The Star Wars Celebration in Orlando kicked things off today with a "40 Years of Star Wars" panel, which was highlighted with a heart-wrenching tribute to the late Carrie Fisher.

The video was presented by Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, and featured appearances from cast and crew members from the original Star Wars trilogy and the new films.

Get the tissue ready.

This year’s Star Wars Celebration runs from April 13-16 at the Orange County Convention Center.
