Just drop the big 3, keep their best image of the saga, use another era.

I thought it was known that Ford was meh about his role, just llike Carrie...though she is a bit....unstable anyway.

Carrie Fisher is not pleased with Leia because she was never able to get out of the shadow of this character.

That's what I wish they would do.

Did nobody learn the lesson of that new Indiana flick?

Ah but nostalgia = cashmoney. I bet most hardcore fans that are getting there hopes up are gonna consider the returning actors one of the biggest mistakes of the films in retrospect. Callin it.

The cocaine sure didn't help her career...

This article makes it seem like Ford really just wished to see more character development for Han Solo. It's a bit late to include that in Ep. VII, though. I feel as though trying to rework the missed opportunities of Return of the Jedi is just going to fall flat. We need to see new characters and new situations, and just learn from the mistakes of earlier films when it comes to characterization.

I agree about new characters as they can help to develop existing ones.

Well her drug addictions sure as hell didn't help with landing future roles.

Edit: Someone beat me to it.

This. Honestly, I watched the original trilogy again a few weeks ago and I am less excited after watching them than I was before. It's been decades and whole 'skywalker' story has been done to death. Something new would be much better.

Hopefully darker too where the bad guys can actually friggin AIM and kill some good guys in a straight fight. What's the point if your opponent is friggin handicapped? It's almost like watching a bunch of bullies go to work on a defenseless empire that can't even defend itself from cuddly teddy bears.
