It’s been nearly half a year since Princess Leia actress Carrie Fisher passed away after her massive heart attack, and she has been sorely missed by the millions of fans she had and those who knew her personally. A new report shows that Fisher really did care about Leia the same way that many fans did, as her home features a considerable amount of Leia merchandise.
ABC News got a closer look inside Carrie Fisher’s home, which features a number of oddities and Star Wars merchandise – particularly those relating to the character that she brought to life. One such bit of Star Wars memorabilia was the director’s seat that she got for Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, which was one of the Star Wars movies that she doctored the script to. Many of the items that she owned – along with the items that her mother and next-door neighbor, Debbie Reynolds, had – will be put up for auction this September.
Those curious about getting a closer look at Carrie Fisher’s estate can view the HBO documentary Bright Lights, which covers Fisher’s life in great detail.
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi will rise on December 15, 2017.
