Star Wars star Mark Hamill pays tribute to 'space sis' Carrie Fisher

Star Wars star Mark Hamill pays tribute to 'space sis' Carrie Fisher

However, because of her busy schedule, Lourd was not able to attend the Awards Show, and the letter ended up being read by Disney chairman Bob Iger.

In a statement, Goldberg said: "Disney and I go way back, since I was a little kid, I mean way back". "She might have even loved it more than I did".

Asked by Yahoo Movies what her favorite Disney movie is, the View host and EGOT victor deferred picking favorites and instead brought up Song of the South, the 1946 Walt Disney-produced live-action/animated film that has remained unreleased for decades due to its racially insensitive portrayal of African Americans in the Reconstruction Era.

Whoopi Goldberg wears a pair of Minnie Mouse shoes while walking the carpet at the D23 Legends Awards ceremony held on Friday morning (July 14) in Anaheim, Calif. "So to become part of the Disney family is a big moment for her". Hamill is most famous for portraying Luke Skywalk in Star Wars. "Being a Disney princess and a Disney Legend would have been her ultimate dream".

Just flawless. We're sure Carrie would've loved this tribute.

On the press line, Hamill spoke about how his Star Wars co-star would have reacted to getting the award and how he hoped her presence in the final of the new trilogy would be treated after Fisher died in December 2016.

"We were like siblings, the good and the bad".

"What a huge thrill it was to come back in "The Force Awakens" at that time in our lives". "May the force be with you always", she wrote, winning an ovation from the audience of around 5,000 packed into the Anaheim Convention Center in southern California. If she were here, she would have flipped me the bird at least twice already'.

'We could rely on each other, and there was a deep respect.

The seven other newly inaugurated Legends were Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, the directors Julie Taymor and Garry Marshall, animator Clyde Geromini, comic artist Manuel Gonzales, and theme park designer Wayne Jackson.
