    They were both good in Heat:)


    So who else is on the wish list for the new movies. Fassbender as Thrawn, Walton Goggins to play a red neck criminal again

    Michael Arndt is writing the first one, he wrote Toy Story 3, so he has an excellent pedigree for tone and action too I'd think.

    He wrote Little Miss Sunshine too.

    He did indeed, although that may not be the best reference for some here. I think Little Miss Sunshine is a great little film, but the more cynical among us may not quite appreciate it so much.

    I enjoy both. TS3 is great, so I actually have a glimmer of hope.

    Alex Guiness wasn't thin and Hamill doesn't look bad at all for that equivalent role imho.
    Alec.

    I think Disney knows how much is at stake here, how people perceive the prequels and will do its upmost to make sure that this is a very good film.

    I know Disney is about money. But the company will know that if it wants to recoup the money it has paid for the Star Wars franchise it has to win back the hearts and minds of fans.

    I'm expecting VII to be a love-letter to fans of the original trilogy, I only hope that's not actually to the detriment of the story. However I'm delighted Fisher, Ford and Hammill are returning. Mostly Hammill, I feel he really deserves to play that character again and perhaps bring closure to Luke's story.

    Luke didn't have closure at the end of ROTJ?

    In terms of the Vader arc yes. Perhaps closure was the wrong word. I just feel we've not seen much of Luke Skywalker the Jedi. The original trilogy was about the end of his childhood. But it'll be interesting to see what Luke the man has achieved.

    I thought he spent the rest of his days banging Ewoks.

    The key with this new trilogy is that it mustn't try and extend the story from the first trilogy. This has to be a new arc.

    And in that sense, it's damned if it does, and damned if it doesn't, as if there's no Vader or dark side or whatever, nobody will give a fuck.

    I think bringing Vader back would be a great idea. Obviously not Anakin, but someone in that suit. It's so iconic.

    The dark side will be back for sure. I'd put money on it being based around Han and Leia's child being a young new Jedi, trained by Master Luke, his uncle. Luke will die at the hands of the new Sith Lord, Yoda will appear as a ghost. The prequels were such a mess, I think this one will almost feel like a reboot and will probably mirror the story of A New Hope quite closely. That's where I think they'll go with it anyway.

    I think it would be a horrible idea. It would be the lazy man's way of introducing a villain.

    But this is Disney, I suppose.

    @kalel Every Star Wars film has been about the battle against the dark side, why would this be any different?

    Also, Darth Vader is dead, I doubt anybody is expecting him to magically reform.

    Also, why is everyone assuming only Luke and Leia would have off-spring? Would Luke really commit himself THAT much to the Jedi code? considering he's the only one?

    I think he was really bad for more most of the 80s and 90s, but then had a bit of a resurgence in things like Donnie Brasco and Insomnia, where he tones it down a bit.

    I don't know if he's really done anything good since, but I'm sure he still could.
    His best stuff of recent years has been theatre and TV stuff. He still has the ability and presence when he wants to.

    Hehe, I was just about to say...

    Funnily, he's not even credited as an actor for the film on IMDB. I know he plays himself, but still.

    He hasn't "acted" in over 10 years, Righteous Kill was a bitter bitter dissapointment.

    He probably paid imdb to take him off the list.

    Lucas had a big say on the original trilogy, and they were fine. As long as he isn't directing I think this will be alright.

    Be interesting to see which motifs and beats JJ decides to hit again. I think it could be cool if the end of the first film had Luke's kid sitting holding a Vader mask. Someone will have a bad feeling about this, probably right after the crawl after a Gungan walks by.
