Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds’ public memorial is today at 1 p.m. PST (or 4 p.m. Eastern.) You can watch a live stream of the memorial above. The video will begin at 1 p.m. PST once the memorial service starts. (If you don’t see anything but a black box, hover over the video or click on it to get the livestream waiting video — a collage series — to appear.) If for any reason the stream stops working, we will update this post with an embedded video that does work or you can watch the live stream here.
The mother and daughter died within 24 hours of each other in December. Some said that Reynolds died of a broken heart.
The memorial service will take place at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles. Highlights of the memorial service will include a new song that James Blunt wrote just for Fisher and Reynolds’ memorial. He won’t be there in person, but the song will be featured along with a special music video.
Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, will attend but she won’t have an active role because her mother and grandmother’s deaths have been so hard on her, USA Today reported.
You’ll also see home movies and photos during the memorial. And Fisher’s dog, Gary, will be there, along with Lourd’s dog, Tina. Fisher’s pet parrot, Archie, will also make an appearance. Expect to also see performances by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. Star Wars outfits and memorabilia will be on display, although Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford could not attend due to other engagements they were required to attend.
