    Do we really want t o hear Carrie talk that much? Years of smoking ruined her sexy sweet voice she had, unless they cann digitally alter it.

    Am I the only one to think of Leia and Han as not being that romantically inclined? Sure Han went from being a selfish smuggler to a dedicated Rebel but after everything settled down and the Rebellion transitioned into a new Republic or whatever, then what? I can see Han getting a wanderlust and Leia getting dedicated to her work. We've all seen what look like "happily ever after" relationships completely dissolve after either a year or ten years. Perhaps Han and Leia could have parted years ago but then through circumstances in the Trilogy, could get thrown back together. That would provide drama and weight.

    Do we have to romanticize the seven year itch? Nothing sounds more depressing than the Heroes of Yavin being divorced, and having to split time with the kids. Can't we have even a drop of happy monogamy in these movies?

    And good lord, JJ, please don't turn Han and Leia into a cliche Spielberg divorced parents drama.

    I think they will continue the love/hate dynamic between the 2, that is too important to the story to go away. Helplessly drawn to each other, but always sniping at each other; classic opposites attract type of relationship: the loose-lipped, irreverent maverick pirate that is wild about the hot princess, and the steadfastly loyal, hardworking, willful, dutiful princess that can't stand the fact that she is crazy about a bad boy.

    I am more or less a closet SW fan (never had friends that cared for it past about the 7th grade when ROTJ came out and was big), I was never the geeky type. As one who was definitely a bad boy in my younger years (yes, I had to eventually grow up), the dynamic between the 2 is near and dear to me. Good girls and bad boys just have chemistry, like it or hate it, that is the way it is.

    If they do start apart, they will not end up that way. Han and Leia are as classic of an American romance as Rhett and Scarlett; no way they are breaking that up permanently.

    Yes, unfortunately.

    Its sad though - there are some actresses of the same age and era that didn't indulge in drugs and alcohol as much and retained their beauty and voice.

    Carrie ruined herself.

    Let's not overstate the case. Genetics are a big part of that too; lots of folks that abused drugs still look decent (and lots of folks who didn't abuse drugs look terrible), and I think she isn't horrible for someone that age (lots of us don't look as good as we once did). I think with some "maintenance," she will look fine for the movie.

    They should make a War of the Roses spin-off where Han and Leia try to kick eachother out of their own house, and Danny DeVito plays the lawyer in the middle of it.

    Lets not turn Han and Leia into the crap that is the latest season of The Office.

    Or at least friggin' google search her name, so you know of what you speak. She's a diagnosed bi-polar sufferer- and lots of them self-medicate before they get real help. All of which she acknowledges.

    Correct. In fact, she was such a severe case, she had ECT.

    You think we'd be rooting for her to triumph, instead of checking her waist size and asking whether she can fit into a bikini.

    Very well said, LawJedi. =D==D= Instead of ridiculing her for her personal struggles can we not applaud her for her triumph over said struggles? Can we not welcome her back to a character we all love and wish her well for her future?

    I like this opportunity for her to come through all of her struggles and once again be a huge star on the big screen later in her life. I don't know how she feels about the situation, but I hope it all works out.

    To be fair, Rhett did walk out on Scarlett in the end, and she didn't really love anyone aside from her house. Change some of those words to "Han", "Leia" and "Falcon". Maybe also toss "Chewbacca" in there.

    I wasn't comparing the actual sequence of events in the 2 romances. I was talking about the stature/significance of the romances in American popular culture.

    I find the idea of Leia and Han not being together at first intriguing. if so, however IMO they should definitely end up together at the end...

    perhaps Leia is a Jedi, which would possibly be a reason they're not together. or perhaps as was Mentioned before Han may have gone back to a smuggler life and Leia returned to a life of politics and they simply became alienated from one another over the years.

    As long as they end up together I'm cool with however it ends up being. (assuming that They are even main characters in the story...)
