Eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice him.
Carrie Fisher’s much-loved dog Gary will have a cameo in the upcoming movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The late actress’ beloved French Bulldog was frequently seen at her side – both on-set and at film premieres – before her untimely death in 2016.
And now it turns out that he’s become a four-legged film star in his own right.
Eagled-eyed fans first spotted what they reckoned was Gary in the background of a Last Jedi movie still obtained by Empire Magazine.
The photo shows Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) seemingly having some kind of tense exchange of words.

But in the background, an adorable little critter can be seen watching on in the arms of another other-worldly looking character.
One fan asked the film’s director Rian Johnson if the photo meant that Gary would have a cameo in the upcoming instalment of the franchise.
Clair Henry asked:
YES! Wow, good eyes.

The director was quick to respond:
“YES! Wow, good eyes.”
Gary, the late actress’ therapy dog, now lives with Carrie’s assistant, Corby McCoin, who runs his social media accounts.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out in Irish cinemas on December 14.
