Todd Fisher Debbie Reynolds son and Carrie’s brother said
“They have warehouses full of items from movie sets, other movie stars and of course, Star Wars memorabilia.
Debbie had a mandate. It started when she did the first auction, which was to find people that cared as much as she did and put it in their hands since she could no longer take care of all of it.
My mother was a fan. She was a little girl at the studios and she was enamored by the stars just like everybody else.
It’s why all the money made from auctioning these items is going towards the Debbie Reynolds Performing Arts Scholarship at UNLV.
Carrie and Debbie left amazing things in their work, in their writings, in their movies, all the things they did, pictures, a lot of things. But this is just a really unique little way to keep her alive and to help find that next Debbie Reynolds, that next Carrie Fisher.
It’s why she spent so much of her career giving back to countless charities,” Fisher said, “One of those charities was UNLV and Debbie felt connected to Las Vegas, connected to this university.
We at Fantha tracks had a look through the lots and found famous Hollywood props and costumes from a range of films including Bridge On The River Kwai, Ben Hur and Planet of the Apes.
It was the Star Wars lots that are of great interest to us, here are some of the highlights;
