When Carrie Fisher makes her last appearance as Leia in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, an alien inspired by her beloved dog Gary will be onscreen beside her. Eagle-eyed fans spotted the creature in the background of new photos from the movie that were featured in Empire Magazine. “Can you confirm this cute little creature is #SpaceGary in #TheLastJedi?” someone tweeted. Director Rian Johnson confirmed the new character by tweeting, “YES! Wow, good eyes.” Fisher, who died on December 27 last year, was incredibly close with her canine companion and regularly brought him along on the red carpet.
