Han was only 29 years old at the time of A New Hope
so they have to get somebody that looks at least somewhat like a younger Harrison Ford or else it won't be too believable. I'm trying to think of a really good character actor with chops who sort of resembles Ford in the 1970s but I'm drawing a blank....anybody got any ideas?
As for a Yoda film, remember that he said in Empire
that he spent 800 years training other Jedi, which means that he became a Master before he was even one hundred years old. I'd like to see a movie set 800 years before the prequels and OT at a time when Yoda is a fresh, new Jedi Master taking on his very first Padawan apprentice. It'd be interesting to see the Republic centuries before the era of its corruption and downfall in the Prequel Trilogy. A Yoda who's only in double digits in age might be a very cool thing to see. If he's that powerful and quick in combat at the age of 875 then how amazing would have have been at one-tenth that age?
