Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

The extra box office draw they'd have by including Princess Leia would far outweigh the minimal real-world risk of hiring Carrie Fisher.

Oh, and here's a possible director I've not heard mentioned: John Ross.

Hamill will be the easiest to get back.

Fisher has stated she wished she had turned down Star Wars.

Ford has become a grumpy old man whenever the topic of Star Wars comes up.

I never said she hadn't been. But I wonder if her past history will influence if Disney would consider Leia in the sequels.
Why would they care, again? I'm sure they've hired people with more recent issues with substance abuse.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

My guess is that Ford won't come back and that they'll have to write Han as having died in the years since JEDI ended, but you never know...if Disney and Lucas dangle an enormous enough paycheck in front of Harrison's face anything's possible.

It's not like he's getting any good roles anymore aside from Indiana Jones, and the last one of those was four and a half years ago. He has nothing to lose really except his squeamishness about Star Wars. There are times he reminds me of Shatner during the "Get a Life" period.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I really think Ford's tough talk regarding Han Solo was in the context of an A-list actor who could call the shots. I dare say Morning Glory and Hollywood Homicide humbled him somewhat, and the proof of that is Indy 4.

I do think he's the least likely to return, but I wouldn't at all be surprised is Hamill, Fisher and Ford were all back.

People underestimate Fisher. She's a good actress and a very smart and witty lady.
I'm sure she is, but it doesn't matter. I'm smart and witty too, but I won't play the villain of a major summer blockbuster movie.

Just what I said: there's no way she's going to play the main villain or the protagonist.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Well, a co-protagonist alongside Luke, any new heroes and possibly Han if Ford agrees to return. But no, I don't see her headlining as the main hero either.

Can't disagree. I see her more as some respected aging diplomat and secret Force-wielder.

When she slowly pulls back her Jedi hood and reveals her identity the audience will gasp and cheer.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I know I'd let out a whoop.

32 years since the last time we saw Leia Organa? Fangasm.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

In all honesty, I'm about 100x more excited about EpVII than I ever was for EpI, given the likelihood of old characters returning. It's a childhood dream come true.

It's the exact opposite for me. Nostalgia is the Anti-Life Equation.
