Mark Hamill Corrects 'SNL' Joke About 'Star Wars' Incest

There was a joke on Eddie Murphy‘s episode of Saturday Night Live during the Weekend Update segment, where Michael Che referenced Luke and Leia’s relationship.

Luke and Leia, in the Star Wars movies, didn’t realize they were related in the movies and their relationship was originally romantic in nature.

Michael‘s joke referenced the same-sex kiss in The Rise of Skywalker, and he added that kiss was “pretty tame considering the first movie had incest.”

Mark tweeted about the joke, “SNL Weekend Update- ‘The new #StarWars surprised fans by featuring a gay kiss-which seems pretty tame considering the 1st movie had incest’ WRONG! Since Luke & Leia were totally unaware that they were related in any way whatsoever-what they did [wasn't] actually #Innocestuous”
