It's odd, I don't mind seeing an old Luke and Leia, but I really don't like the idea of seeing old man Han.
Because it's a horrible idea.

Which is funny because of the three of them Ford has probably aged the best.
He has, true. But, I don't want to see Han Solo as an old man. There can't be anything but tragedy there. Either he's a burnout, a man child, or a camp version of what he was.

Solo is the type of character that burns out in one epic moment of redemption. He doesn't die of old age.
No, I think the proper thing for Solo is that he is a retired high ranking military officer. Han and Leia should be the patriarch and matriarch of the republic.

What is important for this new series is that even if the old cast returns, they be relegated to secondary roles allowing for a new generation to shine. That fits nicely with the themes of the movie, and would be a nod to the old fans without taking away anything from the younger actors.
