May the fourth be with you: Fans remember Princess Leia on first Star Wars Day without Carrie Fisher

Twitter devotes this 'May the fourth' to Carrie Fisher as today marks the first Star Wars Day without the Princess Leia actress.

As important as Princess Leia was to the Star Wars franchise, she was no less influential to fans. Actress Carrie Fisher brought to life one of the most iconic characters to ever exist. Back in the 70s, for Fisher to have portrayed the role of a headstrong Leia Organa was pioneering and she was a remarkable artist to have pulled it off. But, Carrie Fisher was perhaps more impressive than the character that thrust her career. As Leia once said of her mother, “She was very beautiful. Kind, but sad.

Fisher died on December 27 last year from a cardiac arrest at the age of 60. Before her untimely demise, the actress was already shooting for the seventh Star Wars film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film, which will be released on December 15, 2017, will feature Fisher as she embodies Princess Leia for the final time as a tribute to the actress.
