Since her death last December, “Star Wars” fans have missed Carrie Fisher every day, but perhaps most especially on May 4, the official “holiday” dedicated to the galaxy far, far away.

To celebrate “May the Fourth,” Fisher’s daughter — and “Star Wars” star in her own right — Billie Lourd, shared a photo of her younger self in the arms of her late mother as Chewbacca trails behind them.

She captioned the adorable throwback Instagram with a couple of emojis and the “May the 4th be with you” hashtag.

Just last month, the 24-year-old paid tribute to her late mother during an appearance at the “Star Wars” Celebration, a four-day fan festival that drew franchise favorites like George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy to Orlando, Florida.

Wearing a custom-made Tom Ford dress inspired by her mother’s iconic Princess Leia outfit, Lourd took the stage and delivered a heartfelt speech about Fisher’s connection to the series’ fandom.

“My mom, like Leia, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable, but not me and not you,” she said. “That was why she loved you, because you accepted and embraced all of her.”
