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.
I wouldn't mind seeing the original actors around again, but only as background, supporting roles for new protagonists.

And yes, it would be nice to feel intimidated by the bad guys, aside from just Darth Vader.

To be honest, its probably for the best in my opinion. Everythingi read so far sugests that this old actors might have a part in the new triology just for the sake of it. If thats true then it already bodes badly for the script. It shouldnt be dependent on this actors/ characters in the first place.

Well, I remember how JJ used Leonard Nimoy in the new Star Trek and thought it was incredibly well done. He wasn't a part of the action, he was part of the storytelling that showed the audience that the lore was saying goodbye to him and moving on. I suspect that the same is going to happen with the "Big 3". It will also help with the flow of continuity of the grand story Arch since this an Episode VII, which by the very nature of the title, declares itself to be a continuance of the saga related to the events trigger by the Skywalker legacy. This will help maintain a much more natural transition into the third generation of players within the grand saga. Of course, I realize that, too, is just speculation.

I think Harrison Ford has a very respectable opinion on Han Solo and Star Wars.

Essentially, I'm "grateful" for the experience but Han Solo has no "depth" and is "uninteresting" to play as an actor. I would add, "uninteresting" to play as a "good" actor.

This is essentially true of the majority of the characters. Lucas developed archetypes based on mythology and great literature, they work to tell the overall story but are, for the most part, very uni-dimensional.

Just take a wait and see approach on any info about this movie

We are going to be fed a lot of bull and hype in order to keep our interest and build a better awareness of the film

I don't think the characters are uni-dimensional at all. If anything, any time this stuff comes up in conversations I'e had, character development is one of the strong suits. Yeah they're archetypes, which I honestly find neat anyway, but even without factoring in the EU we see Han's character evolve from an I'm-just-out-for-myself outlaw to a general in the Rebel fleet.

The movies are also bound to include, if the rumours are true, at least one of the Solo children in some capacity, which would give a chance to see Han Solo in a new light, as a father/husband.
