PHOENIX – Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, paid tribute to his fictional sister and real-life friend, the late Carrie Fisher, following the announcement that unseen footage of her would be used in Star Wars: Episode IX.

In reaction to the news, Hamill tweeted, “It’s bittersweet facing my final chapter without her-She is simply irreplaceable. I’m finding solace in the fact that she won’t BE replaced & would love the worldwide outpouring of affection from those who loved her when they heard the news.”

Fisher died in December 2016, before the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

John Boyega, who plays Finn in the new movies, tweeted back to Hamill saying, “We’ll get through it dad,” using the hashtag “Carrie On Forever.”

Fans were also quick to realize Hamill’s mention of this being his final chapter:
