Lucas said a long, long time ago in a far off galaxy that Episodes 7 would occur when the characters were in their early 60's. Mark Hamill is 61--but looks turrible. Lucas did meet with Hamill and Fisher this past summer and talked about making more films. If they are good at makeup and take the raspy, smokiness out of Fisher's voice they might have something.
Tuesdays news that George Lucas is giving the keys to the Star Wars universe to The Walt Disney Company in a $4.05 billion mega-deal surprised fans ar...
They better get Lawrence Kasdan involved. Dammit!
They do not need to get the old cast to star in the movie that would be turrible.
I think they will make it pretty damn good. They don't really have a choice.
I personally hope they go the Batman route and make it grittier/darker.
They could always give them the Tron Legacy treatment and CGI their faces to be younger.
As for directors, you need people who are good at mastering visual style and emotional connections, as well as someone that would respect the source material.
I think Whedon, Abrams, or Nolan would all be good candidates.
Christopher Nolan was the first that came to my mind.
Does he want another trilogy though, especially when he just created a classic one?
Recast idea: Emma Watson for Carrie Fisher. No idea on what to do for Ford or Hamil though.
What a good left-wing, pro-tax zealot Lucas is(n't).
Why the “Star Wars” creator’s decision to sell his film company to Disney was a savvy move.
Jimmy from Boardwalk Empire could be a decent Solo
He looks turrible because his face had to be reconstructed following a 1977 car accident.
In other news Carrie Fisher just purchased a $10 membership to Planet Fitness.
She'll need a hell of a lot more than that.
Not even Tony Horton, Jillian Michaels and Billy Blanks combined could save this.

Latest rumor is the writer from Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3 has done a treatment for the script for Episode VII
And in a piece of news that suddenly has me interested in this, Lawrence Kasdan (writer of Empire) has signed on to write the second film in the planned trilogy. Writer of X-Men: First Class and its sequel will do the third film.
Disney is actually serious about these movies. In two weeks they've put in more effort than Lucas did with the prequels.
This should make fans of the original Star Wars trilogy VERY happy indeed - Deadline are reporting that both Kasdan (writer on The Empire Strikes Back) and Kinberg could well be on Disney's radar to script the next two movies in their planned trilogy..
I hope the new lady in charge of LucasFilms handles Lucas the right way. He needs a lot of construction paper and big, bright markers. Set him in the corner and pay someone to clap their hands and say "Way to go Georgie!"
Now with a PhD in Applied Llama Physics...
That job was always for Rick McCallum. Guy was a huge yes man for Lucas on the prequels.
it's so dense
Well since it would be a Disney movie I'm thinking Justin Beiber as Luke and Miley Cyrus as Leia. Not sure about Han though, maybe Patrick Dempsey.
