Lourd added this was an "ultimate dream" of her mother.

However, because of her busy schedule, Lourd was not able to attend the Awards Show, and the letter ended up being read by Disney chairman Bob Iger.

The late Carrie Fisher, Stan Lee and Whoopi Goldberg were officially named Disney Legends at the 2017 D23 Expo in California on Friday (14Jul17).

"I'm trying to find a way to get people to start having conservations about bringing Song of the South back", she said of the film, which Disney has kept locked in its vault, refusing to issue either digitally or on disc.

"We all miss her talent, her wit and her friendship", he said to the crowd at the biennial celebration of all things Disney. Iger even teased the newly announced Star Wars Lands, which will be opening in 2019 so that "you can experience life in the Star Wars universe". Among her many voiceover credits, Goldberg has also voiced roles for Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, Japanese animated feature Captain Planet and the Planeteers, and the classic 1995 series Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist.
