Some people aren't happy with the makeup of the "Star Wars: Episode VII" cast, but not Mark Hamill. The original trilogy stalwart tweeted his excitement about the group of actors assembled by director J.J. Abrams following the film's first table read on Tuesday.
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.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" will star John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac in lead roles, with Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow and Adam Driver lending support. Abrams reportedly has one other role to cast, a part he had previously discussed with Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o.
