Step aside, Chewbacca — there’s a new fuzzball ready to step into the Star Wars limelight. Gary Fisher, the photogenic French bulldog of Carrie Fisher (aka Princess Leia, aka General), joined Instagram Wednesday.

Though the pooch had fewer than 100 followers at the time of writing, he has been dutifully accompanying Fisher while making the rounds to promote Star Wars: The Force Awakens. During a recent appearance on Good Morning America, Fisher said Gary’s ever-wagging tongue results from his excitement over the long-awaited sequel: “The tongue wasn’t out of his mouth before he saw the movie, and now that’s his review.”

Wednesday was a big day for Fisher’s clan, as it also brought the first look at Fisher’s real-life daughter, Billie Lourd, in costume as a yet-unknown Force Awakens character.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens Dec. 18.
