You know I'm just messing with you, right?
You know that Cad Bane is actually a Duros, right?
He's a Duros?
Where we're going, we don't need roads Duros.
Ford rumored to be cast as Han Solo
Just don't cast Shia Labeouf as Anakin or Jacen
In other words: RIP Han Solo.
Yeah, it's all over reddit now, too.
Also "lol" at the fact we'll be getting all those meta "Han shot first jokes" that the EU has only just managed get out of its system all over again.
Harrison gets a big paycheck and to finally get his wish after 30 years. I just hope they have things for these older actors to do. Nostalgia is fun but it's also a killer. Seeing Bridges reprise his Fynn role in Legacy was AWESOME and COOL, but the character also did pretty much nothing and then blew himself up at the end.
In other words if your gonna have these characters, make actually be characters in your movie. Not just props.
I'm gonna go ahead and believe that Arnt is going to go for a big family story in the next trilogy, so hopefully their will be no issues.
Welp, I don't need to see that movie now.
Well, I guess that's it for the post-OT EU then.
RIP 4 ABY-138 ABY
I'm both elated and depressed by this news. Yeah, Han Solo in the ST, played by Harrison Ford. Oh no, I'm going to have to see him killed off most likely. *sobs*
You want the Sequel Trilogy? Then you will have to make a sacrifice for it!
...I'm not sure if I mean Han Solo or the Post-RotJ EU. EU would hurt a lot more. In 300 ABY everyone is dead anyway. It's all a matter of perspective.
Pretty much this. If there gonna be in it at least have them do something rather than just fan service.
As for Ford I hope it's better than Indy 4 or Die Hard 5 or any of these other memory destroying films where old actors try to reprise famous films from there youth
Well, if we're being honest, I'm not sure I want the ST, not that it matters. I would've been happy to just continue to read about the characters I cared about and not bothered with more films. Obviously, Disney did not ask me before they bought LF. The nerve...
For what it's worth, Ford's presence would (remember: unconfirmed) be good news for the EU--we could then rule out at least the first thirty years or so after Endor. Hell, with the "medical technology" excuse, 2013 Harrison Ford could easily play 50-70 ABY Han Solo if they were so inclined.
Yeah, that's my thought- *if* true, it (kind of) gives us a timeframe for the ST, which probably works better the later it's set.
I wonder how many older actors would appear in Episode 7. My guess is that they would bring in a clone trooper from the Clone Wars:
Fordo, c. 50 ABY
"The Confederacy will rise again!"
"We fought for the Republic, Cody"
"Oh. Really? Could have sworn we killed Jedi in that one. Where are my teeth?"
"Use mine. They are all the same. But quiet now, they are showing the Revenge of the Sith documentary"
"Anakin, you are breaking my heart!"
"If you are not with me - you should be. Let's remarry"
THE END - edited for seniors
Well I think its a little early to be saying "RIP"
Mara Jade deserves a vote! Legacy Comics deserves a vote! The New Jedi Order deserves a vote! Waru deserves a vote!
This is Lit - it's never too early to freak out.
Well now I know! Hehe. The EU is definitely in a state of uncertainty there is no denying that...
