Mark Hamill Daisy Ridley
Daisy Ridley may be the birthday girl, but her Jedi training waits for nothing. To commemorate the actress turning 24, her Star Wars: Episode VIII costar Mark Hamill posted a photo of the pair channeling Luke Skywalker and Yoda.
“A long time ago (last week I think) In a galaxy far, far way (@PinewoodStudios) THIS happened,” Hamill tweeted. “Happy Birthday Daisy!”
This mimics the image from the original Star Wars film from 1977 where Mark had Yoda on his back when training as Luke Skywalker to learn the ways of the Force.
Yoda was trying to get the young Jedi to lift objects without using physical force.
In the new image, Daisy and Mark were in the parking lot of Pinewood Studios.
The photo was taken at England’s Pinewood Studios, where Star Wars: Episode VIII is filming now as we all very impatiently await its release in December 2017.
