It's heartbreaking to think that the Star Wars universe has seen the last of Leia Organa, who was fearless, uncompromising, and inspiring to all who knew her.

Fisher told various media outlets that Disney and Lucasfilm had been given permission to use footage of the actress in "Star Wars: Episode IX".

Speaking at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, he said: "As attracted as I was to her, I thought I couldn't handle her as a girlfriend". This will not be the case.

This image released by Lucasfilm shows Adam Driver as Kylo Ren in a scene from the upcoming "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", expected in theaters in December. What was your favourite role of Carries? "Within 20 minutes, she was telling me personal stories about her mother and father that I wouldn't have shared with you if I'd known you 10 years". I think the legacy should continue.

As the world still grapples with the fact that Carrie Fisher is gone, the galaxy far, far away is coming to terms with the loss of its own princess general. I would do insane things to amuse her on the set.

They even shared a steamy make-out session once, he said.

German government representative for cooperation with Russia, Gernot Erler, called for investigation into "these bad reports ". We are also outraged by the reaction of the officials of the Chechen Republic, who in fact justify the killings.

"I'm mad", the actor said, his voice cracking.

The trailer which dropped today for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was many things.

"I love her so much, man, I just adore her, and I connected with her first and foremost as a writer". There's also the mandatory space-laser dogfights featuring TIE Fighters and X-Wings, as well as a cryptic reference to "The Balance" along with a shot of what looks like some sort of ancient, time-worn Jedi text.

His voice cracked as he read a letter he had written shortly after Fisher died in December.

Hamill led an hour-long tribute to Fisher on Friday evening at the event. "She's not a soldier, she's not looking to be a hero".
