Long before her death at the end of last year, Carrie Fisher had a final wish from her Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford: that he would sing at the Oscars during the In Memoriam segment of the awards show.
“I asked him [at a party] if he would be in my death reel, and if he would sing,” she said in an interview with Rebel Force Radio, that was recently unearthed. “It’s just something I want. So, I figured they’ll bring out, depending on when it happens, there’s a lot of people they can bring out. He’s going to sing ‘Melancholy Wookiee’.”
No plans for a specific tribute have been disclosed by the Academy. The Oscars will air February 26.
