Over the weekend, the worlds of “Star Wars” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” collided when Mark Hamill and James Gunn joined forces for a Memorial Day BBQ.

Fans have been eager for this meet up since February when the pair got into a conversation on Twitter. During their social media chat, the “Star Wars” star and “Guardians of the Galaxy” director agreed to grab a cup of coffee and talk about a potential role for Hamill in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”

It’s not clear if they actually had that casting conversation yet, but they definitely had fun celebrating the unofficial start of summer.

The Hamills hosted the get-together, which also served as a birthday party for “Ant-Man” actor David Dastmalchian’s daughter.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” which may or may not have a role for Mark Hamill, is set for release in 2020.
