A beautiful video celebrating the incredible Carrie Fisher has been released.
As a girl, Princess Leia (along with Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman and Lindsay Wagner’s Bionic Woman), was one of my icons. I was shown strong and beautiful women who not only shaped my views of women but also started my love of sci-fi.
Here is the tribute from yesterday at the convention with George Lucas, Kathleen Kennedy, and daughter Billie Lourd.
The world lost a badass woman (and sadly, we lost her mother Debbie Reynolds a day later). The legacy that she has left, just like the universe that Leia lived in, will endure for a very long time.
Out of all the pictures and quotes that I could have picked, this one seemed to suit her best.
CARRIE, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU….ALWAYS.
