First Cast Photos Amps Up The Hype For "Star Wars: Episode VII"

Now that the official Star Wars: Episode VII cast has been revealed (thee whole women, the production team have really outdone themselves this time) it’s time for the constant, non-stop barrage of on-set material to commence. Starting with a full cast photo, of course.

Star Wars
It's really happening!

The epic black and white photo was taken during a table read in London. It shows all the castmembers sitting in a circle, with director J.J. Abrams, who's talking to Han Solo/Star Wars actor Harrison Ford in the center.

Other original members in the picture include Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew. The new faces are there as well, all eager and ready to work (who wouldn’t be, it’s Star Wars) - John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis and Domhnall Gleeson are also included.

There’s an R2D2 just casually chilling in the background because why not. Producers  Bryan Burke and Lawrence Kasdan and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy round out the team meeting.
