Yea I knew that. But can he give a good Luke anymore. What will change about the personalities of all the characters? Is Han still gonna be classic Han? I'm sure he will but its fun to think about.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
I loved that he was the animated Joker.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Hamil fits old Luke pretty good. Older Luke has seen some shit, and its taken a toll on him. He will have to lose some weight, but its doable.
Hearing a bunch of crap about how its going to be about their kids
I hope they show the power he's garnered along with that toll..
Yep. Which is a good thing IMO.
Yea so they can turn it into a bunch of disney bullsh*t
This has fail written all over it.
I disagree, Disney generally doesn't deal with fail and the originals were campy and made for toys and still kicked ass.
Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
Its the face. Not the body. On a strict regimen he could shed that weight in a couple of weeks. Plus he'll be wearing a jedi robe, not a slim fit suit.
No. Just because it;s their kids, doesn't mean that they're actually kids. The old cast is too old to have young children. The youngest they will be is late teens probably. They didn't bring JJ Abrams on to make Hannah Montana.
This thread seems like a good place to put this. This would be pretty cool to have, if I never wanted to get laid again.
Deserve got nothing to do with it...
Can't wait for a report we haven't already talked about yet.
There might be a new hope for those yearning to see the offspring of the Skywalkers and Solos on the big screen.
That's gonna be awhile.
Also, it's JJ Abrams... dude is notoriously tight-lipped about his projects.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Next big story we'll hear wont be until July. They will announce something at Comic-Con.
Star Wars: Episode VII
Definitive Joker voice actor Mark Hamill — who also apparently has some connection to Star Wars — says that nobody, including Harrison Ford, has actually signed on to appear in J.J. Abrams's Star Wars movie:
"They're talking to us. George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we'd be interested. He did say that if we didn't want to do it, they wouldn't cast another actor in our parts – they would write us out. … I can tell you right away that we haven't signed any contracts. We're in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed — on their end, not mine. They're more busy than I am."
He also says he thinks it's likely the new Star Wars movie will focus on the next generation of the Skywalker clan — something that's been rumored a few times, but still shouldn't be considered official:
"I'm assuming, because I haven't talked to the writers, that these movies would be about our offspring — like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character. … When I found out [while making the original trilogy] that ultimate good news/bad news joke – the good news is there's a real attractive, hot girl in the universe; the bad news is she's your sister – I thought, 'Well, I'm going to wind up like Sir Alec [Guinness]. I'm going to be a lonely old hermit living out in some kind of desert igloo with a couple of robots.'"
Finally, he discusses his hopes for the new movie's tone and feel, which includes a return to the original trilogy's use of practical effects:
"I said to George that I wanted to go back to the way it was, in the sense that ours was much more carefree and lighthearted and humorous – in my opinion, anyway. And another thing I'd want to make sure of is are we going to have the whole gang back? Is Carrie and Harrison and Billy Dee and Tony Daniels, everybody that's around from the original [returning]? I want to make sure that everybody's on board here, rather than just one...
I hope they find the right balance of CGI with practical effects. I love props, I love models, miniatures, matte paintings — I'm sort of old school. I think if you go too far in the direction of CGI it winds up looking like just a giant a video game, and that's unfortunate. … If they listen to me at all, it'll be, 'Lighten up and go retro with the way it looks.'"
Marc Webb and Bryan Singer tweet the latest images from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past. The writers of Skyfall discuss the future of James Bond. Plus Once Upon a Time, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, and much more!
I read that Yesterday, I hope he plays a minor part, definitely not the leading role but the classic wise wizard type role.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
If they are willing to write out the part if they don't sign on, then its definitely a minor part.
Don't act like you wouldn't do it.
Thats awesome, If I lived anywhere close ot one of these classes and had an extra 10 bucks I would do it quite often. I think the force is with me
