Ok then. Your choice would be having people in their 50's and 60's playing 20 and 30's, or a recast. And does anyone think a Han Solo not played by Ford would be acceptable?

This is tough for me to hear, because ever since I've seen the original trilogy when I was a kid I wanted to see what happened to Luke after Jedi. The expanded U provided that & that's what I want to see on the big screen. I want to see the Jedi Academy, Thrawn, the Palpatine clone, the evil Luke clone, Han & Leia's twins, etc.

I see no reason that couldn't be done properly. I've been thinking that ever since Tron Legacy came out & I saw what they did with Clu. By the time episode 7 is upon us the advances in CGI since Tron Legacy should mean there's no reason we shouldn't be able to see extremely convincing versions of young Hamill, Ford & Fisher along with their voices & true older selves on screen as well. Makeup alone can already accomplish that in both directions. Look at the makeup in X3 with the young Xavier & Magneto, look at the makeup in countless other movies that make actors look younger or older than they really are.

I guess I just don't see those actors' current ages as reasons why some of those stories couldn't be done.

Either way, if they make a sequel trilogy without Hamill, Ford and Fisher, I riot.

There's absolutely no reason the OT stars can't appear in ep 7 at their current ages.

Good point

Less of a good point, IMO.

Lol, I was speaking strictly from an FX standpoint. The movie was clearly the worst thing that's ever been on the big sreen.

Why would they adapt post movie novels? Star Trek never did.

Timothy Zahn gives his 2 cents about what role he thinks his books would play into a sequel trilogy.

Except the technique was so expensive that they could only afford to de-age one character. That's the reason why Tron had to be completely covered up and played by a stuntman instead of Bruce Boxleitner. The problem isn't a technological thing, but a time and manpower thing. The technique has to involve going over the film frame by frame, changing each frame involving the actor being de-aged individually -- that's why it's so expensive. Technology won't have advanced enough within the next few years to eliminate that problem
