Mark Hamill Delivers Touching Tribute to Carrie Fisher at 'Star Wars' Celebration

Mark Hamill paid a special tribute to his friend and co-star Carrie Fisher at the 2017 Star Wars Celebration.

The 65-year-old actor took to the stage on Friday afternoon (April 14) for a “group therapy” session to celebrate Carrie‘s life.

“She would want us to be having fun and laughing – that’s what she was all about, so my intent is to honor her and acknowledge her extraordinary contribution to our lives and not let us be consumed with grief,” he told the audience.

Between stories of hilarious moments on set with Carrie and how they broke out into a giggle fit after making out, Mark expressed how hard it has been dealing with her loss.

Mark added, “Life goes on. It is tragic you can’t dress it up, but I bounce around the stages of grief, and just when I come – I never think of her in the past tense, and just when I think I’ve reached acceptance, I bounce back to anger.”

Mark also took the chance to thank fans for helping him get through the loss.

Carrie Fisher Will Not Appear in 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

Carrie Fisher will not appear in Star Wars: Episode IX, despite her brother Todd‘s recent claim.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy made the unfortunate announcement during an interview with ABC News, explaining that Todd was “confused.”

“Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine. But we will see a lot of Carrie in eight,” Kathleen said.

Todd previously said that he had given Disney permission to use recent footage of Carrie for the ninth film, but it looks like this is not the case.

Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to hit theater May 23, 2019.

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Cast Give Details on Movie at Panel!

The cast of Star Wars: The Last JediMark Hamill, Kelly Marie Tran, John Boyega, and Daisy Ridley attend the panel for the movie during the 2017 Star Wars Celebration at Orange County Convention Center on Friday (April 14) in Orlando, Fla.

Director Rian Johnson, Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy and panel moderator Josh Gad were also in attendance. At the panel, the cast was asked some questions about where the characters are in the new movie.

John was asked at the panel if Finn’s friendship with Poe would continue to blossom. He said, “Absolutely… Poe’s my boy. There’s always a new adventure for them to go on.”

“In The Last Jedi, it’s a test for all the characters, but specifically for Finn. He wants to find his place now,” John continued. “Is he going to be a part of the Resistance or is he going to keep running away from the First Order? We’ll see.”

Kelly was asked about her new character during the panel as well. “My character’s name is Rose. She’s part of the Resistance. And she works in maintenance, and I just can’t wait for you to meet her,” she said.

“To a certain extent it’s not Luke’s story anymore. But I think he’s an important part to the overall arc of the saga and again, there’s a lot of mystery about him, even within the film. You have to fill in your own backstory,” Mark added.
