Hamill’s accompanying Twitter message was even more heartwarming: “So much like her mother in so many ways- it was almost as if we were cuddling our Princess again!”

The “Star Wars Celebration” kicked off on Thursday, inviting fans to celebrate the famous series and the 40 years since “A New Hope” hit theaters.
Lourd also attended the Carrie Fisher tribute on Thursday. The tribute video showed how the actress freely quipped about the undying celebrity status “Star Wars” had both blessed and cursed her with and how, even nearly 40 years later, she could still recite with ease the plea for help Leia gave to Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) through R2-D2 in Lucas’ original 1977 movie.
Fisher, who reprised her role as Princess Leia for 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” died Dec. 27, days after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
The actress had wrapped her scenes for the eighth film in the franchise before her death.
