While, watching The Oscars it would be easy to feel as if everyone knows one another. Actors and actresses who have never shared the screen together are often sitting next to each other, and the night is full of friendly smiles and kisses on the cheek being exchanged. Still, many of these people have never formally met and even celebrities can be fans. Such was seemingly the case at this year's Academy Awards when Star Wars actor Mark Hamill introduced himself to Wonder Woman star, Gal Gadot. Take a look below to see that even a Master Jedi can be in awe of an Amazonian princess.

What a sweet and charming moment. This happened during the segment where the celebrities took candy and food to the audience at a nearby theater to thank them for supporting the movies with their patronage. In this silly moment, while on camera, Mark Hamill decided to introduce himself to the Israeli actress. The Twitter post from @SurvivingGrady notes that this is the highlight of the Oscars and while I'd say that is debatable, this is certainly near the top of the best moments from the night. Mark Hamill looked so in awe of the beautiful and much taller Gal Gadot, not unlike when Steve Trevor met the Amazonian for the first time. I also like this moment because Mark Hamill, who has never taken his celebrity too seriously, has no problem introducing himself to the burgeoning star just like the average person would, even though he's the more tenured actor. It's just kind of neat to see such recognizable faces meeting each other for the first time.

This moment is especially cool because like many of the people who drove Wonder Woman to such success, Mark Hamill is a known comic book fan. Not only that, but the actor has been a major part of the history of DC thanks to his role as the longtime voice actor for the Joker in TV shows and video games. So as a comic fan and a proud member of the DC family, he was probably stoked to meet the woman who brought Wonder Woman to life on the big screen. Plus if you look at it from Mark Hamill's character's perspective, you're Luke Skywalker, you've been living alone for years with only porgs, caretakers and a space cow for company, if Diana Prince comes along, you've got to introduce yourself.

While the future for Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars universe remains murky, Mark Hamill may actually be making the jump to live-action comic book films, albeit not for DC. The actor and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn both seem keen on bringing Hamill into the MCU which, and I think I speak for most everyone here, would be awesome. Meanwhile, Gal Gadot's Diana Prince may be facing off with Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2, which is scheduled for release on November 1, 2019. For all the latest in movie news, stay tuned to CinemaBlend.
