In 2014 and 2015, HBO shot a documentary called Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds about the duo's unique mother-daughter relationship. After the heart-wrenching deaths of both Hollywood legends last week (Reynolds died just one day after her daughter), HBO has pushed up the release to this Sunday.

The trailer for the documentary, released today, finds Fisher preparing to shoot Star Wars: The Force Awakens (or "Star Wars 72," according to her) as Reynolds prepares to accept her SAG Lifetime Achievement award and struggle with her cell phone. The clip is filled with touching commentary on one another, adorable banter, and home footage. Watch the trailer below, and be sure to tune into the premiere on Saturday, January 7, at 8 p.m. on HBO.
