We all remember the picture. That black and white image that made us all think that anything was possible again. It was so many things for so many fans, infinite possibilities for the future of Star Wars, as vast as space itself. It was a promise of new adventures with new friends. It spurred our imagination to ponder where our heroes ended up after Return of the Jedi, who exactly were all these new faces and what would their impact be in a galaxy far, far away?
Now that The Force Awakens is in our consciousness the possibilities for the next films in the series are a little more finite. But when we saw that picture, Star Wars was everything we wanted it to be and more. For a period of time it was perfect.
We’re all excited to see where Rian Johnson takes the path that J.J. Abrams and his amazing team laid out in the upcoming Episode VIII, but now the galaxy is a little less mysterious. We now know what the galaxy looks like thirty years after Return of the Jedi and who the players are.
If you’re like me, those days after that first picture came out were an amazing rush.
Thankfully, we can relive a little of that time when The Force Awakens comes out on home video thanks to a feature devoted to the first table read that gave us that picture. Take a look at the tease below to whet your whistle until The Force Awakens is home with us where it should be.
Get a first look at the full-cast table read of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. See it in full with Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Digital HD (available April 1) and Blu-ray Combo Pack (available April 5).
