"It drove me insane, I wanted that book so badly". "Every day, Disney, ABC 7 let me be me".

"When they told me, I said: 'Are you sure they're not wanting Mark Harmon or Jon Hamm or even Dorothy Hamill?'" he said. I loved Walt Disney so much. He was more than a man, he was an inspiration. "To think that today I am standing here in the House of Disney Legends, I thank you all", Lee said. "She certainly left a mark on the world, and on our company".

Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, attended the event while wearing a white gown that honored Fisher's wardrobe from the first film.

Disney chief Bob Iger spoke of her "talent, wit and friendship" and decribed Fisher's final Star Wars performance as "legendary".

"Were fortunate to have worked with her".

The Disney Legends ceremony has been a staple of D23 and dates back to 1987.

"I have been a Disney fan as long as I can remember. I was so obsessed with Ariel that I wanted to change my name", Lourd wrote.

"I wish I could be there to accept this award on her behalf, but unfortunately, I am now working on "American Horror Story". The good and the bad!", he said while remembering Fisher.
