Carrie Fisher's Star Wars Celebration Tribute Will Give You All the Feels

You can't celebrate the 40-year legacy of "Star Wars" without acknowledging Carrie Fisher.

George Lucas, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, and Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, came out for the 40th anniversary Star Wars Celebration panel in Orlando Thursday to pay tribute to the late actress, who passed away in December 2016.

"I've said many times now that she really is a modern woman, and she isn't just a woman that you put guys clothes on her and she becomes a hero," a choked-up Lucas said. "She was a princess, she was a senator, she played a part that was very smart." He added, "She was the boss; it was her role."

Lucas explained that he wanted someone young to play the role of Princess Leia, and Fisher dazzled the "Star Wars" creator with her strength, smarts, humor, and her bold and tough personality.

"There really wasn't much of a question," Lucas revealed. "They're one in a billion, and for this particular part, she was absolutely perfect."

Even though "she wore a dress through the whole thing," Lucas called her "the toughest one of the group."

"She'll always be the princess who took command and never backed down -- she never was in jeopardy, she was always helping the other guys get out of the messes they created," he concluded. "We'll all love her forever and ever."

For Kennedy, "there was no greater honor" than working with Fisher. "She will be remembered forever, even by those who are not old enough to say the words 'May the Force be with you.'" Watch the video tribute below:Perhaps the most emotional moment was when Lourd, dressed as in a very Leia-esque white dress, took center stage. She recalled of her mother: "She was imperfect in many ways but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect."

"My mom, like Leia, was never afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable. But not me and not you. That was why she loved you, because you accepted and embraced all of her -- the strong soldier of a woman she was, and also the vulnerable side of her, who also openly fought her own dark side."

As she paused occasionally to compose herself, she added: "In our world, 'Star Wars' ultimately became our religion, our family, and our way of life, and I wanted to be here with all of you because I know that many of you feel the same way."

Fans stood up in applause as Lourd finished by reciting Leia's famous plea to Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Fans held back tears as the panel concluded, first with a video montage of behind-the-scenes footage of Fisher, intercut with clips from various interviews and convention appearances.

The panel ended with a surprise appearance by "Star Wars" composer John Williams leading the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra in a live performance of "Leia's Theme."

A Giant Friendly Octopus Forms an Immersive Playground for Children in Shenzhen

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman (who previously produced this oversized bunny in Taiwan) has unveiled his newest large-scale animal design, this time with the function of a playscape for Vanke Group's One City development in the centre of Yantian, Shenzhen. The playground is designed within the eight legs and head of an octopus, a piece that is named after the mythological sea creature Kracken despite its friendly appearance.

The octopus was designed alongside the team at UAP, which helped Hofman bring his imaginative work to life, and plays off of the history of the area which previously housed a battleship in its harbor. The Kracken is now docked as a place for imaginative play, rather than attacking other sailing vessels at sea. (via Designboom)

I was just thinking how cool it would be to turn my two couches into some kind of mega comfy living room nest and then I remembered I live alone and there is literally nothing that can stop me from doing this.
