So the guy who didn't even want to do RotJ (wanted Han to stay frozen), and then wanted Han to die at the end of RotJ, now wants to do the sequels?


"You're way too farking old to be doing this."

"I know."
 
2012-11-09 01:27:17 PM  
Yes. I want the original actors to play their rolls, interspersed with new characters.

An older, wiser Luke, Leia and Han would be a good thing.

Nathan Fillion as Han Solo. He's been channelling Harrison Ford for a decade now anyways.

I'm assuming that the film will be 20 or more years in the future so older people will work. Digital imaging will be able to make them young ( kinda like a better version of Jeff Bridges in Tron:Legacy) for flashbacks or necessary story elements that weren't highlighted in the original movies.
 
2012-11-09 03:20:51 PM  
Assuming the character's in either way, I'd rather have Ford over any other actor in the world. Even in a Crystal Skull desperation play from him.

Set Episode 7 in the timeline of the new Fel Empire. Luke is old, has a son with a grandson on the way. He is about to pass the torch of the Jedi onto Ben Skywalker. Jaina, his niece, is the Queen of the Fel Empire as it starts up to replace the Galactic Republic. Han and Leia are settled in as only one of their children remains. The Falcon is tucked away in a Republic hangar somewhere.
 
2012-11-09 04:19:24 PM  
Having the old actors back in supporting or cameo roles would be great. Hand off the heroics to a new generation.

But if they want the old characters to be central to the action, as if it picks up the story immidiately after RotJ, recast please.

Luke should be an anti-hero. He turned to the Dark Side because his kid died or something but the current Jedi Order is threatened by the new Sith Order that no longer have the rule of two and Luke "comes out of retirement"...Sith surround him....Luke ignites red lightsaber.

My guess is that Ford will only do it if Solo and Chewie get huge, meaningful character arcs and are killed at the end of VII (a la Alec Guinness in IV) and then Fisher and Hamill will carry the series through the same happening for either Fisher or Hamill on VIII and then for the other in IX.

Whedon could definitely pull it off after his treatment of Coulson in "Avengers."

Consider that Ford and Mayhew are now 70 and 68, respectively. Both will be 79 and 77 when IX hits the screen in 2021...not to be mean, but they may not make it that long....or, like Connery, would just want to retire.

Fisher and Hamill, on the other hand, are around ten years younger and may have bit more stamina for the long haul.

With Justin Beiber as the new up-and-coming Jedi apprentice and Lady Gaga as the sassy Princess Nectara, it might just work.

Article makes a good point.
Did we want to see a 50 year old Michael Keaton in Batman Begins?

That said, I don't like any of the choices he gave. I think you'd need to go with unknowns in this case. And whomever Han Solo is has to realllly be Han Solo. Not an interpretation, you gotta nail it or else the whole thing will be off.

It has nothing to do with the movie or screenplay (even though those sucked too). He just looks old as balls. You could see on his face that he didn't give a rat's ass about any of it. If that's the same passion he brings to another character he hasn't played in 20+ years, then no thank you.

Unlike the prequels (which, from my at-the-time somewhat privileged vantage point, I could tell were going to be a disappointment MONTHS in advance), I actually have a modicum of hope (a new hope, if you will), that these will be done right. Those Pixar mofos know how to polish a story.

DaWormyPimpsta: Old Harrison Ford wasn't the problem with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Craptacular Hackery.


He wasn't the only problem, but yes ... he was a problem. Mainly the problem is that Harrison Ford sucks at acting and always has. He's let his good lucks and his smile and natural low key charisma (bordering on a coma) do his acting for him, but now he's a dittering old man and without the shiny veneer he's a distractingly bad actor.

DaWormyPimpsta: Old Harrison Ford wasn't the problem with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Craptacular Hackery.


Yes it was. There were a multitude of other problems too (many much bigger than him), but you could tell he just didn't care. Half the time he seemed to be staring off camera at the fat paycheck sittin in his chair.
 
2012-11-09 05:03:19 PM  
They want to have a credible villain for SW 7 right? In the opening moments of the movie, have Luke, Leia and Han fighting their way off of a planet and one by one, they get picked off. Luke, doing the heroic sacrifice thing stays behind batting away blaster bolts with his lightsaber until there are too many and he goes down. Cut to the Falcon where Leia senses her brother's death and cries out in mental anguish not realizing that blaster bolt got her too. Moments later, Han goes to check on her to find his wife is dead. Falling into a Heroic BSOD, Han rams the enemy's ship destroy both the Falcon and the other ship in the process.

