Carrie Fisher's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star 'Too Late' Say Fans

Carrie Fisher is to be honored with a posthumous Hollywood Walk of Fame Star and fans say it's about time.

The late Star Wars legend will be joined by 38 new honorees for 2022 who have been selected by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

Fisher passed away in 2016 and there have long been calls for her to get her own star, with Mark Hamill petitioning the committee on her behalf.

The Luke Skywalker actor even suggested replacing Donald Trump's star with one for Fisher back in 2018.

While actor William Shatner tweeted that same year: "Hey @starwars is it true that @carrieffisher does not have a star on the walk of fame? If it is what are we going to do about it?"

Hollywood Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez revealed Fisher had not been nominated for a star while she was alive in a 2017 interview with Today and that posthumous awards require a five-year waiting period.

Many people are expressing disbelief that Fisher, Princess Leia herself, was not already on the Walk of Fame

"Carrie Fisher didn't already have a 'star'????" tweeted Elie Mystal. "They didn't correct this problem while she was still alive?????????? I need to go back to reading Supreme Court cases. Celebrity news is way more opaque and confusing."

One fan posted: "CARRIE FISHER, our Princess Leia, is getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Would have been nicer if this happened while she was still with us but perhaps this will bring some comfort to her family. May the Force Be with Her. Always!"

"The Selection Panel, made up of fellow Walk of Famers, hand-picks a group of honorees each year that represent various genres of the entertainment world," said selection panel chair and Walk of Famer Ellen K in a statement.

"The Panel did an amazing job choosing these very talented people. We can't wait to see each honoree's reaction as they realize that they are becoming a part of Hollywood's history with the unveiling of their star on the world's most famous walkway!"
