Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd celebrated Star Wars Day (May 4) by sharing a nostalgic photo of her late mother.
Star Wars Day is an international celebration of the classic sci-fi series, celebrated every May 4 (“May the Fourth be with you”). To commemorate the occasion, Lourd took to Instagram to share a photo of herself as a young child, alongside her mother and none other than Chewbacca himself, alongside the caption “#maythe4thbewithyou“.
Fisher – who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars series – died at the end of December last year, after suffering a heart attack a few days prior. Fisher’s mother and Lourd’s grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, also sadly passed just a day later. Speaking via another Instagram post in the following days, Billie Lourd thanked well-wishers for their “prayers and kind words”: “[They] have given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist. There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby.”
Last month, Lourd paid tribute to Debbie Reynolds on what would have been her 85th birthday, before fellow Star Wars cast and crew – including George Lucas and Harrison Ford – remembered Carrie Fisher at an official Star Wars convention.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set for release on December 15, 2017.
