We got the big news this week that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will star in J.J Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. Accompanying the announcement was a photo of the UK table read with the cast members (view photo here) and now Hamill has tweeted about the experience.
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.

That is certainly good news, but it looks like that is not the only Disney property that Serkis is involved in. Avengers: Age of Ultron star Mark Ruffalo tweeted the following when asked if he could say something about The Hulk in the sequel.
