    Umm, somebody has to play Yoda; but isn’t Ford a little tall for the part?

    Hans Solo? The famed Austrian smuggler?!

    Did Han sign first?

  6. Cowicide says:

    I’m wondering how will Lucas “change things”?

    AGENT: “Sir, at this point the possibility of successfully getting a watchable out of this franchise is approximately 3,720 to 1!”

    FORD: “Never tell me the odds.”

    Will Episode VII be set in a nursing home?

    Will this be Lucas’ new hairstyle for Princess Leia?  Sorry, couldn’t resist doing this ‘shop…

  10. How did Carrie Fisher hear Lucas’ direction through that hair?

      Direction? Ahahahahaha!

      I guess that you never saw the films.

      • feetleet says:

        You’re right. Shorty-robe was probably Hamill’s decision.

        I do remember Ewan McGregor mentioning how after a scene he told Lucas – “George, I’d like to do it again, I’m not satisfied with my delivery”, but George said “It’s fine.  Let’s move on”, and that was that.
        One can rationalize that Lucas was distracted, visualizing the post-production even as the actors were in front of his face, but still…

    wtf – no chewie, and what about anthony daniels? surely the droids are around!

  12. Mitchell Glaser says:

    Do you think Luke will kiss Leia in this one?

  13. Daneel says:

    If they’d done this in ’99 (sadly Lucas was otherwise engaged raping our collective childhood, IIRC), they could perhaps got away with basing something on the Thrawn Trilogy. This long after the original films they’ll either only be able to appear in cameos, or this will end up being a rehash of Space Cowboys.

    Why is this post tagged Star Trek? Obama joke?

    Han:  Just … hit that button!
    Luke:  What does it do?
    Han:  It … reboots.  Hit it!
    Luke:  I can’t reach it!
    Leia:  Try harder!
    Luke:  I can’t!  I’m caught!
    (Console fuses, sputters, smokes)

    Luke:  What do we do now?

  15. toyg says:

    Before Indiana Jones 4, I would have been excited about this. Goddammit, Ford, you used to read the frigging scripts! If you can’t be bothered, at least get Pacino’s agent!

  16. Lemoutan says:

    Fisher had confirmed her reprisal in an earlier interview.

    Not to flog a dead burger or anything, but I believe this remains a matter of some dispute.

    • niktemadur says:

      Ah, that was Carrie talking.  This time (same day?) it’s different, read the text below the headline:

      George Lucas more or less spilled the beans…

  17. Art says:

    Enormous potential here to kill the entire franchise. But on the bright side, maybe we’ll all finally get over Star Wars.

    BB has the best geeks on the webtubz.  

    <3

    Yeah, this movie is gonna be full of lens-flaring suckitude.

    Finally!  About time we got to see Star Wars performed on rascal scooters.

  20. jimh says:

    Well, I never thought I would beg for MORE CGI in a Star Wars sequel…

    Blah. Deleted.

    Please….just no more Jar Jar or Ewoks.
