Don't mock Mark Hammil. He's a really nice guy. And I've seen him in Sushi Girl, it's a great little genre and he does a great job at being a creepy bad guy.

Hey now. Nothing beats the first time you fap to The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia.

Yeah, dude is alright. I've always wondered how his residuals for the three films worked out. That, or I guess he sucking dicks behind the Circle K for rent money all through the 90s.

In all seriousness, this man was born to play The Joker. In fact, I think his role as the Clown Prince is probably what will define him more over time in the entertainment world. He built an incredible cult following in that role.

Mark Hammil has actually worked pretty constantly in theater and Movies. He really does like working in Animation now, however. He enjoys the informality, but how seriously the actors take their jobs.

Uncle George was actually very generous with points to his main people on Star Wars, and Hammil did really well for himself. Alec Guiness came back for Empire and Jedi because felt owed Lucas for making him very wealthy.

I think it's a generational thing. I love B:TAS (and he was fantastic in that role) but he'll always be Skywalker to me because that's how I first saw him as an impressionable 8 year old budding sci-fi fan.

/I wouldn't mind seeing the original cast playing older versions of Luke, Leia and Han (maybe even Lando) - not as main characters but certainly in supporting roles, "passing the torch" as it were to the next generation of heroes.
 
2012-11-01 04:48:59 AM
I think we can all agree the last person you want to discuss a "Star Wars" plotline with is George Lucas unless you happen to run into him in 1979.
 
2012-11-01 04:50:27 AM
I hope they don't bring anyone back.
But it might really tie the room together if they have just a couple. And we are talking cameo/limited scene and nearly no presence in the plot (Luke excluded from this).

(I'm not considering any of the novels/whathaveyous written thus far. No one will want to see a story that's already been told. They might borrow a theme here or there, but whatever fan book you love? It's not going to happen.)

Luke?
If they do, Hamill makes the most sense for any of the humanoids. I think it could be done well. Good guy or bad guy is up to the writers, but would give a sense of continuity. The guy is a good actor and he might be key to making the difference between complete failure/abortion and an excellent concluding trilogy.

and if Luke is there we gotta have...
Ghost of Yoda!
Yes damn it. If a man with a particular set of skills gets to whisper warnings, and Old Ben gets entire scenes walking around, I don't see why the last and best Jedi Master can't be a major role.

Chewy?
He's getting old, even for a wookie. But they can live longer. Doesn't seem like a smart move though. Unless he's all gray and president of tree-land or something. Even still, seems wrong.

Bringing back C-3PO just seems wrong.

Bringing back R2D2 seems the most appropriate of any of them. In fact, I'll say this one is a must.

Han?
Maybe if it's Ford getting blown up in the first scene, outside of that, no way. Most of our hearts are still broken over Indiana Jones, a double whammy could have nerds everywhere jumping off the nearest tall building.

Leia?
Sounds like a bad idea. But maybe they could pull it off as a mentor/politician/military leader type of thing.

Billy Dee Williams?
Fark yeah, if we are considering ANY of this, why the hell not...?

Of all the original actors, Mark Hamill is the only one I can really see as reprising his role and making it work.

There will be Jedi in Part VII, Part VIII and Part IX. I will gladly take your money if you want to bet against there being Jedi in a new Star Wars movie. Also I have many bridges to sell you. It is also highly likely that Parts VII-XI will be set after Parts I-XI. It could be set before Part I, but that would be really weird and confusing. So I think we can safely assume that it Part VII will follow Return of the Jedi. It will have been about 30 years since Return when Part VII comes out.

It would make perfect sense to cast Mark Hamill, who is in his early sixties, as the elder statesman of a newly reconstituted Jedi Order. It wouldn't necessarily be a role with a lot of screentime, but Mark Hamill is old enough now to portray a Luke Skywalker in the role of mentor, which can be a very important role. And that would be a lovely synergy with the movies that currently exist, especially if he dies in Part VII (as Obi-Wan dies in A New Hope and Qui-Gon Jin dies in The Phantom Menace).

Part of the reason why this would be so excellent is that unlike Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill hasn't had much of a career in front of the screen since Star Wars. He's still Luke Skywalker to most people, while Harrison Ford is Harrison Ford. If he reprized Han Solo (a role he's been trying to escape for decades), you wouldn't see Han Solo appear on screen. You'd see Harrison Ford playing Han Solo. If you saw Mark Hamill pop up in a new Star Wars movie, you'd think "Wow, Luke Skywalker got old."

I'll just leave you with this image:

We open on Tattooine. It's Jabba's Palace, but something is different. It gleams slightly more. It seems cleaner. As we approach we see dozens of young men and women gathered in ranks in a palace courtyard. Young Jedi training. We look up and see an older man in the robes of a Jedi, looking down on the would-be Jedi below. He seems sad. Then a golden robot rushes out onto the balcony, and with an urgent voice says "Master Luke! Master Luke!"

I spoke with George yesterday and he laughed and said "All these Internet haters can suck my has-been, washed-up, no talent, bad director FOUR BILLION DOLLAR cock."

Then he wiped his ass with more money than any of you will ever see and whispered "They'll still go to see the next one. Cha-ching!"

wow that last bit was just fan fic fan dreamy....are you on the "my little pony the motion picture fan fiction" board as well?

so..you are Kathleen Kennedy? or are you one of Lucas' fugly adopted fat kids?
no..none of those..
are you a "hollywood insider?"
nope.

so your weirdo 'speculation as edict as question as wager' looks not only childish but quite insane.

there is a Star Wars Fan Stalker hotline / helpline you can call in Modesto I'm sure... 

the number is probable something like heeelllppp meeeeee.

you have no idea what they are going to do. "they will have Jedi..." uh...yeah...they will have spaceships and light sabres as well...

I'm thinking that episodes VII-XI could bridge the gap between the EU's timeline and the Legacy era. We could see how the Galactic Republic falls and becomes the new empire. Jedi and Yuzhan Vong fighting side by side. It could be interesting because I don't think they'd want to mess with the EU's continuity too much.

No, but considering all the other changes Lucas has made to Episodes IV-VI, can you blame him for wanting to make sure?

Apparently, Miyazaki would agree with you there.
 
2012-11-01 07:52:15 AM
Important questions: Is this going to pick right up after Episode VI with Luke still doing action sequences, or will he become the Obi Wan to some young buck? Will it be entirely CGI or live action? I could totally see Hamill doing the voice of Luke if it is.

Hamill told Kevin Smith in an interview that his deal was that he got every piece of Star Wars merchandise. Ever produced. The others thought he was an idiot for making that deal. He says he has entire warehouses of shiat.

Didn't Mark Hamill do an episode of Twilight Zone where his character lost everything BUT the toys he collected over his lifetime? And after being down and out for a number of years, sold all those collectibles for a zillion dollars?
