Mark is only 61.

If he got his ass off the couch he could have a cameo as geriatric master Skywalker.

Take it FWIW:

http://www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture...s/%28page%29/2

While some fan sites speculated that the new movies would be based on stories already tackled in the novels written about the “Star Wars” universe after “Return of the Jedi,” E! News said a Lucasfilm source told them that the plotline of the new movies would be “original.” E! writer Leslie Gornstein writes that according to her source, the new films “will literally be nothing you've ever seen or read before from the Star Wars universe.”

So, one would assume, that means no Luke. No Han Solo. No Princess Leia. No Mara Jade (the assassin Luke falls in love with and marries in the novels, in case you were wondering). It sounds like it would be all-new characters, an all-new plotline.

--------------

If this report true, I don't understand why Disney would call it Episode 7-9. It should be a new trilogy with its own name, like Star Wars: The New Empire, or whatever.

If they will release Star Wars VII, I will take back everything bad I have to say about this. I do withhold my right to say it sucks later.

Maybe the bastard can turn to the darkside, like he did in Dark Empire. How cool would that be?

Holy crap, what a horrible painting.

Did the dark side make an arm grow out of Luke's lower rib cage?

A common side effect of hatred.

So apparently, 7, 8 & 9 weren't a secret to Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/10/3...de-vii-disney/

So you met with George this past summer and he told you about his plans to make another trilogy?

Yeah, last August, he asked Carrie and I to have lunch with him and we did. I thought he was going to talk about either his retirement or the Star Wars TV series that I’ve heard about — which I don’t think we were going to be involved in anyway, because that takes place between the prequels and the ones we were in and, if Luke were in them, he’d be anywhere from a toddler to a teenager so they’d get an age-appropriate actor — or the 3-D releases. So when he said, “We decided we’re going to do Episodes VII, VIII, and IX,” I was just gobsmacked. “What? Are you nuts?!” [Laughs] I can see both sides of it. Because in a way, there was a beginning, a middle, and an end and we all lived happily ever after and that’s the way it should be — and it’s great that people have fond memories, if they do have fond memories. But on the other hand, there’s this ravenous desire on the part of the true believers to have more and more and more material. It’s one of those things: people either just don’t care for it or are passionate about it. I guess that defines what cult movies are all about. We’ll see. I’m anxious to know what’s going on, but the main story [yesterday] was the sale to Disney. I have mixed feelings about that, but they haven’t done badly by Marvel and the Muppets and Pixar. It’s one of those big decisions that at first seems unusual but then the more you look at it, the more it makes sense.

When you had lunch with George, did he get into any details with you about where the story would go in the next three films, or whether you would have a part in them?

Well, no, he was just talking about writers and the fact that he wouldn’t be directing. I guess he wanted us to know before everybody else knew. He said, “Now you can’t tell anybody!” [Laughs] Even now I’m nervous about saying anything. I just don’t know!

It's amusing that Harrison Ford didn't come to lunch.

He hates Star Wars.

Apart from this bit...



I actually think the original Jedi Knight game could be turned into a kick ass movie, or maybe even trilogy.

Jerec was a very cool villain.



Quote:
Jerec served the Empire as an Inquisitor for many years. However, Jerec was in truth devoted only to himself.

One of the most powerful Dark Jedi in the Empire, Jerec continually sought ways to increase his power and take the Empire for himself. One of his chief obsessions was the Valley of the Jedi on the lost planet of Ruusan, which contained vast amounts of trapped Force power.

After the Emperor's death at Endor, Jerec formed a band of seven Dark Jedi to seek out the Valley. He was able to find the legendary well of energy, and reached incredible heights of power by basking in its aura. However, for all his power, he was defeated in combat by Kyle Katarn, a novice Jedi who fulfilled an ancient prophecy, regarding freeing the Valley's trapped Jedi and Sith spirits. When Katarn offered him his fallen lightsaber in a final act of mercy, Jerec made one last attack and was struck down in the heart of the Valley.

http://www.movieweb.com/news/luke-sk...he-new-trilogy

The news about Luke Skywalker appearing in this new trilogy as a 40 year old man comes from George Lucas biographer Dale Pollock, who was allowed to read the treatments from Episode 7 through Episode 12 while working with Lucas. In speaking with The Wrap, he spilled a bit about what he knows.

"It was originally a 12-part saga. The three most exciting stories were 7, 8 and 9. They had propulsive action, really interesting new worlds, new characters. I remember thinking, 'I want to see these 3 movies."


The writer, who had a falling out with George Lucas some years ago, is not able to say much more about the overall story of this proposed treatment that the creator of the franchise has been working on. He did mention that it revolves around Luke's later-in-life exploits, and that the Disney deal includes these 12 chapters in the Star Wars saga.

"They will need an older Luke Skywalker. [The new] Writers will absolutely take his outline. That's in part what Disney bought."

I don't know. I guess the writing wouldn't be bad, but I don't want Lucas having any hand in their productions.
