One of the sadder parts of the new Star Wars trilogy is the fact that OG buddies Luke Skywalker and Han Solo never got to meet up before Han’s untimely death in The Force Awakens.
Actors Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford, however, are alive and still friends even after being killed off in the series that made them famous.
Hamill, who is an unyielding delight on Twitter, posted a picture of himself and Ford hugging and captioned it “What a Han/Luke reunion might have been like,” and with tens of thousands of RTs over just a few days, it’s clear Twitter had some feelings about it.
Hamill will return to Star Wars in the still-untitled ninth film in the Skywalker saga, probably as some kind of Force ghost, but there’s no word on if Ford will return for a similar beyond-the-grave cameo.
It’s still nice to think about these two space bros hugging it out in the galactic afterlife though. Just a scruffy-looking nerf herder and his Jedi best friend.
