Princess Leia is getting a new title.

In an Entertainment Weekly article, J.J. Abrams reveals the new name for the character formerly known as Princess Leia.

“She’s referred to as General,” Abrams told EW. “But … there’s a moment in the movie where a character sort of slips and calls her ‘Princess.’ ”

Abrams talks a lot about the veteran characters Leia and Han Solo, and Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, returning to the movie.

“The stakes are pretty high in the story for her, so there’s not much goofing around where Leia’s concerned,” Abrams continues about Leia’s new badder than badass role as “General Organa,” Leia’s last name.

“She is crazy brilliant,” Abrams continues about working with Fisher in the EW piece.

We couldn’t agree more.
