On Friday, amid the USA release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Billie Lourd shared a touching photo of her and late mother Carrie Fisher from the 2015 premiere of The Force Awakens.

Brought along with Fisher's former assistant, Corby McCoin, to a recent screening in L.A. of the much-anticipated film, Gary reportedly got emotional every time Leia appeared on screen, according to The Independent.

It's a reaction that many Star Wars fans, or any fans of Carrie Fisher, will also likely share when they gather in theaters to watch the film too.

A tweet from an ABC reporter read: "The late @carrieffisher's dog Gary just watched #TheLastJedi!"

It was fitting that one of the fans present at a Thursday screening for the blockbuster film was perhaps Fisher's closest companion: Gary, her French bulldog.

"Before working with Carrie, before understanding these type of conditions, it's hard to explain".

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" gets the hook in the audience quickly, with battle scenes and lots of hostility intrigue immediately.

"What can I say?" We can only wait and see how it comes to its final conclusion in 2019's Episode IX. Gary originally belonged to Fisher's 25-year-old daughter, Billie Lourd.

Reflecting on her enormous losses last Christmas - that saw grandma Debbie Reynolds die a day after her mum died on December 27 - Billie has described the grief as "surreal". "So we have a really handsome, complete performance from her".
