    Disney's D23 Legends panel just wrapped up, officially cementing Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill as Disney Legends! Bob Iger spoke on Carrie's behalf, and Hamill appeared to accept his honor. In addition to the fantastic honor bestowed upon them both, there were some interesting takeaway quotes from the event!







    Disney Chairman/CEO Bob Iger took the stage to accept the title of Disney Legend on Carrie Fisher's behalf. The Hollywood Reporter emphasized that it was an emotional moment, which of course was expected:

    The emotional peak found its place when Iger read a letter written by Carrie's daughter Billie Lourd, which included a simple yet sweet quote:

    Although many of us can imagine Fisher accepting this honor with a more colorful tone showcasing her irreverent wit, she always seemed to have her finger on the pulse of when to dial it back and appreciate her status as an icon of not only Star Wars, but Disney as well.





    Mark Hamill was then honored with his Legend status, and Bob Iger pulled no punches in the hype machine for The Last Jedi:

    Now Iger may very well believe this, but it should be noted that the job of a CEO is to make shareholders and consumers happy, so these types of statements should be expected. However, if Bob personally felt Hamill was merely decent in The Last Jedi he may not have said anything at all about his performance. We'll find out in five short months!

    As he always does Hamill removed any level of stuffiness from the room by shining the light on how he always saw Carrie, full of humor and light-heartedness:

    In a very classy move, Hamill was sure to thank the creator and those that brought the once humble space opera to life:

    Are you happy our favorite Star Wars icons have now joined the pantheon of Disney Legends?

    What do you make of Bob Iger's comments about Mark Hamill's work in The Last Jedi? Is it a smart CEO appeasing shareholders and customers or do you think it's an honest opinion of his performance? Both?

    Sound off in the comments and of course in the Cantina!





    You can find me on Twitter @JohnnyHoey to talk about it.
