Fisher died before she finished filming the recent Star Wars trilogy and director JJ Abrams used footage from The Force Awakens for The Rise Of Skywalker.
The star’s mother and fellow Hollywood actress Debbie Reynolds died a day after her daughter on December 28, at the age of 84.
Fisher was 19 when she was cast in the role that defined her career, opposite Hamill and Harrison Ford in Star Wars.
Her mother was the same age when she appeared in Singin’ In The Rain opposite Gene Kelly.
