With the announcement of Carrie Fisher returning with footage from The Force Awakens and other footage in order to give Leia and Carrie their final cinematic send-off in Episode IX, it’s something we are all trying to process, but knowing the production has the blessing of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, at least gives me hope that it will be done gracefully.

However, what got my heart really twisted up with emotion was seeing this perfect tweet from Mark Hamill, about his space sister, on Twitter last night.

The response to it from John Boyega, space son, and others was a beautiful moment of solidarity in a fandom that has been going through a spiral for a bit.

Am I crying? Yes, okay, whatever.

Despite all the divisions in this fandom, there is one thing we can all agree on: We will always miss our Princess, our general, our Carrie.
