  1. Is this a real photo? This isn’t some crazy composite? There’s Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, the back of Anthony Daniels’ head, and what I’m hoping isn’t Kenny Baker in a box.

    The caption says it’s a read-through, that’s impressive.

  2. I love that Carrie’s taken her shoes off to relax, and that Mark’s growing a beard!

    Kenny Baker and Max von Sydow don’t appear to be in the photo, but everyone else listed in the cast is there. Pretty wild to have Andy Serkis, but as he’s the mo-cap king, it makes perfect sense.
