A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was officially announced via the release of a black-and-white shot of the first table read.
These were the days before Force Awakens had a title, before Donald Trump was a serious presidential contender, and before Hitfix switched from putting movie titles in quotation marks to italicizing them. We were so innocent then. We were so young. Can we ever go back?
Yes, we can! Now that Force Awakens has blown up movie theater box offices, it's time for the Digital HD and Blu-ray releases (April 1 and 5, respectively). They will include footage of that first table read (“in full,” we are promised!), and you can watch a precious few seconds of it in this teaser.
