Mark Hamill is sure his space sister will get her star along the Hollywood Walk of Fame — it is just a matter of time.
On Tuesday, the Star Wars icon responded, via Twitter, to a fan who asked the actor if the late Carrie Fisher would ever be bestowed the honor.
Hamill said he was positive it would happen, but it would help for fans to lobby the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to make sure it gets done in a timely fashion.
“Carrie WILL get her well-deserved Star on the Walk of Fame, it’s only a matter of when. The rule is a 5-year wait when awarded posthumously. A letter to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce wouldn’t hurt, urging them to time it to the release of #EpIX #AlwaysWithUs,” Hamill wrote.
When Hamill was awarded his star in March, both he and Harrison Ford spoke about Fisher at the ceremony, saying how much they missed her, and that they could feel her presence.
The beloved actress will appear in the upcoming Star Wars installment, the untitled Episode IX. Footage from director J.J. Abrams’ other chapter, The Force Awakens, will be used for Leia’s role.
Episode IX is due out Dec. 20, 2019.
