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

Been said already, but come on, the choice is obvious. This is Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier-level no brainer.

hdhale: No recasting bullshiat. Come up with a way to let the old actors have one last curtain call (or two) and then hand off the franchise to new actors and new characters.


Jaws_Victim: Shut up everyone who thinks they know anything. Let the actors play the character as old sages and come up with new, exciting characters we can like just as much as the originals. If they are recast I will not see it. The original trilogy is perfect, and it needs to stay that way. I am not against a sequel if it's done right.


Mr.Poops: I wouldn't mind having an old Han, Luke and Leia. Just give them minor recurring roles throughout the new trilogy. I mean, weren't they a huge part of saving the galaxy? And if you need to take 5-10 years off each of them, we have the makeup and technology to do that. Do it tastefully in a way that makes sense and it could be AWESOME for longtime fans of the series.


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.

Representative of the unwashed masses: Ed Finnerty: There is only one person for the new Han Solo and that is Dane Cook.



or how about the WWE Films version...

Han Solo - CM Punk
Leia - AJ
Luke - John Cena
Lando - Kofi Kingston.

It's really weird to be 45 years old and finding myself kinda sorta EXCITED about Star Wars again. Damn you, Disney!

Whoever that blue, red eyed Grand Admiral is...."We are everywhere. We will take back the glory of the Empire and there is nothing you can do about it. "

*camera pans right, reveals old ass Han Solo holding a gun to his head *

"Chewie, start up the Falcon."

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.

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.

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.

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."
