STAR WARS Celebration: Watch Mark Hamill’s Tribute To Carrie Fisher

Break out the Kleenex.

Yesterday afternoon, Mark Hamill's tribute to Carrie Fisher was the big draw at Star Wars Celebration. Fans waited in line for hours to get into this event, and - considering that virtually every mention of Fisher at other panels has drawn tears from the crowd - there was every reason to believe Hamill's one-man tribute would offer a deeply emotional (possibly even cathartic?) experience. 

As they've done with other Star Wars Celebration panels, the good folks at Disney were awesome enough to upload Hamill's entire tribute to YouTube. It is, as you'd expect, an emotional watch, but Hamill leavens the sadness with some truly excellent anecdotes (pay attention for the one about he and Fisher's competing to see who's the best kisser).

This is, in other words, a celebration of the late, great Carrie Fisher, a fitting tribute that perfectly captures the spunky, rebellious, whip-smart, beautiful badass we all grew up watching in a galaxy far, far away (you may still need to keep some Kleenex handy, but that's okay).
