    My sources at LFL have stated that we will see at least two returning characters from TPM:

    1. Jabba the Hutt. Hopefully, they'll have the CGI perfected and he'll look better than he did in TPM.
    2. Greedo. The young green kid that was fighting with Anakin in a deleted scene will be back. He's become a "shoot first, ask questions later" bounty hunter. GL has promised that his scene is sure to become a fan favorite.

    We can assume that we'll see more of Tatooine, since both of those characters were seen there. No word on whether we'll see more of Watto, Kitster, the two-headed announcer, or pod racing. We can only hope.

    Aw, two villains. I love it!

    I'll definitely be excited to see how they pull of the Jabba character. If they go CGI, I hope they can portray him correctly.

    What about Watto? There should be Watto if you're going to have Tatooine characters!

    He's got to be extremely old by now. He even started visibly aging in AotC.

    Has anyone heard about Joel Edgerton & Bonnie Maree Piesse coming back as the Lars'? You would assume their characters would be back, but after searching the imdb, I couldn't find them listed with the production.

    Wouldn't it be cool to see Luke doing some podracing!

    I think Leia should get married and maybe she runs a space restaurant or something.

    What the hell does Jabba have to do with anything? :confused:

    Maybe he's a fanpleaser?
    I think it's a good idea to put in characters we already know, even if they are not of much use. We already know and like them, it will be great to see them again, so what other reason for their appearance do we need? None!

    Is Palpatine in this one?
    I hope so.

    I heard that he might have some officer dudes representing him. Or maybe those red guards will actually speak. [face_thinking]

    I think there's a thread around claiming he won't be back.
    I wonder how Lucas want's to pull off that one though. I mean Plaps is Teh Villain of the other movies. how could he get on without him?

    I don't think Bail would leave Yoda to rot on that planet. And sooner or later somebody with a scanner will come along and find the remains of Yoda's ship. He could hop aboard while they salvage...
    But I rather think Bail will get him to train Leia.

    TBone sez "Kitster will meet his untimely death, much to the chagrin of fans everywhere" in this one.

    About the Lars: I heard Lucas wanted to cast Phil Born was an elder Owen Lars but he recently died so I guess he will have to go with Joel again, alas with old age make up. Hey there doing for Ewan...

    Is Dexter coming back? And what about Aurra? I hear she settles down with Boba Fett and they have some kids.

    What about the Wookies? I'm a big fan of the Wookies, but that Chewbacca character seemed to just be thrown into Ep III. Hopefully, he was in there for a reason and we see more of him this time around.

    Rick McCallum stated that Boba Fett will appear, and will serve as the new template for Palpatine's army in the new trilogy.

    I heard Yoda contacts him telepathically, and he has to go rescue him off the planet he crashed on.

    Re: Wookiees

    I've heard that the budget for costuming has been cut in half for the subsequent film(s). As a result we might get a little short on the wookiees.

    I think that'll ruin some of Jabba's mystery though. He was so cool in TPM, and learning more about him will make him stale and lame. Like pouring salt on him or something. :p

    I'm most interested in seeing Jango Fett's clone grown up. There's no way he's going to be as awesome as Jango was.

    No word if Pooja Naberrie will be back? I hope she leads an underground resistance group.
