I'm not crying, you're crying

Lucasfilm closed out the 40 Years of Star Wars panel at Star Wars Celebration with a touching tribute to Carrie Fisher, recognizing her iconic role as Princess Leia throughout the franchise.

Fisher, who passed away last December, has been an integral part of Star Wars from its inception, and the video serves as a brief but moving look back at both her work as Leia Organa, and her tremendous presence off-camera. The tribute also includes appearances from various cast and crew members from the original trilogy and the new films, many of whom highlighted how Fisher’s character has been an inspiration both for their own roles in the films as well as for millions of fans.

Composer John Williams made an appearance to close out the tribute by playing Princess Leia's theme for the fans gathered in the room.
