Carrie Fisher's Dog Gary Attends the Opening Night of 'The Last Jedi'

Carrie Fisher's Dog Gary Attends the Opening Night of 'The Last Jedi'

On Friday, reporter Veronica Miracle shared a video of Gary in Star Wars gear at a screening of the film.

The world lost an icon a year ago when Carrie Fisher tragically passed away at the age of 60. 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. Before you do that though, learn everything you need to know with our comprehensive guide to The Last Jedi.

The idea that somebody would have to deal with that kind of a loss back to back, moment to moment - I mean we'd just had this frightful loss and then here you are just a handful of hours later standing in a different hospital in a different room. "She gives a really attractive performance in this movie, and we finished shooting when she passed", said director Rian Johnson. Fisher tragically passed away a year ago and Hamill has frequently spoken about his long friendship with her that began on the set of Star Wars. More specifically, the film is dedicated to her.

Laura Dern appears as Vice-Admiral Holdo, in charge of taking over command when Fisher's character is incapacitated. They're also not opposed to a CGI Leia. For all of those reasons I felt really strongly that we had to let this fly.

Daisy Ridley calls 'Star Wars
We will have to wait to pass judgment for ourselves until December 15th, when Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in our galaxy. The most exciting part for me is the number of people saying they were surprised by The Last Jedi .

"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", Johnson said.

And premiere night wasn't just for the stars of the movie.

Launched by Star Wars fan Cody, the Change.org petition reads: "This would be a wonderful way to remember Carrie and a welcoming to one of Disney's new properties that is beloved by millions".
