Star Wars' Carrie Fisher Fittingly Earns Hollywood Walk-Of-Fame Star On May The 4th

The last of the trio of stars in the original "Star Wars" trilogy is finally getting her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The late Carrie Fisher will receive her Hollywood star on Thursday, May 4, appropriately the date of "Star Wars" fans' cultural holiday May the Fourth. The date has sparked the annual fan phrase, "May the Fourth be with You" — a play on words of the iconic "Star Wars" line, "May the Force be with You."

According to Time, Fisher's daughter and "Star Wars" sequel trilogy co-star, Billie Lourd, will be accepting her late mother's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at the 6,800 block of Hollywood Boulevard. The location of Fisher's star is not too far away from the theater where the first "Star Wars" film debuted in limited release on May 25, 1977.

Fisher, of course, played Princess Leia Organa in the original "Star Wars" film trilogy from 1977 to 1983 and reprised the role in the "Star Wars" sequel trilogy from starting 2015's "The Force Awakens." Fisher passed away on December 27, 2016, at age 60. Although she completed her work on the second "Star Wars" sequel trilogy film, 2017's "The Last Jedi," footage she shot for the film, along with some digital effects, allowed for the late Fisher to appear in 2019's "The Rise of Skywalker."

Princess Leia was also recreated digitally for short but pivotal return at the conclusion of 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," which was accompanied by brief dialogue by Fisher.

Fisher's star is the 2,754th star to be installed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Mark Hamill pays tribute to Fisher ahead of the Walk of Fame

With the Hollywood Star honor, Carrie Fisher joins her "Star Wars" co-leads Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo). Ford was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2003, while Hamill was celebrated with his star on the famed stretch in 2018. The address for Fisher's star is 6840 Hollywood Blvd., just a few steps down from Hamill's star at 6834 Hollywood Blvd. Ford's star is located on 6667 Hollywood Blvd.

In an April 24 tweet posted by Hamill about the pending Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, the actor honored his former co-star Fisher by simply stating, "Long overdue & so well-deserved."

Hamill also discussed his memories of Fisher with Variety, and admitted that nearly seven years after her death, he still struggles with the fact that she's no longer in the present. "It's hard to think of her in the past tense," Hamill told the trade publication. "There are people that you encounter in life that are so vibrant and make such a profound impact on you, they stay with you forever. Had she only done Princess Leia, that would be enough ... She really was just such an original."

Hamill's words almost seem to echo what Luke said to Leia in their emotional last meeting in "The Last Jedi," where he tells her, "No one's ever really gone."
