Pretty much everyone who has seen a “Star Wars” movie was excited to see the “Episode VII” cast assemble for the first table read, and that includes Luke Skywalker actor, Mark Hamill, who seemed pretty pumped himself.
UK table read- I was knocked out by the diverse & extraordinarily talented new cast members. WOW they're good! The saga is in superb hands.

Hamill had been long-rumored as a member of the cast, pretty much starting back when Disney and Lucasfilm first announced “Episode VII.” It’s great to finally see him talking openly about the new film.
The actor is fairly active on social media, so his Twitter account will be one to watch as filming on “Star Wars: Episode VII” begins.
“Star Wars: Episode VII” opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
