Its set 5 years after RotJ which would allow them to do a soft reboot by casting still somewhat young, early 30s, actors which would provide continuity for the follow up movies. It introduces a Bond quality villian in Thrawn who is an interesting character. Also it would allow us to see a newly married Han adjusting to being a family man and provide an introduction to Luke's future wife as well. Plus the subject matter is a fairly direct follow up to RotJ.
As much as I would love to see the films after 4, 5, and 6, the time has past for those. Recasting for Leia, Han, and Luke just shouldn't be done. I love the story, but you can't replace Fisher, Ford, and Hamill.

I agree. Those 3 are iconic. Sadly I don't think the Mouse is going to give us a choice in the matter.

All the Star Wars are awesome.

I think ppl expect the same butterflies the original trilogy gave them when they were in footy pjs.....Not gonna happen man.

I like the second trilogy better in fact.

Revenge of the Sith - not bad

Star Wars -excellent

The Empire Strikes Back - world class good
This

You nailed it...this is exactly how I rate these films.

You and I are now Star Wars buddies and we will call each other by our own special SW names.

YOu know what needs to be made into a movie?

Darth Bane's story. If you've read the novels, you'll know how awesome a movie this could potentially be.

Oh yeah, Bane's story would be awesome.

I just like the Sith history so much more, anyway.

The second trilogy was a complete joke. Sellout Lucas at his worst. It's like he and Spielberg would get together to see how to make the cheesiest family friendly movies they could. The only one even remotely watchable is Revenge of the Sith. I have little hope for anything else from this franchise.

People said that about Harrison Ford still being Indy, but it worked out. (IJ4's problem was script, not convincingness from Ford).

Old age also didn't slow down the original Star Trek franchise.

Just write an entertaining script that acknowledges the characters are older and fans will love it.

Recasting? Fisher and Hamill have already said they'd commit. Even Ford said for the first in in 20+ years he'd consider it if the part was written to his liking (he wanted Han to die in the last movie and Lucas refused).

I think they can move the next three books in Time enough to use the Aged stars as they are and use the first of the next Trilogy to pass the torch as it were. In the hands of the right director and writer this could be done very well. I see it happening, and they'll give Ford whatever he wants to come back and close the door that he's wanted closed for 20+ years.

As i mentioned in my post above, if they try to pass the torch of the franchise from the original three to a new three and integrate the stories, then they have to age the story to account for their current ages (all over 60). Even Hollywood can't "young" those three enough to only imagine a 5 year gap. hehe

The only way I could see it work is if they timed the next three to be after the war with the Yuuzhan Vong. Any earlier than that and it just wouldn't work with their ages.

Yea, if you're gonna use the AARPs then you gotta advance the time frame at least thirty years for it to not seem completely ridiculous.

Idk about the other two, cuz what have they ever done other than Star Wars? Harrison Ford on the other hand, is friggin' awesome. I thought he was great in Cowboys and Aliens.

You can't do lightsaber battles the caliber of the one's in the prequel trilogy[which were the highlight of the prequels] with geriatric actors. It's a lose-lose. If you go with the original actors,people will complain because there's nowhere near enough action,or what action there is stinks. If they recast it,people will complain if the replacements don't stck up to the original performances.

I know Carrie Fisher had a bit part in the Blues Brothers. The most recent live action stuff I've seen from either Fisher or Hammil were their parts in Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back. Hammil is primarily a voice actor,now.

You under estimate the power of the Hollywood Force (Special Effects).

And who says they're going to be involved in major fighting? Passing the baton doesn't require actually runnign in the race at this point.

Depends on what they are doing. If they are doing New Jedi Order from EU and focusing around their kids,then that would be ok. If they are focusing more on the immediate events after Return,then it simply doesn't work.

They'll make the story work for them. Trust me, passing the ball will happen and they'll make the story work one way or another.

Yea, Mark Hamill, behind Billy West, is probably one of the biggest voice actors out there. Many may recognize him as the voice of the Joker.

Fisher struggled with addiction and her bipolar disorder after Star Wars but has done some guest work in the last few years.







Being realistic, they were already playing characters younger than they were in 1977. Carrie was the closest to her character's age at 21 playing a 18-19 year old and Mark was 26 playing the same age. Ford was 35 playing playing a 29 year old. The last major series (Legacy of the Force) took place 40 years after the first book. So if they go with this, they're at least playing 60-70 year olds, which is realistic. If the decide to go afterwards, that would work too.
