Watch: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Table Read Teaser Captures Epic Cast Meeting

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.”

Disney has released a video teasing the now-famous “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” full-cast table read.

This early gathering of “Episode VII’s” cast was first previewed with a single black and white image, which accompanied Disney and Lucasfilm’s casting announcement, back in April of 2014, before the seventh “Star Wars” installment had an official title.

The newly released slideshow offers glimpses of “Star Wars” actors Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and director J.J. Abrams mid table read, as well as a brief clip of video footage featuring a read of the iconic line, “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.”

”This was going to be the first gathering of this original cast, new cast, this core group of people that was part of making this movie and we wanted to document it, but the most important thing was to hear it,” Abrams says in the voiceover. “Just as a fan of ‘Star Wars,’ to see them all together was an incredible thrill.”

Luckily for fans, the entire table read was documented and will be featured in full in the”Star Wars: The Force Awakens” home entertainment package, which becomes available as a digital home entertainment download on April 1, followed by a Blu-ray combo pack release on April 5.

In other “Star Wars” news, the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens'” making-of documentary, “Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey,” will premiere at SXSW in a mere three days. The entire doc, which features exclusive cast and crew footage, will also be available on the yet-to-be released digital download and Blu-ray combo pack.
