Earlier this week, Star War’s Mark Hamill paid tribute to the late Carrie Fisher with a hilarious photo of a frog with snails-for-Princess-Leia-buns. In the comments of that photo, a Twitter user asked Hamill what the silliest fight he had with Fisher was. Because Hamill is just that kind of guy, he actually responded with a heartwarming story.
“When they told us it would soon be revealed we were siblings,” Hamill says in a tweet. “Me: “Wait a minute, If Luke is Princess Leia’s brother…does that make me royalty?” Her: (without a moment of hesitation ) “NO!!!” I didn’t really care, but she really, REALLY did, so I never let it go — EVER”
What was the silliest fight you had with Carrie?

When they told us it would soon be revealed we were siblings. Me:”Wait a minute, If Luke is Princess Leia’s brother…does that make me royalty?” Her:(without a moment of hesitation )”NO!!!” I didn’t really care, but she really, REALLY did, so I never let it go-EVER. 🤣#TrueStory https://t.co/Ga8hnWG4V1

Of course, the interaction had Star Wars fans deep in their feelings. Additionally, many took to the platform to defend either Hamill or Fisher.
Luke actually is a prince. Leia is royalty through her biological mother.

i love her so much but I’d rather be a Jedi than a princess 😉

You can rewatch the scene where Luke Skywalker tells Princess Leia that they’re related below.
Despite Fisher’s passing, it looks like we will be seeing her character grace the Star Wars screen again soon. Star Wars: Episode IX will recycle unused footage of Carrie Fisher for her character of General Leia.
