The letter read: 'As far back as I can remember, my mom and I have been Disney fanatics.
"We went to Disneyland so much that I now realize that she might have even loved it more than I did", Billie wrote. Iger read out a letter from her daughter, the actress Billie Lourd, who is now filming the FX series "American Horror Story".
Her late mother Carrie Fisher was honored with the Disney Legends Award on Friday at the D23 Legends Awards in Anaheim, California.
To hear Lourd say that Fisher's dream of becoming a Disney princess had finally come true was beyond flawless. The 94-year-old Marvel comic book icon was the only award recipient who actually got to meet Walt Disney.
Earlier this year, Fisher was honored at Star Wars Celebration, an event which was attended by some of the most integral members of the Star Wars family.
"We were like siblings, the good and the bad". We'd have huge fights and not speak to one another. Lourd went on to explain that for Fisher becoming a Disney Legend was nearly as good as being a Disney Princess.
Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the space epic, also remembered Fisher during his acceptance speech, Associated Press reports. "I know if she was here this morning, she would have flipped me the bird at least twice already". And what a great thrill it was to come back on The Force Awakens  at that time in our lives. Thank you again, and may the force be with you always, ' Bob Iger read Billie's emotional words. "There was a comfort level with each other".
Other notable people who became Disney Legends included Disneyland ride creator Wayne Jackson and theater and film director Julie Taymor.
