This Is the Only Video You Wanted From the Star Wars Table Read. We Know.

Now do Jedi for the role reversal!

Since you probably didn’t get to see it for yourself, here’s the moment from last night’s Empire Strikes Back table read in L.A. when Ellen Page and Jessica Alba (Han and Leia) acknowledged their feelings for each other. If you listen closely, you can also join the cast in laughing at a very, um, enthusiastic audience member’s reaction to the kissing narration.

Then they took to Twitter to keep the adorable going, because who wants to let this end?

Here’s a shot of the cast from Alba’s Instagram along with special guest Mark Hamill:

From left to right: Aaron Paul played Luke, Jessica Alba was Leia, Stephen Merchant was C3P0, Dennis Haysbert was Lando, Rainn Wilson was Chewbacca, Mark Hamill was Mark flipping Hamill, Ellen Page was Han Solo, J.K. Simmons was Darth Vader, and Kevin Pollak handled Yoda.
