The Force is strong on Twitter.

Luke and Leia — that’s Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher when we’re not in a galaxy far, far away — took to Twitter to express their excitement over joining J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. Maybe too much excitement on Fisher’s part, actually.

On Wednesday, the actress posted this tweet with a link to the official cast announcement:

May the Chapter VII be with you…always. Or at least until 2015. I love you….you know.

— Carrie Fisher (@carrieffisher) April 30, 2014

Fans were aghast that their beloved Princess of Alderaan would screw up Star Wars lingo. She quickly corrected herself in the most Carrie Fisher way possible:


CHAPTER 7 is the PORN version of Episode 7 . Chapter 8 & a half is a little of both — Carrie Fisher (@carrieffisher) April 30, 2014



Here’s the correct vernacular version now & then g’nite…my galaxy questers ..May the Episode 7 be with you. Always…I love u–you know x

— Carrie Fisher (@carrieffisher) April 30, 2014

And then adorably blamed her pooch for the mistake:



Blame my dog ,Gary, for saying chapter 7 instead episode 7; the film that will change your life, clean your droids & make you breakfast. — Carrie Fisher (@carrieffisher) April 30, 2014

Hamill, meanwhile, took the cheerleader route in his post:



UK table read- I was knocked out by the diverse & extraordinarily talented new cast members. WOW they’re good! The saga is in superb hands.

— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) May 1, 2014

Note to Abrams: Please don’t put the kibosh on the cast’s social media use once production is in full swing!
