Mark Hamill Remembers 'Star Wars' Co-Star Carrie Fisher In Touching Tribute

Some "Star Wars" fans have echoed Hamill's sentiments on the new direction taken in "The Last Jedi", but that hasn't stopped the film from dominating the box office since its December 14 release.

Hamill recently opened up to The Guardian about working with Fisher on the franchise's first film, which premiered in 1977.

The Instagram account for Fisher's dog Gary also paid tribute to the late star, sharing a photo of her and the pooch together.

As Mark Hamill stated in his post, no one ever truly dies, and the fact that she feels just as relevant now as she did last year or two years back is evidence of that. Hamill posted, with the hashtags #AlwaysWIthUs and #CarrieOnForever.

The actor also returned to the "Jedis don't give up" issue in an interview with Spanish website SensaCine and said he "almost had to think of Luke as another character".

After studying in London and Yonkers, New York, Fisher made her big-screen debut in the Columbia Pictures comedy Shampoo, two years before picking up the role that would make her a household name: Princess Leia.

"I thought it was a fantastic script", Fisher said, before admitting that no one could have guessed the film's eventual popularity.

"This is the next generation of 'Star Wars, '" he added.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now playing in theaters. "I love you times infinity".

That hashtag of CarrieOnForever has resulted in an outpouring of heartfelt messages and tributes to Fisher, including a touching animation from Disney Story Artist Brian Kesinger. The film's closing credits displayed a handsome message to Fisher who completed all of her scenes before her death. Along with the rest of the cast, he called the film a ideal tribute to her.
