Unless that got the tech right and it looked perfectly realistic, then it would be a definite waste. Nothing's wrong with using CG to de-age Hamill, though.

I would be down with the de-age tech. They don't need to go as drastic like they did with Bridges. They aren't going to make them look 20. If they can de-age them by ten years and maybe in a partnership with practical make-up effects. It would look real good. Also I don't think Luke, Leia or Han will be the main stars for VII. I believe it'll be one of the Kids; Jaina, Jacen, Anakin or Ben.

As for Casting.

Jacen - Jeremy Allen White
Jaina - Emma Roberts
Anakin - Dakota Goyo
Ben - Asa Butterfield

Josh has that d-bag presence, so I think he's best suited for Jacen.

Yep. They had to de-age Bridges about twenty years. Hamill probably won't need to go quite that far. Have him lose weight, take a decade off with make-up, or CG if they absolutely need to, and we're all set to go.

Yep. I'd love that.

That could be what they do since they made it a point to call in Episode VII in the press release. Why would they want to pass up more hype by not doing something like that?

What about Damian Lewis as an older Luke in his 30s-40s?
He's got that calm/comforting but also powerful look the character would have.

Just being realistic using deaging technology is very expensive and potentially distratcting. See Magneto and Xavier from X-men 3. Tron didn't use and all CG Bridges but a digital face replacement, Ie another actor played the part and tried to match Bridges performance. His head was then replaced with a digital head of Bridges. From practical standpoint it seems like a an awful lot of extra work in an already vfx heavy film to perform head replacements for 4 or 5 main cast members. I don't care how much money or how far the technology has come it seems like a bit much.

Plus compared with the new Star Trek which was very well received recasting doesn't seem to be a big issue if they choose the right cast. They could have used the elaborate techniques to have Kirk and Spoke portrayed digitally by Nemoy and Shatner but of course that would've been distracting and pointless. Replacing an actor is not as big a deal as some make it out to be. It all boils down to what story they tell.

So far it's clear they are not going to follow any plots already established in the novels. So casting the solo twins etc seems pointless. If they move forward they could use the original actors as age appropriate versions of themselves. If however they are only moving a few years from Return then just recast. But do it with the same care that Abrams took with Star Trek. Find actors that will try to embody the character properly with resorting to simple imitation. The new Captain Kirk and Spock are so spot on. Actors can be effectively recast. Just saying.

Expensive... for Disney, that is not a problem. Potentially distracting... X-Men 3 was made a few year's back and technology has improved since then. I don't see a problem, plus it's not like they should de-age Hamill as much as they did to Erik and Charles in X3.

Joel Edgerton would work as an older Luke as well. If they take the character to a more grissled history.

The point was that if they were willing to do a complete overhaul of Bridges for several scenes in T:L (a movie with very heavy effects as was), they'd probably be OK with adding slight CG de-aging effects to Hamill. Plus they have a bigger budget.

Nobody's arguing they'd do the full head for the entire movie.

Most people have lol. I'd be fine with him. I'd like to Liam Hemsworth as a Jedi. As for recasting the originals I'm not a fan of that but will post my picks soon as I have them lol
