Mark Hamill “won Star Wars”: he is finally honored on Hollywood Boulevard
Mark Hamill indeed received this honor in March 2018, and he has several times publicly wished that his cinema sister would join him on Hollywood Boulevard. When fans had created a star for him, right after Carrie Fisher’s death in December 2016, he shared a photo commenting that she had left too young, “by taking a little of us with her”. Then he tweeted: “Carrie WILL HAVE her star on the Walk of Fame, it’s only a matter of time. The rule is to wait about 5 years for a post-mortem star. Finally, send a letter to the House of Could Hollywood Trade help, by asking them to expedite the process in order to honor her memory at the time of the release of Episode 9? She will always be with us. “
Finally, The Rise of Skywalker was released at the end of 2019 without the tribute being planned on the Walk of Fame. It is not yet known when the ceremony will be planned in honor of Carrie Fisher, the organizers specifying that the date is usually announced ten days before the event.
