Obviously the two have recreated an iconic scene from The Empire Strikes Back in which Luke Skywalker (Hamill), whilst going through his intense Jedi training under Yoda’s tutelage on Dagobah, carried his master on his back through the thick swampy forest. It’s widely believed that Rey (Ridley) will now similiarly train as a Jedi under Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VIII.
Of course the Internet always has to one-up everything.
