Mark Hamill on Star Wars Episode 4 Leia line flub

Posted on

Lucasfilm

Contrary to decades of popular belief, Luke Skywalker did not accidentally break the fourth wall in Star Wars: A New Hope. Just ask the man behind the young Jedi.

Mark Hamill decided to address what had long been considered a line flub from A New Hope, as Luke returns from the Battle of Yavin, greeted by his friends in celebration. It has been a long-held belief that Hamill shouts “Carrie” when embracing Carrie Fisher rather than addressing her as Leia. But Hamill insists that’s not the case.

Responding to a fan’s question about a Screen Rant video pointing out the supposed error (which you can watch below), Hamill stated that he was actually saying “There she…” beginning the sentence “There she is,” with dialogue in that scene being dubbed.

“Total BS,” was his response to whether he addressed his co-star by her actual name.

So it looks like if fans spot any quesitonable ADR once Star Wars: The Force Awakens releases on Dec. 18, Hamill will be more than willing to settle the would-be debates before they rage on for decades.
