"Carrie Fisher was an original, and there will never be another". Disney chief Bob Iger spoke of her "talent, wit and friendship" and decribed Fisher's final "Star Wars" performance as "legendary".

Billie wrote on the post: 'My mom and I went to Disneyland so much that I now realize she may have loved it even more than I did'.

"I really wish she were here".

Among them was Carrie Fisher, the late "Star Wars" princess, who was remembered by Walt Disney Co. Fisher also appears in the film as Skywalker's sister, Leia Organa, a princess-turned-general.

"Becoming part of the Disney family was truly an incredible moment for her", the speech continued.

A fixture of daytime television in recent years has been named a Disney Legend, with the official honor to be bestowed today at D23 Expo: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event. Oprah opened her remarks with a wholehearted "hello.' Then in classic #Oprah Winfrey style, Oprah shared an account that occurred during her dinner the night before while she was a guest of Disney World".

Her last "Star Wars" movie, and her last part alongside Hamill, will be in "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi", due for release in December. "Thank you again, and may the force be with you always".

Just ideal. We're sure Carrie would've loved this tribute. "If she was here, she would have flipped me the bird at least twice already". "We would fight - but we loved each other". He explained, 'there was a comfort level with each other.

As a Disney Legend, Mark joins the likes of Tim Allen, Lea Salonga, Anika Noni Rose, and Dick Van Dyke, who were honored with the award for their contributions to The Walt Disney Company.
