Star Wars: The Last Jedi set to pass $1bn mark by New Year's Eve

Revenues for ‘Star Wars The Last Jedi’ dropped 54% from the previous weekend a typical decline for major blockbusters and a rebound from a larger decline through Sunday

On this anniversary of her passing, Star Wars: The Last Jedi co-star Mark Hamill took to Instagram to pay a tribute to her with three choice images.

She also shared a photo of herself from the trip.

"My momby [sic] had an otherworldly obsession with the northern lights, but I never got to see them with her".

Fisher would appear in many more movies throughout her career - including notable hits like The Blues Brothers and When Harry Met Sally - but it was always her role in Star Wars that provided her greatest success.

Fisher, known for her role as Princess Leia in the "Star Wars" film series, died December 27, 2016 at age 60.

In The Last Jedi, Hamill's character Luke Skywalker tells his sister, Leia, played by Fisher, that "no one's ever really gone" as they say goodbye. Lourd recently chose to take the trip to Norway to see the northern lights, alongside her father Bryan Lourd and his husband Bruce Bozzi, as a way of honoring her mom.

Carrie Fisher's performance as Leia Organa is something so monumental it can not even be put into words.

Hamill said fans know more about the sprawling franchise now than he does.

On a flight back to Los Angeles from London, Fisher had reportedly stopped breathing, and she was taken to UCLA as soon as the plane landed. "Because if I was just another benevolent Jedi training you padawans, we've seen it", Hamill said.

Hamill and Fisher became close after filming the first Star Wars film.

"We are extremely grateful to Lucasfilm and the Star Wars team for their tremendous generosity in agreeing to make this wonderful behind-the-scenes film, to help us promote the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland".

Star Wars: The Last Jedi now has an 83.28 ComicBook.com Composite Score. Still, fans are bound to benefit from Lourd's courage, yet not by lamenting the death of her mother, but her mother's zest for life. Fisher effortlessly reminded us why Leia Organa is a legend, communicating her power, regality, warmth and love in a way that left many in tears.
