I'm saying "romcom" because if Disney intends to flood the market with Star Wars movies, it makes sense to target them at different demographics, which means that at least one of them should be made with girls and women in mind.

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?

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Oh, yeah. Didn't even think about that guy. Sam could potentially work in the role. And you wouldn't need to worry about a slightly younger Chewbacca because Peter Mayhew is always draped in Wookiee makeup, so a Sam-Peter team might be feasible.

I'm trying to recall when Han was booted out of the Imperial Academy for disobeying orders and freeing Chewbacca from slavery....the graphic novel makes Him look like he'd reached his early twenties by that point and the fact he was in the Academy would also point to an age between the end of his teens and his early twenties, which means the film could be set 7-10 years before A New Hope.

I'm not sure Leia is the right character for that. I wouldn't mind seeing a romance between two young Jedi, or between a Jedi and a dark side user.

There's fanfic for that. If one wants to make money off Star Wars, using the characters that people know and love is a good starting point.

I agree, I'm just not sure that Leia really fits for the tone of a romcom. What was she in A New Hope, 20? She didn't seem like she had much time for romance...and even if she did I don't think a romance in the rebellion would be able to be a romcom. It would have to be more of a romantic drama. Unless you set it when she's 16/17, but that depends on how long she's been a part of the rebellion.

A romantic drama makes more sense to me, and it could end with her joining the rebellion. The only other option is to set it post-Jedi which either means splitting her and Han up or killing Han off.

Respectfully, who cares about that kind of things except a handful of Star Wars fans?

Not exactly on topic, but George Lucas filed some paperwork on his $2 billion in Disney stock, sparking probably erroneous headlines that he was selling it all.

Hollywood Reporter link

"George does not currently have any plans to sell his Disney stock," said LucasFilm's Lynne Hale. "This was a registration of ownership of stock in conjunction with the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney. It was a required filing."

Re: More Star Wars films announced

So when would you set a Leia romcom, post-ROTJ?

I would set it in some unspecified, who-the-fuck-cares, out of continuity time.

Yoda IMO has the best merchandizing capabilities for Disney and as a character to add to their theme parks he's perfect for younger children.
I'd go with Artoo and Threepio for merchandising myself.

I'd check out a Han Solo or Yoda movie, but really don't care much about Boba fett.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

I really like Jabba the Hutt and his species, but I don't think they're capable of carrying a two-hour big-budget movie all by themselves. Jabba and his fellow slugs are much more enjoyable in limited doses....if they were on the screen every few minutes or so it'd get tiresome fast.

Unless it's this guy:



Ziro's like a mix of Sydney Greenstreet, the sheriff from Cool Hand Luke and Truman Capote.
