Star Wars: The Final Jedi addresses loss of life of Carrie Fisher

It was fitting that one of the fans present at a Thursday screening for the blockbuster film was perhaps Fisher's closest companion: Gary, her French bulldog.

Fans will possibly be able to see Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher share the screen once again in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The release of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" - the last project Carrie filmed before her December 2016 death - brought her portrayal of Princess Leia to the big screen one last time.

ABC News reporter Veronica Miracle shared the news on Twitter when she wrote: 'The late 's dog Gary just watched #TheLastJedi!

A video clip showed the dog wearing his very own X-wing pilot uniform. "She even said, 'Is there anything for Billie in it?' - meaning her daughter - ever the stage mother". Before you do that though, learn everything you need to know with our comprehensive guide to The Last Jedi.

The Last Jedi saw Fisher's Leia using the Force to avoid death after the First Order destroyed part of the Resistance's ship.

"She said his ears perked up every time she was on screen!"

Gary's cinema trip comes after Corby previously admitted the dog has been providing emotional support to Carrie's supporters, who love seeing her four-legged friend at events and have encouraged Corby to keep taking him out. Given that we have a handsome, complete performance from her that I think audiences deserve to see, and I think it will mean a lot for them, that ray of hope from Leia.

"Before working with Carrie, before understanding these type of conditions, it's hard to explain".

'When I go to a Comic-Con or something it's not there to make money.

"Luckily we have a fantastic storyteller in J.J. Abrams who is going to figure out a way to bring it home in the end, that's going to be satisfying, I know he's going to".

'What Carrie got out of going to these Comic-Cons, were, you know, how many people would come up and say, 'You're such an influence for women'. However, with the upcoming Episode IX reportedly being tipped as "the Leia movie" in early drafts, there were major questions over how/if The Last Jedi would handle the departure of the bun-haired legend.
