“I asked him if he would be in my death reel, and if he would sing,” Fisher said. “It’s just something I want.”
She then joked that her song of choice would be "Melancholy Wookiee."
Fisher, who died last month a few days after going into cardiac arrest during a flight from London to Los Angeles at age 60, said she got the idea after watching a tribute for director John Hughes during the Oscars.
“So, I figured they’ll bring out, depending on when it happens, there’s a lot of people they can bring out,” Fisher said.
In Fisher's final memoir, The Princess Diarist, published in November, the actress revealed that she began an affair with the then-33-year-old Ford after a birthday party for George Lucas, and their fling continued for three months while filming the original Star Wars. "I looked over at Harrison. A hero’s face… How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me?" Fisher wrote.
Following her death, Ford offered a heartfelt statement.
"Carrie was one-of-a-kind... brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless," he said in a statement to ET. "She lived her life, bravely... My thoughts are with her daughter, Billie [Lourd], her mother, Debbie [Reynolds], her brother, Todd [Fisher], and her many friends. We will all miss her."
