Show the Empire building. You can even cast Ian McDiarmid as the Emperor again. More Vader, with lots of James Earl Jones.
I think there is plenty of opportunity in the Star Wars universe for Vader, the Emperor, the Imperial Army, Corellia and so on.

But with that said, it would be just as easy to not include Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia and Luke but still have it kick major ass.

IMO, they should open up new avenues and not re-hash the same characters over and over. It's a large galaxy that needs exploring.

My StarWars boner is growing with every new development...I trust they aren't building towards a big letdown, too much investment at this point.

I don't think they spent $4 billion dollars, just to **** it up.

The Star Wars universe has been ripe for continuing adventures since "Return of the Jedi" wrapped in 1983. With CGI as it is today, there's no reason why it shouldn't be exploited for decades.

Nothing wrong with working the old characters and plotlines into new stories. As long as it's done tastefully because the way it's done will be debated for a long time...just no more disappointments, please.

They need more Wookies. There is a Wookie Jedi in the Clone Wars cartoon. That would be awesome. /fanboi

I might be in the minority here, but I hope they try to do less cgi and more costume design...though cgi had advanced quite a bit since 1-3.

I think they need to first create some "goodwill" with the audience by producing films that explore more of the Star Wars Universe, even if they're set between 4 & 6.

I think that recasting Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker would be a major mistake at this point. That would feel more like a "reboot", which really isn't necessary.

Well, in order to create new and exciting worlds (like Avatar did, for example), CGI will be absolutely necessary.

I'm just happy it's out of George's hands. Everything seemed too familiar, which is silly in a scope of a huge galaxy.

There is a wookie Jedi in some of the Outcast series books. The name escapes me at the moment.

If they're smart...they'll use Darth Bane and go 1000 years before the Battle of Yavin.

It sounds like they took the old Supershadow Episode 7 nonsense and published it (Vader was cloned from his hand and resurrected).
That doesn't work at all, because if they cloned him...the clone wouldn't be his broken body.

I would say the problem with those movies wasn't the universe, or the CGI, it was the scripting, acting and direction. Which would be why I'm also thrilled it's out of George's hands.

Yeah, this.

Star wars was always pretty silly, but the original trilogy works, because they work as movies. They have things like character development plots that make sense (Why would a trade federation want to block trade?). Dialog that while is cheesy, at least has some charm. Han Solo saying "I know." when Leia says she loves him is a million times better than Anakin and Padme's "I love you more...No I LOVE YOU MORE" horseshit. George Lucas was extremely lucky, most of all because he had people that would tell him when his ideas sucked. Without that, you got the prequel trilogy. There's plenty of directors who grew up loving star wars, who will want to make a great movie and not just cash in.

To date, it's actually been the opposite: No one wants to touch it.

Matthew Vaughn is like tenth choice. He'll do fine, but I doubt anyone of note will want to direct until the new tone has been established.
