Mark Hamill Recreates Iconic Scene From The Empire Strikes Back For Daisy Ridley's Birthday


When Star Wars Episode VIII star Daisy Ridley posed with Mark Hamill to recreate a light-hearted version of Luke Skywalker's Jedi training with Master Yoda, do you think she realized it would turn out to be the most-reshared birthday card in the universe?

In any event, Hamill tweeted out the charming image of himself with his young co-star, with the caption "A long time ago (last week I think) In a galaxy far, far way(@PinewoodStudios ) THIS happened! Happy Birthday Daisy!"

...Now, I fully expect to see this scene in the movie. Because size matters not.

(That last joke stolen from somebody, but I can live with myself.)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters December 18, 2015, kicking off a new trilogy of Saga films as Episodes VIII and IX are already scheduled. The film garnered a record $247 million at the domestic box office and $529 million globally in its opening weekend.
