ROTJ was actually the first SW movie I saw (I was very young and my older sisters and/or parents watched it a lot), so I knew going into ESB and ANH that Vader was Luke's father.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Oddly enough, I didn't see the original movie when it was new back in the summer of 1977. I was just two and a half at the time and my parents weren't entirely sure about this new sci-fi film they'd been seeing all over the place, so I think they just decided to wait.

Pixar to make a Star Wars Film?

Well, this could be interesting if true.

It's probably no surprise to anybody with a pulse, but she's in.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

It's going to be a bit surreal to see these characters back on the Big Screen™ again after all these years.

Didn't Fisher already come out with pretty much the same revelation a while back, but her publicist squelched it or something?

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

So would this finally be considered an official confirmation?
What is the longest period between when an actor first played a character, and their last appearance as that character?

Leonard Nimoy's Spock?

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

There were about 18 years between "Unification (TNG)" and Star Trek VI and ST:2009. This will be a 32-year gap when Episode VII finally hits theaters.

Probably Paul Newman in The Color Of Money.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

The Hustler (1961) and The Color of Money (1986): 25 years

ROTJ (1983) and Episode VII (2015): 32 years

It does make for an interesting trivia question ... any other nominations for the largest gap between screen appearances? It'd be neat to compile a list.

  1. Ford/Hamill/Fisher (SW): 32 years
  2. Newman (Hustler/CoM): 25 years
  3. Nimoy(ST): 18 years

Keir Dullea's appearances as Dave Bowman in 2001 and 2010: The Year We Make Contact happened sixteen years apart (1968-84).

Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken - 15 years between movies. True fact, when the sequel was announced he still had the original costume and it still fit.
