Carrie Fisher, who portrayed Leia Organa, passed away on December 27, 2016 after she suffered a heart attack on a flight to Los Angeles from London.

Since 1977, the renowned movie franchise has travelled through many galaxies. This design is a must-have for any "Star Wars" fan, offering up another hyper-realistic figure to your collection. The third picture Hamill posted is a drawing of Fisher humorously dressed as a princess, holding her beloved dog Gary while flipping the bird.

As amusing as Lourd's post is, it's also very emotional, and no doubt probably one of the most hard things the third-generation actress has ever written. "I think being pushed out of your comfort zone is a good thing, because if I was just another benevolent Jedi training young Padawans, we've seen it!"

Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in "Star Trek", posted a photograph with Fisher on Twitter Wednesday.

During an interview back in 2015, Fisher touched on her thoughts about reprising her role as the princess turned general and what it meant to her.

"We are extremely grateful to Lucasfilm and the Star Wars team for their tremendous generosity in agreeing to make this wonderful behind-the-scenes film, to help us promote the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland".

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in theaters now.

"I thought it was a fantastic script", Fisher said, before admitting that no one could have guessed the film's eventual popularity. "I love you times infinity", she continued. "That's the beauty of it - she lives forever in a sense".

Despite her struggles, she remained as engaging and spirited as ever, and fans were delighted to see her return as Leia alongside Hamill, Ford and the rest of the original cast for The Force Awakens.

Carrie Fisher will always be with her Star Wars costar Mark Hamill.
