They should go for the gusto and recast the OT characters, and pick up right where ROTJ left off.
Luke - no idea, let me think about that
Han - crazy idea, how about Michael Rosenbaum
Leia - don't need to think about this at all, it's Jennifer Lawrence
Lando - Anthony Mackie
Dennis Quaid could play Han. He looks more like Harrison Ford now than Harrison Ford does.
Fanboy casting -- Nathan Fillion as Han.
I knew the Fillions fans would chime in, but I'm sure Disney will be looking for moderately or very big movie actor names, Jennifer Lawrence and Anthony Mackie are the type they'd go for. Rosenbaum has done some movies, I'd say he's the lower range of movie notoriety to be considered for such an incredibly high profile role that everyone will be freakng out over, for good or ill.
And they'll look for actors around age 25 for Luke & Leia, and 30-35 for Han and Lando.
