I will always remember Carrie Fisher for that time she went to the Force Awakens premiere and made Adam Driver carry her dopey-looking dog the whole time. And Adam Driver was just like “Well, I guess this is my life now,” because clearly there was nothing he or anyone else could do about it, and Carrie Fisher was well past the point in her life where she gave a shit about what anybody else thought about anything. I was genuinely inspired by this moment. Rest in peace, weird space mom.

film in the Star Wars saga that focuses on variety of unusual beings

November 21, 1983.
