The force was with multiple generations!

As revealed in this behind-the-scenes clip from the first “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”  table read, stars of the iconic sci-fi franchise were all on hand to bring the most current screenplay to life.

Newbies Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Issac — along with original stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill — were all present for the big day.

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