“So much like her mother in so many ways,” the 65-year-old captioned the pic taken at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, with the late Carrie Fisher‘s only child. “It was almost as if we were cuddling our Princess again! #BillieLourd #DejaVuAllOverAgain #SWCO.”

Hamill, Ford and Fisher memorably starred as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia in the first Star Wars trilogy back in the late ’70s and early ’80s before reuniting for 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which also featured Lourd in a small role.
“My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began. She went from being an unknown actress, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, to Princess Leia,” Lourd, 24, told fans in a heartfelt speech at the convention on Thursday.
“She was imperfect in many ways, but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect,” she continued. “My mom, like Leia, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable, but not me and not you. That was why she loved you, because you accepted and embraced all of her.”
Fisher completed filming for the next Star Wars film, The Last Jedi, shortly before her death. The trailer for the eighth installment of the sci-fi franchise, which hits theaters in December, premiered Friday at the Star Wars Celebration before it was shared online. Watch the video above.
