Earlier today Billie Lourde came out on stage dressed as Princess Leia to pay tribute to her late mother after the 40 Years of Star Wars panel. It was touching, sweet, and funny. Following her speech the crowd was treated to the excellent tribute video above. The video was even simulcast onto the showroom floor so everyone in attendance of the convention that couldn’t get into the panel (ahem *me*) could see it. The whole floor came to a halt to watch and pay their collective respects to the late, great Ms. Fisher. It was a wonderful way to kick off Celebration.
