Anyway, SWVII. Here's hoping we get some real sets, model and prosthetics and ditch the CGI clean room look.


Agreed and with JJ on board we will.

Does anyone else think that original roles could/should be re-cast if any of the characters are indeed involved ? I'm not against it, Matt Damon as Luke anyone ?.........

I don't see what the original cast bring to the table other than a familiar name/face, If they are a major part of the story, who really wants to see a bunch of would be pensioners running around with their kids in tow (indy 4 anyone ?) The possiblity of there being too many characters involved if you take into account the children of Han and Leia and any other new additions.

If then its cameo's, why even bother ? Hasn't the series had already had enough shameless nods and winks to the original films.

Personally I just want my fond memories of the Original cast to remain just that, fond memories ! Recast or not at all for me.

Still wouldn't stop me seeing the film though

MATT DAMOOONN!!

Seriously now. If they recast any of the original characters then I am out! like Dragons Den out!!

Is all depends if they are planning to carry straight on with a story based on the original characters and children or not. If they do then I am fine with the old cast back and a story line involving their children or padawans. If not! and they are going to have new characters then I agree, no nods or cameos!! it ruined Star Trek movie for me for a start!
Given that its being tagged as Episode 7 I would put my money on a continuation of the original saga!

Are there any spare facepalm gif's going?

Anyway, the only link I think that could be shoe-horned in would be Mark Hamill as the aged Jedi master/leader in some sort of teaching capacity.

The books have gotten to about 50 years after Return Of The Jedi, and still overwhelmingly deal with the adventures of Luke, Han and Leia, even if more emphasis over time has been put onto Ben Skywalker. As I've said before, I would hope all of this continuity isn't completely done away with, as it's been sold to us the official continuation of the movies until now.

And wasn't Qui-Gon Jinn pretty much universally considered to be one of two good things about The Phantom Menace? He wasn't exactly young.

Ha ha, the Matt Damon name drop was in jest, should have used a smiley ! Thinking about it I could definitely live with Hamill on his own but all 3, nah not for me. Ford was terrible in Indy 4 IMO and has been pretty bad for a while the thought of him returning to his most famous role scares me.

Hamill might need to go on an exercise regime if we're to believe that he's still a bad-ass Jedi Knight, though.

(Also, I liked Indy 4... let the shit-throwing commence).

I know ya was joking! ;) Agreed, Hamill only. I can handle an aged and hooded Luke, Master Jedi. I don't want to see an old Leia!

They did ok with the Emperor in RoTS , I am sure Hamill can still swing and rock the black outfit. No reason he even ever has to wield a lightsaber anyway!. Mind powers and lighting!!!!!

Difference is Liam Neesan is a damn fine actor, is still making decent films and putting in good performances. He's had a bit of a renaissance as an action star in recent times, says a lot about the mans physical presence and qualities as an actor and that's 14 years after PM. You can't really say the same about Hamill, Fisher and even Ford on current form.

Actually! you might have a point! Hamill is carrying a few extra midichlorians!

I don't think a female as the main lead would hurt the franchise, fans of Star Wars are not going to be suddenly turned off solely on the basis the main protagonist is a woman. It might even open the door to a new generation of fans. A female lead didn't hurt The Hunger Games and yes you can argue different target audience but I would imagine one of Disney's aim is to expand the already huge, loyal fan base of Star Wars even further.

Star Wars is supposed to be a space epic.  One of the problems with the prequals was that they reduced it all down to the same characters or there antecendants.

Screw re-casting the the originals and screw their kids.  You've got a whole universe to play with, go somewhere new.

Oh, what the matter diddums, no one want to play out with you so you thought some name calling would make you feel big. Who is the tool here really?. Especially given that I have never conversed with once on these forums. Did you not like something the bad man said, lol.

There's always cgi help on hand. These guys had Christopher Lee doing backflips in Episode II & III.

Well I ain't going anywhere, so you and Rich can go cry elsewhere! I'll give my opinion on the threads and discuss where and whenever I please, I'm not here just to say things to be cool and popular, and given your dull input I can't say I would care what you think anyway. If you or indeed anyone else doesn't like it, put me on ignore, oh and you could quit sending me insulting private messages too, find something better to do, like discussing actual thread topic.
