In a galaxy far, far away, there were no swear words... until now.
But times have clearly changed, as the first swear word has officially entered the Star Wars universe, and everyone has found it hilarious.
The foul word features in Disney+'s newest series Andor, which is a prequel to the 2016 hit Rogue One.
Three episodes dropped on the streaming service yesterday, 21 September, and it's safe to say people are rightfully losing it.
We'll give you one guess as to what the swear word might be from the trailer here:
For reference, it's not 'hell' or 'damn,' which has featured in the Star Wars universe before - we aren't counting those because we're not 12.
While many were thrilled to follow protagonist Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) as he embarks on the path that transforms him into a rebel hero, there was one moment in particular that stood out to fans, and it's where we finally hear the swear word.
It features in episode three of the new series when Cassian and Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgård) are under attack from Pre-Mor employees.
As the Pre-Mor employees are searching for Cassian and Luthen, residents of the community they enter decide to make a stand and let off an explosion.
This catches Sergeant Linus Mosk (Alex Ferns) by surprise and he utters the words "s**t we're under siege."
Naturally, people were quick to comment on the monumental moment, with one user sharing a clip of the scene saying: "The first time someone in Star Wars says "Sh*t" and it's some Scottish guy."
Another suggested that the expletive was an inevitability: "Let me jump in here. For those who might not believe it this is the REAL Alex Ferns and this is what happens when you stick a Glaswegian in A Galaxy Far Far Away."

While another added: "Your presence and ability to elevate such a role into already iconic character in just three episodes was amazing. Hope this isn't the last we see of Sergeant Mosk!"
However, one suggested there had been a few swears in Star Wars before: "It's always been a thing just not very common. Hell is probably the most commonly used one. Other than that Blast is the replacement for Damn Kriff is the old replacement for F*** I think if I'm remembering correctly."
Like we said, we're not sure how much 'hell' counts as a swear word, but fair enough.
Andor is available to stream on Disney+ now.
