The original 3 films are that iconic films that can never be touched but Lucas mistake was starting New Prequels that was less then what he made.

So why not just finish what you started with the Prequel movies.

Lucas mistake was connecting bad movies to a flawless set of originals.
I don't want remakes but it makes the most since to just tell the whole 12 stories over . Where there is not such massive gaps in age of actor time.

Remaking 4, 5, and 6 would be just insane and super anti-intelligent.

I think the best course would be to kill off Leia and Han and Luke is thought taken out and the focus is the children of Luke and Leia and maybe Luke Apprentice trained them somewhere other then tatooine.

What is perfect though? I'm sure if you try hard enough, you can find problems with The Godfather or Jaws.

The Empire Strike Back is pretty much a masterpiece along with simpler original. That's how you make genre films right and have been studied. written about for decades. I can only think of nitpicks but no real narrative or acting problems. Return of the Jedi might be the one movie with narrative problems though (slow 2nd act, etc.)

Well if the OT has problems than I can't image what PT has then.

Yeah, it's absurd to bring back the original actors that made the characters loved by many.

Remaking any SW movie is asinine in my book. Hell, it's cinematic sin.

Indeed, I think the same about recasting. This isn't just any other franchise, its Star Wars.

Yes, it is absurd given how they are and how some of them have not aged well.

Come on, if Luke and Leia are supposed to be in their late 30's or early 40's in this new Trilogy of films. Does it really make sense to bring back 60 and 70 year olds to try and reprise their roles from the early 80's??

Ooff!

Now if the characters in the new scripts are supposed to be in their late 60's or 70's, then sure.....they should be brought back.

We don't know what Michael Arndt/Disney have planned. That one biographer dude said they would be in their 40s, but that was old Lucas info.

It's not absurd for those of us who aren't all hung up on looks and who ever said that they're supposed to be in their 30s or 40s in this? We know NOTHING about these movies, don't assume it's going to be Dark Empire or whatever.

I'm totally against recasting. If the actors aren't up to it, I'd rather just have a story about new characters than recast the old ones.

The idea of Luke firing up his lightsaber for one last time after years of living as a recluse or Han Solo giving a devil may care smile to Chewy before flying into a battle he knows he's too old for is just too cool for recast to happen.

Yeah. Like I said, if Luke, Leia, Han, Lando are actually in their 60's and 70's in the scripts that Arndt is working on.....then I'm all for them coming back.

If they are supposed to be in their 30's and 40's....then no.

I'm not assuming anything. I'm saying if characters from the original trilogy are supposed to be in their 60's and 70's in these new films, then they should be brought back. If they are supposed to be younger.....than recasting is the only way to go.

No digital FX work should be done to make them look younger like what they did with silly Tron Legacy.

My Hope is we have some type of Whill alien or even see the Whill Planet in these movies. Its just would not be a Star Wars without some Wise looking Yoda cousin.

Well, no s**t. We're talking about the probability of them being around ObiWan's age in ANH, so as to pass things on to the new generation..

I can't see anyone else playing Luke, Leia, Han, and Lando other than Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Billy Dee Williams.

I heard R2D2 doesn't want to come back. He's tired of being typecast.

I'm just going to jump into this conversation--please, please, no--do NOT put the original cast into the new movies. I assume that, if they get the original cast, then the characters will, of course, be in their sixties and seventies, and I don't know about all of you, but I've been waiting since I was ten to see Luke, Leia and Han back in action, and seeing them in their senior years is NOT what I had in mind.

We've already had three movies without the original trio, and (by Star Wars standards at least) they tanked. The term, "anticipointment" was coined based off the prequels, so it's obviously the characters, not the universe, that's really the heart of the franchise.

I don't care about the actors; I care about the characters. I want to see what's happened to them after Return of the Jedi...but not thirty-five years after! What a gap in character development that would be, and for no other reason than to get back...who? Hamill, Fisher and Ford because they resemble the characters (and not by much anymore, to be frank). There are so many better actors out there who could pull this off.

Learn from the 2009 Star Trek and Batman; if done right, recasting can work out great, and really refresh a franchise.
