Star Wars Celebration Orlando offers many things for fans to enjoy, but this year there's a little something special: the dress Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia wore at the end of Star Wars: A New Hope

The dress was lost for decades following the filming of the movie, until it was uncovered by collector Stephen Lane, languishing in an attic, collecting dust and dirt. Lane restored the dress and brought it with him to Star Wars Celebration for fans to enjoy.

Watch our interview with Lane to find out how he brought the iconic dress back to life and why he thought this year was the right time to display it.
