Who would you have play the Main characters.......

Han Solo = Robert downey Junior
Luke Skywalker = Chris Pine
Princess Leia = Jessica Biel
Obi Wan = Ewan Mcgregor
Lando Calrisian = Don Cheadle

Personally I would like to see it happen, Im a die hard Star Wars fan and the originals will always hold a place in my heart, but Star Wars is timeless and i think would be amazing with todays technology and the right actors...

Star Trek was awesome, some said it could not be done, but what a job they did...
Total Recall

At the end of the day, certain films have been done and the originality is drying, reasons to make new and different films becomes impossible.

I think there is room for a Star Wars remake considering its 35 years old now.

I'd rather not....some movies like Star Wars just can't be remade at all.

Not unless you got some clones of the original cast lying around.

like others said there is no reason to ever remake the OT.

The OT is about the Story. The Story is iconic and so are the characters the thing is if you remade it what would you change? and why what would be the point?

The movies you named are not about the story but more about the characters and the in the case of Total Recal the special effects. But also notice they didn't a shot for shot remake they changed the story drastically.

The only other series I could think of that I would never want a remake of would be Lord of the Rings. That is another movie where they got the story right, the special effects still look good and the actors are great. There is nothing you could do to improve it.

Now instead of doing a remake what they should do is just new movies in a different time period.

Some things are best left unchanged. Anyone other than a cocaine addicted kerri fisher sporting the slave girl outfit would, well..... ruin it. That cast had chemistry. I cant see anyone other than Harrison Ford playing Han Solo. Han had that swagger, that smooth talking smuggler angle, i dont think anyone else could pull that off. I wouldnt suggest changing a thing, maybe as technology improves they can re d0 more of the crude sound fx in the film, but honestly i wouldnt change that either.

The new Batman trilogy and the recent Spider-man film weren't remakes, they were reboots. There is a big difference. Star Wars is way too iconic for a remake.

But given the recent propensity of the studios to remake movies, it would not be beyond the realm of possibility that someone at 20th Century has already approached Lucasfilm about a remake .

what i'm I thinking Dude they already did a remake of A New Hope in 2006

It was called Eragon. It was litteraly a beat for beat remake of A new hope. The only thing they really changed was the setting. They made in a straight fantasy world instead of a sci fantasy world. But other then that EVERYTHING is the same.
