Carrie Fisher's dog perks up watching 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

Carrie Fisher's dog perks up watching 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

Carrie and I were attracted to one another, but I knew from previous jobs that it would have been a bad idea [to get involved with someone on set]. I remember one time - I'm sure alcohol was involved - we were talking about kissing techniques.

Some movie called Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out right now and Mark Hamill reprises his role as Luke Skywalker in the film.

We think we speak for most when we say we're thankful Johnson stuck to his guns.

"I'm a big believer of things happening for a reason and I think I ended up on that movie for a reason", Lourd said in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres after losing her mother. Hamill has been doing the rounds for a press tour covering the movie, and it's hard to go through one interview without talking about Carrie Fisher. And to honour her memory, her daughter Billie, who also features in the film as Lieutenant Connix, took to Instagram to post a professional photo of the pair from the premiere of the preceding movie, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Fisher, who died last December 27 at age 60, starred in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", which opened in theaters Thursday. The last fans caught of Leia was in the final scene, during which she reassures Rey (Daisy Ridley) that the Resistance can be rebuilt even with a small number of Rebels on hand, because that's all they need to rise again. Johnson had reportedly been working closely with Colin Trevorrow on where the story would go next, and with Abrams now taking over the reigns, expect that relationship to continue. It undoubtedly is the best decision for the sake of The Last Jedi, with any consequences being borne by the sequel.
