’t leave without saying, ‘Excelsior!’”
