The world continues to mourn the losses of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds this week, as the Hollywood royalty's passing is felt throughout multiple communities in film, TV, geek culture, and more. For the Star Wars family, the loss of their princess and general has affected every level, from the top executives to the newest fans.
That's apparent at Lucasfilm headquarters in San Francisco, CA, where an impromptu memorial to Carrie Fisher has been put up at the entrance. Underneath the famous "Yoda Fountain" that opens up every episode of "The Star Wars Show" each week, fans and employees have left flowers, lightsabers, pictures, quotes, and other honorariums to Fisher. The hand-made drawings from younger fans are especially touching.
The pictures of Lucasfilm HQ's memorial in the gallery below come from Director of Publicity Tracy Cannobbio, who was surprised to see the display when stopping into work over the holiday week. Other fans have been visiting the memorial, adding to it and paying respects.
Carrie Fisher died at age 60 on Tuesday, having suffered a heart attack Friday afternoon while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. The actress portrayed the role of Leia Organa in the original Star Wars trilogy, returning for the sequel trilogy that kicked off with last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The next film, Star Wars: Episode VIII, wrapped filming over the summer, and will presumably be her final big screen appearance. Her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, most famous for her role in Siingin' in the Rain, passed away around 36 hours later, having suffered a stroke. Our thoughts continue to go out to Carrie's brother Todd Fisher and her daughter Billie Lourd through this trying time.
