Harrison Ford visit, Fisher tribute launch Star Wars event

27, but her legacy as Princess Leia and the impact she made on people connected to the "Star Wars" franchise continue to live on.

While they'll be loaded with commonplace characters, the focal figures are Princess Leia from the first set, Padmé Amidala from the prequels, and Rey from The Force Awakens, Rogue One's Jyn Erso, and the trio from the latest animated Rebels series.

In light of that, Disney and Lucasfilm took the opportunity to pay tribute to Carrie Fisher through a handsome new video that closed the 40 Years of Star Wars panel. She also passed along the three most important things she learned from her mother - chief among them, the "You're my only hope" message hologram Leia delivers to Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope.

GameSpot will be at Star Wars Celebration all weekend, so keep checking back for more coverage of the panels and events.