THIS please; using Tron-like CGI to de-age Hamill, Fisher & Ford would never work in the long haul.

The one thing that has me a little worried is the tendency for scifi movies/series nowadays to go full-on 'dystopian universe'. I admit, some of the darker storylines in the SW extended universe books left a bad taste in my mouth (after having grown up with the 'good-guys-win-or-are-at-least-redeemed' motif). Imagine how bitter someone like Leia might be if - in her senior years - two of her kids are dead, her marriage is on shaky ground & she's left raising a granddaughter. It's definitely realistic, but that's a pretty sad ending for a 'hero'. I'd be perfectly happy if the new movies just leave most of the EU stuff out. But that's just me - I don't own the storylines or have any creative input whatsoever.

That said, no matter what movie they make, this will be me on opening night:

Yeah, there's a difference.

Old Han Solo can still man a spaceship and be witty and charming and shoot guns. He doesn't have to run around a lot.

Old Indiana Jones...yeah, he still had to jump on things and get in fistfights and run a lot and basically do a lot of things that old people shouldn't be doing.

Jeebus, Luke looks like Yoda.

If they don't recast (and I've felt for years that they should), Luke should already be a blue Force ghost. That way they can make him young without it looking all uncanny valley, and have Hamill do the voice work, like he prefers.

Leia the Hutt? I don't think so.


well, she did kill the old crime boss... traditional lines of progression and all that. It could work that the hutts hold allegiance to her for that,
I dont actually expect that to happen, but it is something to consider. is all I'm saying.

unyon: Nathan Fillion as Han Solo. He's been channelling Harrison Ford for a decade now anyways.


The guy who plays Peter on White Collar strikes me as a Harrison Ford type. I love Captain Mal, but he would need to do some work to get back in his tight pants before he could play Solo.

I've got the perfect story.

A renegade group of stormtroopers take over a mining ship. Mad at Luke for destroying the Death Star, they travel back in time to destroy Tattooine. They are using something called purple matter, one drop of which will turn the center of the planet into a black hole. An aged Luke follows in his ship to try to stop it.

Meanwhile, a young Han Solo is in a bar, getting drunk and picking a fight with a Wookie.

What?

One might say, a new hope.

Now if you put Michael Bay, that asshole Lindelhof who ruined the script for Prometheus, and Shia LeAsshole near this, and all credibility is ruined. They're the movie version of the derp we just voted out of office.

I said it before

Have him get blown up in the first scene. Old space cowboys burn out, they don't want to fade away. Once more into the breach type of thing.

Maybe dying while trying to get some vital information to the Republic, which because of his death doesn't discover the threat until the 2nd movie. A familiar vehicle for the story without coming off as just a continuation of episode 6.

We aren't talking George Kirk levels of drama, but you get the picture.

This this this etc.

Star Wars was a big part of my childhood (like so many others who are now in their 30s-40s and have disposable income) so it would make sense to bring the original cast back--in supporting roles. Leia as head of the Republic, Han as her husband/spymaster (maintaining his contacts in the smuggling world), and Luke as head of the Jedi order. Leia would order about the Republic fleet, Han would have scoundrels to do the dirty work, and Luke would have jedi at his command, but the characters actually involved in the action and driving the plot would all be new.

That's my thought, anyway.
 
2012-11-09 08:48:20 PM  
despite my previous comments....

luke is the founder and new sage of the breed of the newly restored jedi order, Han and Leia have gone on an raised thier own family, the vestiges of the old empire are still intact, and still need to be rounded up and defeated.
luke never had a family, being the whole savior of the universe Jedi Jesus thing, he's now yoda II, electric boogaloo, he can come back n the third one to help mop up whatever mess that needs to be mopped up in a freand HELL YEAH!!! moment. but other wise? he's yoda now.

I'm sure this has all been covered in the EU, but I have never been assed enough to read it.

central to the story is one of the force sensitive kids of leia and Han.

but generally? old sith lords are trying to regain the ultimate power of the universe, empire or not, and it is up to our plucky young heros to stop them.

all this allows the principle three to reprise their roles with out compromising the time line, and staying in the background.

droids is droids, let R2 be able to talk or something.. all those bleeps and bloops is annoying considering he understands everyone, and everyone understands him and there is a friggen midget inside there anyways.
 
