Carrie Fisher has one, last ride to take in a galaxy far, far away and her big screen bro, Mark Hamill, is just as broken up about it as the rest of us.
Star Wars fans the world over greeted Friday’s news that Fisher would have a role in Episode IX with wistful excitement. We’re all jazzed to see Leia Organa one last time, but many fans are also still coming to terms with Fisher’s unexpected death at the tail end of 2016.
The announcement of her posthumous participation in Episode IX set off an outpouring of love and appreciation from fans on social media. Good cries were had on Friday and Saturday.
