What would it take to get Carrie Fisher a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?


Carrie Fisher should get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We look at what it would take to make that happen.

Carrie Fisher’s legacy will stand for a long time. As one of the stars of the original Star Wars trilogy, Fisher brought to life a galaxy fans loved for decades.

Her star power is immeasurable. So when Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill recently tweeted about Fisher getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it wasn’t a matter of should she have it, but how can she get one.

There are certain criteria to getting a star on the Walk of Fame. Hamill recently had his placed, and Harrison Ford has had one on Hollywood Boulevard for quite some time. Fisher is the lone actor of the three principle cast members from Star Wars now without a star.

More than 2,500 celebrities have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, according to Time. The criteria has been held a secret, but it seems like Time got to the bottom of it, and there’s no reason Fisher shouldn’t get a star based on what it takes.

There are about few boxes to check to get a star:

1. Produce something iconic – This seems like a no-brainer when it comes to Carrie Fisher. She was in five Star Wars films (not counting her cameo in Rogue One). It really doesn’t get more iconic than that.

Having said that, she also appeared in dozens of other films and television shows.

2. Fork over $40,000 – Yes, it does take a “sponsorship fee” to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Although, it’s not unheard of for fans to raise money in the name of a celeb to get one.

In Fisher’s case, it certainly seems as though Star Wars fans around the world might be willing to donate to get her legacy etched into the tourist attraction.

3. Have a party – While Carrie Fisher couldn’t be there (which the selection committee seems to like), there is not doubt Star Wars fans, her co-stars and family would attend to make it a celebration of her life.

When Hamill received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Harrison Ford gave a speech at the attraction. You really think either one of them wouldn’t show up for Fisher?

Supposedly, the record amount of people attending one of the events is just over 1,000. Star Wars fans would do better than that with a little advanced notice.

Even if it’s not about sentimentality, and a huge marketing ploy – that’s what many of the stars are anyway – getting Fisher a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame right before Star Wars Episode IX comes out seems like a fitting tribute to a woman who played one of the most iconic characters in movie history.
