I don't know what that means.

Seriously, they just look older. Have their characters be that age and you're good.

Terrance as Lando is epic. Nice choice!
An actors. real age and the character they play are irrelevant as long as they look the part. Been like that since the dawn of acting. IE Dustin Hoffman was 30 in The Graduate and Jon Cho wqs like 36 player Sulu in his 20's in the new Star Trek.

of course I don't want Han to be player by a boy either.

He looks like a cross between Hamill and Christensen. If they're going with the Skywalker lineage, I'd be happy if he got the part.

You're right. And he's too boyish to be Cade, but he could easily be a Skywalker.

Sebastian Stan is actually pretty dead on for Luke

(I mean, with him already being Bucky idk what his availability would be, or if they want to re-use him)

Not feeling him, tbh. It's the eyes, I think. Hamill had big puppy eyes.

I thought you were referring to James Marsters at first, who played Spike on Buffy.xD I was thinking "Geez man! I assume Whedon is directing then?"

And Zoe Saldana .... She just needs to be in

Whoa, didn't even see that we had a SW forum. Here are some ideas I posted in another thread:

Luke Skywalker: Michael Pitt
Han Solo: Jason O'Mara
Princess Leia: Emily Blunt
Lando Calrissian: Terrance Howard
Obi-Wan (ghost): Gary Oldman

If we're going to be seeing appearances from aged versions of Luke, Leia, and Han, I would be sick if we got anyone but Hamil, Fisher, and Ford.

Put em all on a diet/exercise regimen for the next year and it's all good.

It would be amazing to have them back together, even if they're not the main focus.

In regards to the older Actors. This is Lucas Films. I would Imagine that they would use the same tech in Tron Legacy to de-age Hamill, Ford and Carrie. Except with Lucasfilms ILM Now being a part of Disney. That Tech would get a huge boost. So recasting may not be necessary.

Well... that's a possibility I guess, but Tron: Legacy took a lot of flack for that approach because it went back and forth from looking very realistic to cartoonish. Even if the tech has improved drastically since then, it might not be the best approach to take.

at that point you might as well just make it a CG movie, and have the original cast do the voice work

Like Robert Zemeckis did with "Polar Express" and "Beowulf"?

Awww, yeah. Now I want a scene where Luke battles the Rancor completely naked, which various objects strategically placed in front of his dong.

Old crew doesn't need to be replaced....they are to icon to change actors.

But i think the guy who played Thor would make a good Jedi.





Maybe even Luke or Hans son.
