Carrie Fisher’s daughter made a beautiful and badass tribute to her late mother, and it’s emotional as hell

The Last Jedi may have Star Wars fans and audience members divided, but one thing that everyone can agree upon is that the film brings about a renewed sense of loss surrounding the death of Carrie Fisher โ€” a rebel princess to the very end.

December 27 marked the one year anniversary of Fisher’s death, and friends and fans alike used the occasion to commemorate the late writer and actress. However, Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, went above and beyond in honoring her mother’s memory.

Lourd posted Instagram photos of a recent, magical journey she took in honor of Fisher: venturing to Norway to see the Northern Lights.

Apparently, Fisher had always wanted to see the stunning spectacle, but never had the opportunity while she was alive.

Lourd’s Instagram caption reads:

I love you times infinity. ๐ŸŒœ๐Ÿ‘™๐ŸŒ›

The caption also contains a little coded emoji message, which, if you look closely, reads, “She drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra.”

In her memoir, Wishful Drinking, this is how Carrie infamously told friends she’d like for newspapers to report on her death.

Something tells me that Carrie would be incredibly proud of this sweet and thoughtful gesture by her daughter. There’s no more fitting a tribute to Princess Leia than such a fantastical cosmic display.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need a tissue.
