Star Wars: The Next Generation

This news is going to be talked to death in the days, weeks, and months ahead, and I don't really have anything to add to the conversation just yet, but I feel like it was worth immortalizing the moment on this site all the same. Seen below, we have our first look at the gathered cast of the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII for their first table read of the script with director J.J. Abrams:


This is our first official confirmation that the original trilogy's trio of Mark Hammill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher are back to play, and Princess Leia, alongside newbies John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac*, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow (Anthony "C-3PO" Daniels, Kenny "R2-D2" Baker, and Peter "Chewbacca" Mayhew are also confirmed). Right now I feel the same way I did a year or so before The Phantom Menace came out. Let's hope I don't end up feeling the same way I did a year after The Phantom Menace came out.

* I had the opportunity to interview Isaac last year for his turn in Inside Llewyn Davis, but I turned it down. That's the kind of idiot I am.
