After all the rumors about Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford & Billy Dee returning, I have come to believe that they will cast all of them if the actors are willing. Supposedly Fisher was being sarcastic when she said she would return but I don't buy it. She will. Disney / Lucasfilm know the majority of fans really want to see the original cast. Why else would Lucas have met with Hamill & Fisher long before we heard any news? Im sure there will be many brand new characters that we will grow to love, but I honestly believe that most, if not all of the main OT characters will return. Here's my list of Cast characters that I believe have an excellent chance of returning for Episode VII: - Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) Mark Hamill - Leia Organa (Jedi Knight & Queen!) Carrie Fisher - Han Solo (Leader of the Rebel Alliance) Harrison Ford - Lando Calrissian (Rebel Commander) Billy Dee Williams - Wedge Antillies (Commander of the Rebel Fleet) Dennis Lawson - C3-P0 (owned by a new young jedi) Anthony Daniels (at least his voice) - R2-D2 (owned by a new young jedi) He will play himself. They don't need Kenny Baker anymore. - General Chewbacca Peter Mayhew, or could easily be a different actor. - Clones / Stormtroopers or possibly Boba Fett Temuera Morrison - Qui-Gon Jinn (Force Ghost) ...This is the only non-OT character in this list but I still think he could be back. Liam Neeson - Yoda (Force Ghost) Frank Oz voice - Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Ghost) Ewan McGregor - Anakin Skywalker (Force Ghost) Hayden Christensen Also... - Admiral Ackbar - Warwick Davis cameo. ...maybe Wicket?? - Jeremy Bulloch cameo. But It's impossible for him to be Boba now. - Ian McDirmid cameo. I really don't think the Emperor is coming back.
