Carrie Fisher’s Dog Gary Is (Kind of) in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

Before Carrie Fisher tragically passed away last December, she was often seen on the red carpet with her beloved French bulldog, Gary. The two shared a bond that fans adored. In celebration of that bond, director Rian Johnson added a tiny, touching nod to Gary in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, to honor the woman who played Princess Leia and to recognize her love of her furry friend.

It’s a detail that most people might have understandably overlooked, but one keen-eyed fan happened to notice it in a recently released still from the upcoming film.

In the still, John Boyega and Kelly Marie Tran stand facing each other in the foreground of what appears to be a casino of some sort. Directly behind them is another patron. There’s nothing especially remarkable about that figure alone (other than its non-human form, natch), but there is something interesting about what it’s holding.

Check out the little creature in the patron’s arms. Yep, that appears to be an alien version of Gary!

In order to confirm this adorable suspicion, Twitter user @irishgeekgirl tweeted at Rian Johnson. He replied with an enthusiastic, “YES! Wow, good eyes.”

While it’s unclear if Space Gary shares any scenes with Fisher (whose character is now known as the esteemed General Organa), we have no doubt that the actress’s fans will love this heartfelt addition to the already meaningful movie.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit theaters on December 15, 2017, so be sure to get your lightsabers ready and prep yourself for a Space Gary spotting!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.
