THE BEST WAYS TO WATCH STAR WARS
Hollywood has added a famed star to the iconic walkway as a monument to the late Princess Leia. Princess Leia was played by Fisher in six of the Star Wars films. She tragically passed away in 2016 at the age of 60, but her legacy lives on.
Despite passing before filming had finished on the last of Disney‘s Star Wars films the creators were able to use computer generated imagery of the actress to complete her scenes and fans were emotional to see her last time acting as the iconic female icon.

He said that the accolade was “long overdue and so well-deserved” when it was announced last month that she would finally be getting her name on the walkway.
Despite news reports that the siblings of the actress haven’t been invited Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd, who is also a Hollywood actress and starred in the most recent Star Wars trilogy, will be attending the special event today.
