Carrie Fisher's Dog

During the press junket for Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015, actress Carrie Fisher brought along her trusty canine pet and therapy dog Gary Fisher, and the little guy became something of an internet sensation. The French bulldog appeared on red carpets, did the talk show interview circuit, and stayed by Carrie’s side at all times, his constantly-lolled tongue providing joy to all who laid eyes upon him.

Gary found a new home with Fisher’s assistant after the actress and writer passed away late last year, but now we’ve learned that he’s being added to Star Wars canon – Carrie Fisher’s dog is portraying an alien character in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. See what he looks like in a photo below.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

Hollywood and the music industry have occasionally crossed paths throughout the years — a pop star sings on a romantic-comedy soundtrack, a musician takes a dip in the acting pool — but in the era of needle drops and “Hans Zimmer is a rock god” takes, these intersections will only become more frequent.

Now that the Grammy Award nominations are out, Hollywood has scored big, raking in several nods for prolific blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (best compilation soundtrack) and La La Land (best score soundtrack for visual media), as well a spoken word album nomination for the late and great Carrie Fisher. And of course we can’t go a year without Mr. Rock God himself, Zimmer, scoring two nominations for both Dunkirk and Hidden Figures.

Read on to see more of the Hollywood Grammy nominations.

Carrie Fisher The Last Jedi

In the Star Wars: The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes sizzle reel that debuted at this year’s D23 Expo, Carrie Fisher said the upcoming sequel is powerful because “it’s about family.” Sadly, her words have taken on a whole new meaning in the wake of her sudden death at the end of last year: it will now be about watching the final time this actress – who, for many fans, has felt like a part of their pop culture family for 30 years – steps into the role of Princess-turned-General Leia, one of the most iconic sci-fi heroes ever conceived.

In Entertainment Weekly’s latest barrage of Star Wars news, there’s a story about the bond Leia shares with Oscar Isaac‘s Resistance pilot Poe Dameron, her impact on his growth as a leader, and the vulnerable place we find the Resistance at the start of the new film.

Carrie Fisher‘s untimely death was a blow to fans in this world and in a galaxy far, far away.

It was most of all a blow to the cast and crew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which would inadvertently be Fisher’s last onscreen appearance as Princess, now General, Leia.

While Star Wars Episode 9 will have to deal with Leia’s absence, The Last Jedi will at least offer a way for us to say goodbye to Fisher.
