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.”

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!’”