2012-11-09 09:22:53 PM  
We've already done the "Harrison Ford 80's character had a child" so we could move on to a different group of characters to build a storyline around.

I can see Han showing up to shoot someone in the head from behind in a standoff with a new major character and providing a lift in the Millennium Falcon for a brief cameo. Plenty of fodder for jokes about "Make sure there isn't an unexpected space station when we come out of this jump Chewie."

Actually, nix that. No need to harass the elderly.

Hard to say. They are no stranger to adult themes but they usually try to approach them in a nongraphic way (though not to say they avoid them)

Disney has made a crap ton of movies. When you think Star Wars, think about TRON, or 20,000 leagues, Rocketeer, Black Hole, Pirates of the Caribbean and Chronicles of Narnia. ,

All we really need to do is look at John Carter to see Disney definitely has the chops to deal with war, death, combat and all the other good stuff.
(looking back on that movie and this news, I wonder if they made John Carter just as evidence they can handle the franchise /tinfoil)

They cultivate and grow jailbait for Hollywood. And they know that is what they are doing.
Here is something I bet you don't know, they have sister companies under the umbrella that make mad bank on porn.
Disney is a big company. If the implication is they are too 'kids gloves' for starwars I don't think your understand their motivations. They will show a Jedi get his head pulled of his body in slow motion if it makes them enough money.

will they screw this up? who knows. but they as much or more than anyone are equipped to deliver the best we've seen yet out of the franchise.

plenty if you count thier subdivisions. down and out in Beverly Hills was a Disney movie after all.

but directly to your question... Tron had it's fair share of violence, and the black hole was pretty dang bleak, but, it must be remembered that the black hole was an already ongoing project that ran out of money that Disney Bailed out, then re-branded.

all the old reworked fairy tale stories were pretty bleak as well, and disney gave them all happy endings!
 
2012-11-09 10:35:43 PM  
I just realized this would be a Disney production.

You just know they'll have Johnny Depp as Han Solo, Miley Cirus as Leia, and Zack Efron would play the part of Luke. The Emperor would be a holographic head voiced by John Ratzenberger and Kyle Massey would play the part of the new Dark Lord.

The series was never up to much and the old films look remarkably dated now. Terrible acting and a shallow plot masked by primitive-looking special effects (which were of course, cutting edge at the time). There's nowhere to go but up. A decent script and some good actors might even rescue the franchise.

That's a pretty dumb thing to say.

He made his career off of Reservoir Dogs, which was an indie studio film. On the strength of that feature his producer brought the script for Pulp Fiction to DeVito's production company that quickly sat down with Harvey Wienstien of Miramax (prior to the Disney buyout) and he agreed to do the movie. Sure, Disney bought Miramax after that and prior to the film's release, but it's not like Disney the company had anything to do with the success of the film, or that Tarantino (er.. actually Harvey Wienstien) needed their filthy money to produce/market the film.

Hell, one can argue that with the exception of film distribution of a couple of notable films, during the 10 years or so that the Wienstien's ran Miramax while it was owned by Disney, they had pretty much complete creative control.

Also, your face smells like poop.

Did we want to see a 50 year old Michael Keaton in Batman Begins?

That said, I don't like any of the choices he gave. I think you'd need to go with unknowns in this case. And whomever Han Solo is has to realllly be Han Solo. Not an interpretation, you gotta nail it or else the whole thing will be off.


A few years ago some friends and I drove from New Mexico to Louisiana in a straight go, and before departing we stopped at the library to get some books on tape to listen to in the car. Someone found a Return of the Jedi radio-dramatization and insisted we should listed to that, so we did. I think it had some of the original actors... but the guy who was doing the voice of Han Solo (who seemed to also coincidentally be one of the producers) sounded not a thing like Harrison Ford's voice, and as if this weird radio drama didn't have trouble enough (it was often just a minute of shootout sound effects with C3PO declaring "Look, now they are shooting at one another!") It was really grating to hear this guy doing I-don't-know-what with his voice. At least the other actors sounded passable.

I used to be a huge Star Wars fan boy, but after the prequels, cartoons, parodies, memes, and so forth, I'm done with it. The cultural saturation has made something that was special to me into something tawdry ... as if your super cute high school sweetheart has become a monstrous plastic-surgery-addicted stripper.

I know I sound like a grumpy old hipster, and I don't care ... but I assure you I'm not that old, and I've never been hip.

/grumpy as F*CK though

I would watch Harrison Ford as Han Solo again.

/disclaimer: I liked Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
