now dont jump and attack me right off the start, we all know hollywood remakes can never live up to the original version (read "they're bad") but i started thinking today WHAT IF they were remade.. who would they have play who? and i figured id make a thread on what i thought and what everyone else though! so enjoy!

luke skywalker: zac efron

people are probably going to hate me for this but........ hes not that bad of an actor. he could have that same boyish charm that mark hamill had in IV and show the serious side later on. i know he is a huge star wars fan and when the live action tv show was rumored to be in production (is that still in production? wikipedia says it is but ya never know with that!) he said he would be really really interested in playing luke.

others considered: daniel radcliffe? shia labeouf? not really sure with this one

leia organa: jennifer lawrence

shes got two things going for her
1.) shes very, very attractive
2.) shes a great actress. she was nominated two years ago i believe for best actress for winters bone

she would be able to play leia perfectly i feel. shed be able to be good looking enough to be eye candy yet have enough acting skill to really deliver a good job. if you look at all the young top actresses right now no one is even close to her.

others considered: hanna mangan-lawrence. shes relatively unknown, if anyone watches spartacus: vengeance she plays seppia, the roman girl. so far in the series she seems pretty good so she could play a good leia. again this is a tough role to cast

obi wan kenobi- ewan mcgregor

i think he did in a pretty good job in the prequels as kenobi, a lot of people would want a bigger name actor possibly in this role, i mean come on its obi wan! but there arent too many actors i could really see playing old ben

han solo- brad pitt

when star wars was coming out they went and got a great actor who was extremely good looking; hence here we get the same thing. brad pitt is good looking enough to make the ladies swoon and enough of a bad *** to make the guys wanna be him. this one to me seems like the best one i could come up with. and of course in the remake han would shoot first.

others considered: none

lando calrissan- will smith

i personally love will smith, i think hes great. i though perhaps denzel but i feel like denzel is a bit too old for lando.



obviously there are many more very important roles but these were the ones i could think of off the top of my head. so what do you guys think? would you recast anyone in these roles? also who didnt i include that you would cast? and remember we all love star wars, so dont hate

Not flaming, I'm just saying my opinion that, it'd butcher the franchise. Like those Resident Evil movies; abominations.
