Although I didn't attend Star Wars Celebration, it was clear from many people online that this was the biggest thing to come out of the convention.
The event was the first Star Wars convention since she died last year at age 60, and day after day, collaborators and castmates took the opportunity to pay tribute to her. And somehow, somewhere in the process, an event dedicated to promoting one of the most valuable entertainment properties in the world became something different — an opportunity for fans to say goodbye.
