In a new essay for Time magazine, Billie Lourd writes about her experience on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

"Due to this careful digital patchwork that nonetheless leaves Fisher's full human performance untouched, Leia's integration into the film is so complete, she physically interacts with some of the other characters in The Rise of Skywalker". "One of the last times we spoke on the phone, she talked about how excited she was that the next movie in the trilogy was going to be Leia's movie", Lourd writes. They grabbed every frame and analyzed it and then reverse-engineered it and [got] it into the story the right way. He's also thrilled that she'll have the opportunity to impact the "Star Wars" fan base from beyond the grave.

The idea of Leia being a Jedi Warrior would have fitted well within the movie. So she watched the film and quickly "realized no one is, or ever will be, as hot or as cool as Princess F***ing Leia". It implies that Luke trained her, although we never got to see it. It's kind of magical.

"I grew up with three parents: a mom, a dad and Princess Leia", Lourd said her article.

"The truth is that J.J. Abrams was great mates with Carrie..." "She had really come to grips with who Princess Leia was", Todd says. "Watching the amount of joy it brought to people when she hugged them or threw glitter in their faces was incredible to witness". That's according to no less an authority than Fisher's real-life brother, Todd Fisher, who filled us in on what the plan was for his sister's iconic character prior to her sudden death in December 2016.

The U.S. military's Central Command later wrote on Twitter that America had no drone in the area of the reported shootdown. The unmanned aircraft was downed over Iranian territory with domestically manufactured Mersad surface-to-air missiles.

Fans will get to witness Carrie's last hurrah when "The Rise of Skywalker" hits theaters December 20.

The Rise of Skywalker, which she says left her "speechless".

It was only when boys began telling her they "fantasised about her mother" in middle school, when she finally watched Star Wars - which catapulted into her own interest in acting, which she first tried to play down because Carrie initially wasn't too keen on her pursuing a career in Hollywood.

Now, Lourd is opening up about her relationship with her late mom and Leia's legacy in an emotional essay written for Time. In The Force Awakens, Lourd appeared as Lieutenant Connix, a member of the Resistance serving under the command of General Leia.

Lourd said she can't wait to have one more film to one day show her kids of "Mommy and Grandma" together. Carrie Fisher is Princess Leia.
