Carrie Fisher's Beloved French Bulldog Gary Hits the Star Wars Celebration
Fisher's service dog now lives with her former assistant
Gary Fisher is back and ready to face off with BB-8, once again.
The french bulldog – Carrie Fisher‘s longtime companion – is in Orlando for the annual Star Wars Celebration Day.
Gary’s arrival in Florida was announced on his Instagram account, with the message, “Hello Orlando.”
Ahead of Friday’s festivities, Gary enjoyed a night out with some human friends in the city.
“The gangs all together,” the Instagram post read. “See everyone tomorrow at celebration.”
As Fisher’s constant travel buddy, Gary became a celebrity in his own right, drawing headlines for his doggy antics at the premiere of The Force Awakens in 2015.
Gushing of her pal to The Herald Tribune in 2015, Fisher said, “Gary is like my heart. Gary is very devoted to me and that calms me down. He’s anxious when he’s away from me.”
He was by Fisher’s side when she went into cardiac arrest aboard a flight from London to Los Angeles on Dec. 23 of last year, and remained with her at the hospital, where she died four days later at the age of 60.
Wearing a custom white Tom Ford dress modeled after Fisher’s iconic costume, Lourd told fans, “My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began.”

“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, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable.”
