When the initial trailer for the upcoming Last Jedi film dropped Monday, millions of Star Wars fans across the globe couldn’t click fast enough. Not only was it the long-anticipated sequel to The Force Awakens, but the final featured role for beloved American actress Carrie Fisher.
Of course one pup wanted to see his mom on the screen once again.
That would be Gary, Carrie Fisher’s prized French bulldog. Posted to Gary’s official Instagram page, the caption reads, “Just watched the new trailer of The Last Jedi and my mom looks more beautiful than ever.”
Well-known for speaking out against stigma surrounding mental illness, Fisher adopted Gary as a therapy dog in her battle against bipolar disorder. But as she spoke in interviews, it’s obvious how close the two had become.
“Gary is mental also. My mother says Gary is a hooligan. Gary is like my heart,” Fisher told the Herald Tribune back in 2015. “Gary is very devoted to me and that calms me down. He’s anxious when he’s away from me.”
Once Fisher passed in 2016, her assistant Corby McCoin took in Gary. The two seem to be getting along just fine.
