Fisher's daughter pens touching speech for late mum

Fisher's daughter pens touching speech for late mum

Although Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd couldn't attend the ceremony, she wrote a ideal tribute to her mother's career and love of Disney in general.

Asked by Yahoo Movies what her favorite Disney movie is, the View host and EGOT victor deferred picking favorites and instead brought up Song of the South, the 1946 Walt Disney-produced live-action/animated film that has remained unreleased for decades due to its racially insensitive portrayal of African Americans in the Reconstruction Era.

The "Star Wars" actor remembers the late Carrie Fisher as he accepts his Disney Legends award. Read by Iger, Lourd wrote, about going to Disneyland so often that she now is starting to realize that her mom may have loved going to the famous theme park more than she did. I was so obsessed with Ariel that I wanted to change my name. I loved her and we were like siblings. "I know if she was here today, she would have flipped me the bird at least twice already".

'Becoming part of the Disney family was truly an fantastic moment for her.

I'm beyond grateful to Mr. Iger and everyone at Disney for this incredible honor. Thank you."Undoubtedly, Princess Leia will continue to live on in the Disney Legends hall of fame. We'd have huge fights - 'You're such a phony!' - but we loved each other".

Mark Hamill, who worked with Carrie on The Force Awakens, also won a Disney Legends Award and spoke about her in his acceptance speech. There's a comfort level with each other.

Aside from Mark and Carrie, other awardees this year include Stan Lee, Oprah, director Gary Marshall, Marvel artist Jack Kirby, Disney animator Clyde Geronimi, Disney artist Manuel Gonzales, and Imagineer Wayne Jackson.
