The year 2016 was a hard year for the "Star Wars" family. First, R2-D2 performer Kenny Baker passed away in August. Then, days after Christmas, Carrie Fisher succumbed following a sudden heart attack, leaving millions mourning the actress, writer, and activist they had first come to know as the unforgettable Princess Leia. These icons, like their "Star Wars" comrades, have been woven into the cultural fabric of our lives since 1977, as familiar to us as any childhood fairy tale. Join us as we take a look back at some of the brilliant stars, gone too soon, whose talents were responsible for bringing us to a galaxy far, far away.
