ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Several big names in entertainment were hailed as Disney Legends as part of the Disney fan convention D23 on Friday (July 14). The event, which happens every two years, saw Star Wars' Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, actress Whoopi Goldberg, the former Marvel chairman Stan Lee and actress and TV host Oprah Winfrey get honored. On the press line, Hamill spoke about how his Star Wars co-star would have reacted to getting the award and how he hoped her presence in the final of the new trilogy would be treated after Fisher died in December 2016. Other notable people who became Disney Legends included Disneyland ride creator Wayne Jackson and theater and film director Julie Taymor.
