Lizzo wowed fans last week when she made a guest appearance in The Mandalorian.
The singer starred alongside Jack Black as the Duchess and Captain Bombardier, the very chic leaders of Plazir-15.
For those interested, in the episode, they enlisted the help of Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) and Din (Pedro Pascal) to sort out their droid problems.
Understandably, Lizzo's cameo shocked quite a few fans, even the popstar herself.
Speaking about getting the role, the 34-year-old said she couldn't believe it.
“When I was a young girl my dad introduced me to Star Wars like a rite of passage,” she wrote on Instagram.
"The trilogy’s are his favorite movies and quickly became mine. When Jon Favreau called me and offered the role of The Dutchess I cried all day wishing my dad was still with us cus he’d be so proud.
"Star Wars was a dream I never thought was possible— but thanks to Jon, Bryce, and everyone in the galaxy I am now part of the ever-expanding saga of the stars.
"I am in honorable company and forever grateful. This is The Way…. and May the Force be with you."
As well as always being able to say she's been in Star Wars, Lizzo realised recently that it also means she's officially a Disney princess.
Taking to TikTok, the singer posted a video with the caption: "Y'all I just realised that I'm royalty in Star Wars, which is Disney, which makes me a Disney princess."
And her fans were very much here for it.
Since posting the vid, Lizzo's page has been flooded with messages of support.
"You've been royalty since you were born, Lizzo," wrote one follower.
Another commented: "Was the first thing I screamed: Lizzo Disney princess."
"You were a queen in that episode," put a third.
While another added: "I'm about to watch all of The Mandalorian just for your cameo."
The show's creator, Jon Favreau, recently spoke about why he decided to get Lizzo and Black involved.
He told Entertainment Weekly that he loved the fact they were both fans of the series.
"We got Lizzo and Jack Black involved because, honestly, one of the things that we really like about working on the show is we like to bring in people who are fans themselves," he said.
"And Lizzo and Jack Black both were very active on social media. I know Jack from way back, but he was posting and doing Mandalorian things on either Instagram or TikTok.
"And Lizzo was dressing up like Grogu. And my kids were showing me all these videos of how into it Lizzo was."
