Days before Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey makes its debut at this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival, Disney has released a new look at the now-iconic first photo from the initial Star Wars cast table read.

Before Star Wars: The Force Awakens even had a title, the table read photo was a huge moment for fans, the ultimate “fly on the wall” wish for everyone looking forward to the saga’s continuation. The film’s new cast was first announced via that picture — Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, and Oscar Isaac all participated in the script read — and it also marked a reunion for original stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill.

Now, thanks to the home release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans will be able to see moments from that first table read in action. A new clip from the digital and Blu-ray release of the film teases what’s bound to be one of the most pored over special features on the release.

You’ll be able to check out the complete feature when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits digital platforms on April 1 and Blu-ray on April 5. The making-of documentary will make its world premiere at SXSW on Monday.
