Carrie Fisher Honored by Brother Todd at TCL Chinese Theatre Before 'Last Jedi' Opening
Hours before Star Wars: The Last Jedi opened at the historic TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, the late Carrie Fisher was honored by her brother, Todd.
Among a throng of fans and others dressed in Star Wars costumes, the Princess Leia actress was remembered with a large plaque.
"Dedicated to Carrie by the TCL Chinese Theatre, her Star Wars home since 1977 'We love you Carrie,'" the plaque read, according to Twitter posts.
Fisher died Dec. 27, 2016. She completed all of her work on The Last Jedi before her passing. TCL Chinese Theatre did not immediately respond to a request for more information on the event.
It was at the exact same theater in 1977 where George Lucas knew he had a hit on his hands when he saw the massive lines for the original Star Wars movie on opening day, he has recalled in previous interviews.
