On Thursday, Fisher, who died in 2016, joins Star Wars stars Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill at the Hollywood tourist attraction.

LOS ANGELES — Carrie Fisher will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on May Fourth in honor of one of the most beloved faces of the Star Wars franchise.

On Thursday, Fisher is who died in 2016 — along with Star Wars co-stars Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill in the Hollywood tourist attraction, which recognizes landmarks from the film, television, music and other entertainment industries. The all-star trio is located in the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard, not far from where the original movie debuted in 1977.

Fisher played Leia Organa, who over the course of six films has transformed from a princess to a general who leads the forces of good against oppressive regimes seeking to control a galaxy far, far away. Billie Lourd will accept the star on behalf of her mother.

Fans campaigned for a long time for her to receive a star on the Walk of Fame. The honor comes on May the Fourth, essentially the official holiday for Star Wars fans, a play on the line Fisher often said in the movies: “May the Force be with you.”

Devotees around the world are celebrating with a variety of tributes, and retailers are holding special sales on Star Wars merchandise.

The induction ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. PT live streaming Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

Fisher will receive the 2,754th star on the Walk of Fame. Ford received his star in 2003, and Hamill was honored in 2018.

Stars on the Walk of Fame are awarded to artists who have been nominated, and it now takes $75,000 to create and maintain a star.
