The Fourth is definitely with Carrie Fisher.

It's Star Wars day and the fandom is certainly missing Carrie Fisher, but none more so than her own daughter Billie Lourd.

On Thursday, May the Fourth, the Scream Queens actress paid tribute to her momma with a beautiful post on Instagram by sharing a picture of her as a kid in the late starlet's arms — with Chewbacca standing behind them.

Aww!

Todd Fisher Encourages Kids With Mental Illnesses To Use Carrie Fisher As A 'Role Model'

Carrie Fisher

Todd Fisher continues to carry out his sister's legacy.

In honor of National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day, Debbie Reynolds' son partnered with the Child Mind Institute's new #MyYoungerSelf social media campaign to tell the story of Carrie Fisher's battle with bipolar disorder.

The 59-year-old opened up about what it was like for the late Star Wars actress growing up with a mental illness:

"When Carrie and I were growing up, we knew there was something going on with her. Her behavior got more and more extreme, everything seemed to be more difficult for her. She was struggling through something and was very alone. All she had was the support of her family."

Eventually, Billie Lourd's mother was able to receive the medical help she needed — which led to all the incredible work she was able to accomplish throughout her long career.

Todd ended the inspiring video by encouraging children who may face similar obstacles to seek treatment:

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Officially Be Carrie Fisher's Final Appearance As Leia

| Filed under: Film FlickersSad SadCarrie FisherStar Wars

Star Wars Celebration in Orlando should have been a weekend of pure joy; unfortunately everyone is still reeling from the loss of Carrie Fisher.

But while the fans are mourning, the filmmakers have been scrambling.

Carrie's part in The Last Jedi (above) was already completed at the time of her death, and spoiler alert — her character was meant to have a large part in the next installment as well.

Much ado was made of the possibility that Princess General Leia would live on digitally, thanks to the use of posthumous character recreation in Rogue One and to comments from those close to the project.

But now we have definitive word from the very top. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy herself says Leia will not return in the Episode IX.

Writer-director Colin Trevorrow and co-writer Derek Connelly, along with the rest of the Lucasfilm braintrust, had to work hard to figure out how to continue the saga without one of its leaders. Kennedy told EW they threw out the story they had and "pretty much started over." No old footage will be used. No digital recreation. Leia will not be part of Episode IX.

But now at last, Kennedy says, they've found a way to explain her absence, though of course, we'll have to wait until we see how Episode VIII ends before they can share any part of it with the fans.

Are YOU happy they're letting Leia go??

The 24-year-old received a standing ovation as she stood there in a dress specifically made in collaboration with Tom Ford to pay homage to Carrie's iconic white Princess Leia gown.

So awesome! Loves it!

Addressing the large crowd, Billie said:

"My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began. She went from being an unknown actress, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, to Princess Leia…My mom, like Leia, was never afraid to speak her mind…She loved you. She loved these movies. And she loved this force called Leia. In our world, Star Wars became a religion and a way of life. I wanted to be here with you because I know you feel the same way."

Nothing comes between Princess Leia and her frap… not even poop on a stick!

At least that's according to the brilliant minds behind the Bad Lip Reading of Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

The clip shows Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Adam Driver in a galaxy far, far, more hilarious.
