Director Leos Carax has been reunited with his dog after Star Wars actor Adam Driver filmed an appeal to help find it.

The Kylo Ren star, who’s filming the musical movie Annette, co-starring Marion Cotillard and directed by Carax, shared a video yesterday searching for the dog - Javelot - in Brussels, where they’re filming.

“He got spooked by some of the traffic and ran off, so he’s been missing for 24 hours,” Driver said. “The last place he was seen is in this park.”

CG Cinema, the production company behind the film, says the pooch has now been located safe and sound.

Driver isn’t on social media, but he made a video, which fellow Star Wars actor Mark Hamill shared, in which he explained that the pup ran away while the cast and crew were shooting a scene nearby.

Driver explained that Javelot is “very much a member of the crew,” and he gave a phone number where people can provide any helpful information.

He even offered an incentive: “We will put you in the movie. We’ll give you chocolate. We’ll christen your child. We’ll do anything as a way of saying thank you.”

Fans applauded both Driver and Hamill for helping to find Javelot.

Driver has a soft spot for dogs, including his own, a Rottweiler-pit bull he calls Moose, because, well, that’s what he looks like. Moose is really big, according to his owner.

“I don’t know that I could love anything more,” Driver said in a 2017 video for W magazine.

Hamill and Driver will both appear in December’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
