We love her, she knows. The Star Wars 40th anniversary celebration wouldn’t be complete without a proper good-bye to the galaxy’s favorite princess turned general, Carrie Fisher as Leia. Pulled together from set footage, interview outtakes, and the Force Awakens press tour, the series delivered a moving homage to Fisher, who died after a sudden heart attack in December.
