Iconic Star Wars BTS Photo Becomes Ornament To Make You Cry

Thanks, Hallmark. I didn't need to cry like this today. The companies 2020 holiday ornaments are out, and as always, there are plenty of Star Wars ones for us collectors to get our hands on. But one in particular stands out, and is a must have addition to your holiday Star Wars tree. There is an iconic behind the scenes photo of Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew on the Bespin set during filming of Empire Strikes Back with Fisher being held up by Mayhew with one arm, with the happiest of looks on her face. It is a great shot, and when Mayhew passed away last year, the photo was posted by everyone, reminding us that Leia and Chewy were together again. Hallmark went ahead and turned this into the sweetest Christmas ornament of all-time, which you can see below.
