I love Timothy Zahn's books too

Seeing an actual movie of anything Thrawn related is highly unlikely any time soon...I think we'd be in the territory of seeing the trilogy remade first and actually done well and successfully, and that, well, It's possible, but I don't think we're ready for that yet.

One thing I do keep hoping that is more likely is that whenever they finally get to making that Underworld series, that we'll get appearances from some of the characters in those books in them (which they did say they want to do).

Ralph Fiennes will be good, while I want to see him play a Sith.

Mara Jade=Kate Beckinsale.

Kate sadly would be a tad too old. Wouldn't mind seeing her as Say Mon Mothma.

Remeber guys, have to find actors in their late 20s for Luke and Leia. Have to remember at that point, both of them are about 22-23 maybe 24 and han is what 30?

I think they are like 23-25 at the end of ROTJ which would put them around 25-27 by the time Thrawn comes in.

Kate still looks young(28-30). I think she could play Daala as well.

What do you think about Ralph as Thrawn?

I see someone like Michael Caine playing Pellaeon.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

Oooh Talon Karrde.....

Yeah I suck at this game, I never know who would be good at playing a character. But just thinking of Talon Karrde on screen makes me happy, lol. I found a poll online that voted for who should play each role but I didn't agree with any of them :P http://star-wars.suvudu.com/2011/09/...-revealed.html

Boo, I say, boo. But I guess I could see Josh Brolin as Karrde.
