During the event, Lourd gave a handsome speech in memory of Fisher and spoke of how important Star Wars and Princess Leia were to her life. Of Fisher often calling herself the "custodian of Leia", Lucas said: "She was that character: she was very smart, very amusing, very bold, very tough".
George added that she did a lot to steer the production.
Lourd spoke about how important the "Star Wars" fan base was to her mother.
In her first red carpet appearance since the death of Carrie Fisher, Billie Lourd paid tribute to her late mother in a touching way.
The tribute video had revealed that Fisher still memorized Princess Leia's message to Obi-Wan in A New Hope, and her daughter Billie had apparently memorized the dialogue as well. She went from being an unknown actress, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, to Princess Leia - a character synonymous with the idea of the ultimate strong woman. "She loved you. She loved these movies". I feel like that's what's happened with Carrie. My mom, like Leia, wasn't ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable, but not me and not you.
"It was enormously appealing and she was so smart.When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure".
When she surrounded herself with fans at celebrations like this, she never felt more at home.
Every moment was iconic.
After reciting the monolog word-for-word, Lourd continued, "Secondly she taught me that if life isn't amusing then it's just true, and that is unacceptable". "She taught me by her own example, that the most evolved person is seemingly a contradiction - they are both the strongest and the most vulnerable person in the room", Billie - who appeared alongside her mom in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens - said.
