Star Wars: The Last Jedi offered audiences numerous amazing moments, yet one moment in particular understandably stood out above the rest for star Mark Hamill. Over on Twitter, Hamill noted that his reunion with his on-screen sister was his favorite moment, which was memorialized in artwork that will be available at Star Wars Celebration.
The actor replied to a Twitter user who posted an image of the artwork, while adding, "Thanks [artist Karen Hallion] for this beautiful interpretation of my favorite moment in the film!"
Get a better look at the impressive piece below.
This is my illustration for @SW_Celebration 2019. As a long time Star Wars fan, seeing these two together again was just incredible. And, after Carrie died, I felt like @HamillHimself was saying goodbye to her for all of us here, although she will not ever really be gone. pic.twitter.com/TcVQisuGsw— Karen (@Khallion) February 25, 2019
Despite this moment being Hamill's favorite, the actor has previously revealed that this reunion has made it impossible to watch the scene again.
"I can't watch that scene. It's just, you know, takes me out of the movie completely," Hamill shared with Entertainment Tonight. "I'll get over it, but she'll be forever missed and she's irreplaceable."
The actor also confirmed that the loving gesture was something he improvised while shooting the scene.
"I didn't decide it and say, 'Can I do this?' I mean, in the take — I don't know if we rehearsed it or not, but it just happened," Hamill shared. "I was standing up and they weren't ready for it. They said, 'No, do that again.' And we did it for a second take, and like I said, it was just spontaneous."
With Fisher passing shortly after wrapping production on The Last Jedi, many fans had assumed it would be the last time we'd see her on the big screen. However, when production on Star Wars: Episode IX began, Lucasfilm confirmed the sequel would use unseen footage from both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi to bring Leia Organa's journey to a close. Hamill will also be appearing in the film, though we doubt the pair will be sharing the screen.
Star Wars: Episode IX lands in theaters on December 20th.
