The Hollywood Walk of Fame
Did you know that there are currently 2,753 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Some of these stars belong to Disney royalty like Walt Disney and Roy Disney.

Numerous Disney Legends have stars including Kristen Bell, Julie Andrews, Angela Lansbury, and Dick Van Dyke.
But now, that famous walk near the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard is going to shine a little brighter as Hollywood adds another Disney Legend to the mix. The actress who brought the galaxy’s most legendary princess to life will finally have a star of her own.
The 2,754th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will belong to none other than Disney Legend Carrie Fisher. She will be honored in the category of Motion Pictures. In the movie world, she is most renowned for her portrayal of the iconic role of Princess Leia in the Star Wars Franchise.
Her star will join those of her Star Wars costars Harrison Ford and Mark Hammil. Her mother Debbie Reynolds also has a star on the Walk of Fame.
