Although the word on the street is that it would be new scripts, not novel adaptions.


No idea who they'd cast. DiCaprio really wanted the part of Anakin but he also wanted creative input, so we were stuck with Christensen.

I just hope it's not a bunch of ****ing Disney kids like Selena Gomez.

Not really, Dude. I'm not really "into" anything nerdy although I liked A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back as a kid but hated Return of the Jedi.

I first came to Hollywood alone and when walking around on the weekends, noticed newsstands everywhere. I just happened to stumble upon the first Zahn/Thrawn book in 1993 and purchased it. I've read that trilogy and his follow up dualities since but I could never get into the other authors much.

I assume creative input = read the script and said "Holy shit, this is terrible."

I'm not even sure it got that far. All I can recall is that DiCaprio spent a weekend at Skywalker Ranch and once Lucas denied any input whatsoever from DiCaprio, he was out.

Outside of the scenes with Jango and Obi Wan, AOTC is unwatchable for me.

I once made up my mind that I was going to read every SW story in chronological order. Not a chance. Some stories were pretty decent, others were just bad bad.

I'd recommend the Thrawn saga to anyone who ever even just kind of had a liking for Star Wars. Good stuff. I've also read that the Rogue Squadron stories are pretty good....

I seriously grimmaced every time Padme and Anakin had a romantic scene. It was that awful.

Even the Jedi free for all on Geonosis couldn't save that film.

Just to be fair, the scene where Anakin finds his mom and he starts slipping to the dark side was good. Needed way more of that.

One of the best parts of the Plinkett thing is footage of Lucas brainstorming (if you can even call it that) with his various sycophants and underlings. They laugh at his stupid jokes and agree with everything he says, but the pained looks on their faces really say it all - they know he's out of his ****ing mind, but won't argue with him because they like getting paid. I guess Leo wanted no part of that crap.

Well, it would need to be older actors. 35+ IMO.

Here are some off the top of my head picks:

Luke - Sam Worthington



Han - Jon Hamm



Leia - Amy Adams




It's too bad Patricia Heaton is 54 ****ing years old because 10 years ago she would have killed as an aging, yet fiesty Princess Leia. She's certainly short enough, at 5-2. Carrie Fisher was about 5-1.

With Hamill, Ford and Fisher still alive, Disney would face an enormous backlash if 7-9 re-cast them as actors.

I could see them re-cast in 2020 and beyond, but with the scrutiny and negative reviews that Episodes 1-3 received, Disney will need to hit a home run with 7-9 or face massive brand failure.

The only way I can see them proceeding with Luke, Leia and Han's characters in the short term would be through animation and voice actors and even then, it would probably be restricted to television.

Yeah, that was pretty awful, too. It looked like a bunch of extras super-imposed on the image of Geonosis, which itself, was cheesy looking, IMO.

Off the top of my head, I'd go with Matt Damon, Daniel Craig and Teri Hatcher.

Do you really think so? I mean, Hamill and Fisher have not aged well (at all) and Ford is 70. Unless they're just sitting around Jedi Council style, how the hell would you pull it off?

Teri Hatcher would be a terrible choice. She's almost 50, and really not a very good actress at all, IMO.

Matt Damon could nail Luke Skywalker, but I'm not sure I like having such a HUGE NAME attached in such a lead role. It would be weird.
