At this point, they would use Daniels only for his voice. Something seems wrong about shoving a 70 year old guy into a suit like that.
I dunno. Depends on the old guy. Some 70 year olds absolutely deserve that treatment!

Although what I think would be interesting would be how they would handle the decades of "Expanded Universe" stories and "canon" and other elements that most fans have "Accepted as canon" into account. Since really while Clone Wars is sorta kinda sticking to SOME of the established EU canon, they're also making up stuff as they go along too. Or simply redefining things.
I think it would be best if they adhered to EU continuity as best they can and only deviate from it when they absolutely have to.

So even if they go back and do a Pre-OT movie with Obi-Wan on Tattooine they could always acknowledge that Mos Isley was an "armpit" compared to Mos Espa and that's why Obi Wan took Luke there in the first place in the OT even though clearly in the PT Mos Espa was the "happenin" spot" - could also be that if he was trying to stay off the grid, the armpit town of Mos Isley was a better chance, smaller bars, fewer folks around - although at the same time - it almost backfired since it was so friggin small. How long did it take the Stormies to find them? A couple of days at most? That's pretty damn fast for a non Core world.
The Storm Troopers weren't tracking Obi-Wan. They were tracking the droids. It couldn't have been too hard to follow the droid tracks to nearby sandcrawler tracks. Afterwards, it's merely a matter of torturing Jawas.

See this is the problem. A lot of fans think and are convinced the Emperor's inner circle aren't human. Others don't, and the reference materials are often little help and conflict with one another if you've spent much time with them.

We need more consistency among the printed reference materials, online sources and the Expanded Universe to keep things a little straighter than they usually are.
Naw. Continuity is easier when everything's fast & loose.
