As with my neighbors furniture, I'm still not up to speed on all the jokes floating around out there.


I've seen the joke done around here a few times. Heard it in some recent podcasts and read it on a few movie websites.

Put me down in the Harrison Ford will return camp. The guy is at a point in his diminishing career where he'd do anything for a nickel.
Because he's so strapped for cash?
He has 3 films in post production for slated 2013 release and another in pre-production.

Not sure I'd call that schedule "strapped for cash".
*facepalm*

Harrison Ford 'open to the idea' of returning for Episode 7. Take that as you will.

I was just going to post that info. Hamill and Fisher too...

http://www.thestar.com/entertainment...-han-solo-role

Between the 3 of them- big directors more than likely wanting to be a part of this, and Disney commiting to the purchase, I really bet it would follow the storyline about 25 years after RotJ, the rise of the new Jedi Order, New Republic, their kids- a fall to the Dark Side...

So exciting!!! I bet we get a mix of the old characters for the old fans, and new heros to take their place for all fans!

Saying that Okona was cooler than Daniel Jackson made me think he never saw SG1, there.
I watched i think S1 then i got bored by it.
TBH, I would have dropped that show long before Season 3, if my nerd friends hadn't told me how good it eventually gets... And even when it gets good, it's still full of fillers that almost make it not worth it. ALMOST.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I'll say it: I don't want Han Solo. Luke, yes. I can see him as an Obi Wan character... but characters like Solo... they aren't meant to grow old. They are meant to burn out, to die tragically, to... well... not grow old. I would rather have the Solo from the OT than what they come up with.

UNLESS, it's something like he and Leia have divorced and he's some crank on a planet living in the hulk of the Falcon.

I just...don't TRUST that they won't come up with something interesting, they will try and make Solo what he was in Jedi--which wasn't great--and it will look and feel odd.

Better to NOT have something and wish I did, than get it and really wish it had never happened.

They should throw a curve and make Han a crazy hermit living in the desert. We see this character in a hood and robe and go in for the reveal. The hood drops and it's Han Solo??????!!!!!

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Harrison Ford is the obvious one of the original actors to return, a la Leonard Nimoy, to pass the torch to the younger actors who are going to be playing the brand-name characters.

Ford is a bankable name. Hamill and Fischer aren't. Being bankable compensates for the wrinkles.

I can see them going with a scenario like, Ford as Old Han, reminiscing on his deathbed about the terrible and dramatic events in the long ago past...as a framing device to stories of the younger (recast) characters...

Then you get maximum value of all the brand names: Star Wars, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Harrison Ford (who is the only actor who is also a brand and therefore valuable to Disney). And you don't scare away the young audience by making them look at a bunch of codgers for two hours.

So we know from the start that, whatever happens, Han doesn't die. That's okay if he's the only one whose fate is known. Maybe everyone else croaks in the course of the three movies, or go dark side or whatever.

If we're talking crazy, then he needs to carry a burlap sack that has the head of a certain wookie friend in it. That he talks to.

But I am serious: the more I think about it, I don't want Solo. And I love Han Solo. But...

So it's the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles?

He's got his own planet,
Although it's kind of wild.
Wookiees love him.
Women love him.
He's got a winning smile!
Though he may seem cool and cocky,
He's more sensitive than he seems,

Chorus:
Han Solo,
What a man! Solo.
He's every Princess's dream!
