Now, it looks like the pooch followed her right into a galaxy far, far away with a role in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which was filmed before her death last year at the age of 60.
Clair Henry of fan site Fantha Tracks spotted a Gary-like alien in a still and asked “Episode VIII” director Rian Johnson on Twitter:
YES! Wow, good eyes.— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) December 6, 2017
Fisher, who suffered from bipolar disorder, said the ever-present pooch was her therapy dog.
“Gary is like my heart. Gary is very devoted to me and that calms me down,” Fisher told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune in 2013. “He’s anxious when he’s away from me.”
Fisher’s assistant, Corby McCoin, adopted Gary after her death, but clearly, the pup still misses “mom” as a photo released in October showed.
