Now that Star Wars episode 9 has been released, many fans are reflecting on the past films in the series and the stars who made the series what it is today, one of these stars is one of the most important ones, Carrie Fisher who passed away in December of 2016.
Her brother, Todd Fisher, was nervous to see the film after hearing how emotional scenes with her sister were going to get. Yet he did not expect it to get so much more emotional outside of the theater. Todd revealed recently in an article with Page Six, that he had found an after-death note from his late sister. It reads:
“I am dead. How are you? I’ll see you soon … I would call and tell you what this is like, but there is no reception up here. Cut. New scene, new setup, new heavenly location. I have finally got the part that I have been rehearsing for all my life. God gave me the part. This is the end of the road I have been touring on all my life.”
Todd claims that he found the note after rummaging through some his mother’s (Debbie Reynolds, who passed away a day after Carrie) belongings. He states that he knows Carrie’s writing inside and out and that this note was definitely written by Carrie.
“Either it was something Carrie wrote long ago because she was doing a story on death, or it just materialized from beyond. She was writing as if she was dead and what it was like,” he continued. “It just blew my mind. I thought, ‘Wow, why am I finding this right now?’”
It must have been immensely emotional finding that note, especially around the time of Carrie’s last film’s release.
