17 Great Twitter Reactions To Star Wars Casting Announcement

04.29.14

With rumors flying fast and furious as Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill were spotted in London yesterday, Disney/Lucasfilm had to pull the trigger on their Star Wars casting announcement. A photo of the first table read for Episode VII was released along with the full cast list. And the Internet promptly exploded. As it does. Here were some of the best responses in order of amusement to me in no particular order 

#1 – We all know our relationship with Star Wars is like First Love™.

#4 – So that's what was missing from the first table read.

#15 – It appears the plague that wiped out 97% of human women in the Star Wars galaxy is multi-generational. Such a terrible tragedy.
