A Star Wars Tribute to Carrie Fisher

Yesterday was the first day of Orlando’s Star Wars Celebration, with panels, guests (including Chuck Wendig of terribleminds.com) and everything Star Wars.

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.

  1. Because of women such as Carrie Fisher, I’ve only ever believed in gender equality and equal potential. Her legacy and influence will live forever.
