Billie Lourd honours Carrie Fisher as Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens

Carrie Fisher Princess Leia Star Wars The Last Jedi

Fisher's Leia also appears in all of the original three Star Wars films as well as 2015's The Force Awakens. The film also carries extra emotional weight, as it's the last appearance Carrie Fisher will have as General Leia, following her untimely death one year ago.

A tweet from an ABC reporter read: "The late @carrieffisher's dog Gary just watched #TheLastJedi! Don't show them how anxious you are, '" Hamill recalled in an interview. He was CGI'd to appear like an alien lapdog, allowing Carrie's dog to remain on set during her scenes with The Resistance. Director Rian Johnson was then faced with some hard decisions regarding how to portray the character in The Last Jedi and to give her a proper send off.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, the film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio del Toro.

When asked if Hamill knew about his co-star's affair, the actor explained that he only found out after they finished filming and it was their editor Marcia (who was married to director George Lucas at the time) who told him about it. However, with the upcoming Episode IX reportedly being tipped as "the Leia movie" in early drafts, there were major questions over how/if The Last Jedi would handle the departure of the bun-haired legend.

Since Fisher's tragic passing at the end of a year ago, Gary has been adopted by Fisher's assistant, Corby McCoin, and continues to have a thriving social media presence.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" gets the hook in the audience quickly, with battle scenes and lots of hostility intrigue immediately.
