Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Mark Hamill yanks criticism, praises movie

Fisher died at the age of 60 in December 2016, four days after suffering cardiac arrest during a flight from London to Los Angeles. However, Hamill retracted these claims, with a tweet that called Star Wars: The Last Jedi "all-time GREAT", while regretting his public criticisms of the movie.

In the IMDB interview, Hamill did say that his initial impression had been mistaken. The news left the world and fans devastated as countless people paid tribute to the fallen Star Wars princess.

Hamill also posted a painting of Fisher sticking up her middle finger while holding her dog Gary.

Prior to The Last Jedi, Luke Skywalker hadn't spoken since 1983, so it's small wonder why fans (us included!) felt the emotional impact of Hamill's Jedi Master reaching out to his sister Leia.

In the caption, he tweeted, "No one's ever really gone..."

Without question, the most stirring tribute came from Lourd, who took to her Instagram to share a unique tribute to her mother.

Eddie Gallen, a specialist in extreme scaffolding, assembled the famous Star Wars spaceship at famed Malin Head. "I used to think I was a drug addict, pure and simple - just someone who could not stop taking drugs willfully", she told ABC News in 2000.

Comic book artist Bill Sienkiewicz‏ tweeted a drawing of Fisher as Leia, writing, "Speaking of talented lovely badasses". But I'm also grateful for all that she was able to give us while she was here.

That hashtag of CarrieOnForever has resulted in an outpouring of heartfelt messages and tributes to Fisher, including a touching animation from Disney Story Artist Brian Kesinger. Along with the rest of the cast, he called the film a ideal tribute to her.

Hamill starred in all three original 1977-1983 "Star Wars" movies and had a cameo appearance as his much older self at the end of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (2015).
