The new Star Wars film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, isn't even premiering till December, but already its cast has stepped back into the limelight, releasing a new trailer and discussing the upcoming sequel as part of a Star Wars convention down in Orland, Florida.
"We're using each other as therapy today", Hamill said, shortly after he struggled through reading his official statement on Fisher's passing. And Daisy Ridley, the star of the show as the new Star Wars heroine Rey, opted for a red and orange Stella McCartney ensemble, standing out next to her more monochromatically inclined co-stars John Boyega and Mark Hamill, the original Luke Skywalker, who reprises his role in the new series. "Part of me did fall in love with her".
"We fought for each other, we fought for those who could not, but we never imagined it would end like this", begins the first trailer for Season 4 of Disney XD's Star Wars Rebels, which was unveiled during today's Star Wars Celebration Orlando! "You wanted to please her".
"Hamill told stories of visiting with Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, in NY and attending incredible parties at their homes in Los Angeles". "You're going to love her".
But the night belonged to Hamill as he worked through his grief, almost breaking down when he read a letter he wrote shortly after her death. "And that's how I want you to think of her". Still, Hamill said that there hasn't been a day that's gone by where he didn't think of her - "and when I think of her, she's looking down from the celestial stratosphere with those big brown eyes, that sly smile on her face as she lovingly extends me the middle finger".
He said that while he's still in mourning, he's focusing on her legacy.
