Today in “Gifts Mark Hamill Gives the Internet,” the Star Wars star posted a behind-the-scenes video from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Shared by fellow Twitter user, @DepressedDarth, the video shows Hamill seeing Yoda and the man behind the iconic character, Frank Oz. The original tweet says Hamill was getting emotional over seeing Yoda, but Hamill joked that it was something else choking him up…
“Mark Hamill gets emotional when @TheFrankOzJam calls him ‘gorgeous,’” Hamill corrected.
“Oh my god. It’s really getting to me,” Hamill says in the video.
“I’m still upset that he hasn’t aged a day,” Hamill joked when seeing Oz. “I’ve aged… tragically,” he added. That’s when Oz called him “gorgeous.” Adorable!
Many fans commented on the post, clearly enjoying the video.
“The thing that’s so great about this is that, as you well know, Frank NEVER says something he didn’t mean. What a beautiful, HONEST, moment,” @moonwatcher1 wrote.
“That hug got ME emotional,” @aimster_17 replied.
“I’m not crying—you’re crying! The love that @HamillHimself has for Yoda and the beautiful friendship with Frank Oz is so sweet! #FriendshipGoals #TheForce,” @ForceOfGaia
One fan even shared a nice shot to Oz and Hamill together:
