Star Wars: The Last Jedi may have charted a new path for the franchise but it was still packed with a lot of nostalgia. One of the homages to the old era came via the surprise reunion of Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker and Master Yoda as they talked about the Jedi Order’s future. Now, a behind-the-scenes clip has emerged from the film’s home release showing Hamill getting emotional seeing Frank Oz doing voice work with the Yoda puppet once more.

Hamill’s Skywalker hasn’t been in Yoda’s presence since the Master Jedi died in 1983’s Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. “Oh my God,” Hamill says in the clip, which shows him looking on with director Rian Johnson. “It’s really getting to me.” Oz then becomes aware Hamill is watching and both old friends embrace. “I am still jealous he hasn’t aged a day,” Hamill jokes, only for Oz to then tell Hamill that he’s still “beautiful.”
