Re: Han Solo Will Return
Mark and Carrie did fine as Luke and Leia. With Luke there was enough warmth and nobility that made him interesting and not boring. Fisher made Leia a very strong female-type that we kinda lack even today.
I think their likeness as these characters, along with their iconography, are different from Star Trek because, let's face it, Star Wars is an anomaly.
"For me, I hope people take away when they see 'The Force Awakens' is the sense that in the most ordinary life, the most extraordinary things can happen."
"Star Wars is a western and fairy tale as much as anything else."
