Mark Hamill continues to be one of the world’s best celebrities on Twitter after he found and responded to a rather old tweet from a mother asking him, on behalf of her daughter, if he thought Star Wars was for girls as well as for boys. The five-year-old girl had picked out some super cool Darth Vader shoes to wear to school and “a boy at school said Star Wars is for boys, according to mother Kristal Foster.

“She said Star Wars is for girls too,” Foster tweeted. “What do you think @HamillHimself?”

Hamill’s response has people falling in love with him all over again.

“I think Luke & Han are lucky Leia took over their ‘rescue’ on the Death Star or it would’ve been a very short movie,” he said.

He’s not wrong, and he was the one who played Luke, so he knows what he’s talking about.

Foster originally posted her tweet back in February 2019 and hasn’t been very active on Twitter since, so she hasn’t yet responded to Hamill’s late reply to her question. Hopefully, her daughter still has amazing taste in footwear and will be happy to hear from the man herself that yes, she is allowed to like Star Wars, and in fact, there could be no Star Wars without girls.

Real Star Wars fans, of all genders, agree.

Meanwhile, some had their own little Star Wars fans to share.

Strong and adorable, they are.
