New details have been revealed about the public memorial for Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. After loved ones held a private funeral for the mother and daughter in January, fans will be able to see the upcoming service.
TMZ reports that the memorial will take place March 25 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, where the two stars are buried. The ceremony will take place at the cemetery's 1200-seat theater, and it will be streamed online on both Fisher and Reynolds' websites.
"We'll have quite an event," a source previously told E! News. "Anybody who loved Carrie and worked with Carrie will be invited to that big event."
There will also be some guest tributes during the service. Reynolds' dance school will perform, as will Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles.
James Blunt will even debut a tribute song at the memorial. While he won't be there to perform it in person, it will play over a photo montage of the late mother and daughter. Blunt was close to Fisher, who was the godmother of his young son.
Family members, including Fisher's dog, will be at the memorial, as well. Her daughter Billie Lourd is also expected to attend, but she won't speak because it would be too emotional for her.
This public service comes two months after Fisher and Reynolds' private memorial, which took place in January. Lourd also attended that service, as did Fisher's brother Todd and half-sisters Joely and Tricia Fisher. They were joined by stars like Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jamie Lee Curtis, Candice Bergen, Ed Begley Jr., Penny Marshall, Meg Ryan, George Lucas, and Richard Dreyfuss.
Streep even performed Fisher's favorite song, "Happy Days Are Here Again," during the memorial. She also gave a eulogy, as did Fisher's friends Tracey Ullman, Bruce Wagner, Stephen Fry and Gavin de Becker. The memorial was a tribute to the parties Fisher threw at her house, right down to the menu of fried chicken, collard greens, and cornbread.
The following day, Reynolds' body was buried next to some of Fisher's ashes, which were placed in an urn shaped like a Prozac. Fisher had been open about her struggles with mental illness.
"Carrie’s favorite possession was a giant Prozac pill that she bought many years ago. A big pill," Todd Fisher told Entertainment Tonight. "She loved it, and it was in her house, and Billie and I felt it was where she’d want to be. We couldn’t find anything appropriate. Carrie would like that. It was her favorite thing, and so that’s how you do it. And so they’re together, and they will be together here and in heaven, and we’re okay with that."
Carrie Fisher died on December 27, a few days after going into cardiac arrest on a plane. She was just 60 years old. Her mother, 84-year-old Debbie Reynolds, passed away a day later following a stroke. She had been planning Fisher's funeral at the time.
