The tone of the entire event celebrated the fact that generations have grown up with Star Wars, including anecdotes from George Lucas about how these films and stories have inspired a whole new generation of filmmakers who are creating the newest Star Wars productions.

"My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began", Lourd said onstage. It wasn't until a few years ago, when I saw Rey in Episode VII: The Force Awakens, that I really understood the full impact of the franchise - and fell in love with its not-so-subtle girl-power message. "For this particular part, it was absolutely ideal ... she wore a dress through the whole thing, but she was the toughest in the group". "She will be remembered forever, even by those who are not yet old enough to say 'May the force be with you, '" she said.

The best part of the panel was that, at the end of the video, legendary composer John Williams made an appearance to play Princess Leia's theme for fans in attendance. For this particular part, it was absolutely flawless because she could hold her own against [the guys].

Fans held back tears as the panel concluded, first with a video montage of behind-the-scenes footage of Fisher, intercut with clips from various interviews and convention appearances.
