    IF Han was to die, and either him and leia were either in the same place or on 2 different ships, speaking over the intercom, I can imagine the lines being switched. Maybe Han's ship has been hit after a successful mission in saving many lives, but one blast from an enemy ship destroys his engine, han hurltes to the ground.

    Han sees the impending doom.

    HAN
    (soft)
    THIS IS IT YOUR HIGNESSS.

    LEIA
    HAN, NO!

    HAN
    (welling up)
    I LOVE YOU

    Ship speeds out of control towards the ground. Leia accepts his fate.

    LEIA
    I KNOW!

    Shop crashes into the ground in a huge fireball. Leia looks away. etc....

    would be really poignant, reversing the lines.

    If they are exchanging the "I love you...I know" lines as either of them die, I won't last through the rest of the movie. :_|

    I was always more of an Anidala person but dang! That would really get me

    I can see Han and Leia telling their kids "We Love You!", and then they respond "We know..."

    They already reversed the lines in ROTJ, as far as I know. :p

    And no, I don't think it's a good idea either to do it at any point of the ST. ._.

    So, uh, why do so many people expect/want Han to die anyway?

    Because Harrison Ford has said before one of the ways he would ever come back is if Han Solo was going to die in the end. Because in his eyes Han would go out in some epic way.

    The reversal already happened, in ROTJ outside the bunker on Endor.

    How about instead of reusing old lines, we let them create NEW lines that we all can fall in love with and put in our fan manips and t-shirts and whatever.

    i hated that they reused the "i love you" "i know" exchange in ROTJ, and i'd be disappointed to see the moment further cheapened by being repeated once again in the ST. it was powerful in ESB and should be left at that.

    it's probably lame to use pirates of the caribbean as a reference point, but one of the ways in which dead man's chest fell flat as a sequel was that instead of creating new comic material they just rehashed jokes from the first one. "still rooting for you!" "why is the rum always gone?" etc. i would really hate to see this mistake repeated in EP7 where all we get are cheap references to the originals in an attempt at fanboy service.

    i want new material. i want a fresh take and witty interactions between the seasoned characters. i want new lines we'll still be quoting 30 years from now, not sad parodies of moments like "no lightspeed?" and "this one goes there, that one goes there!"

    This. I want NEW stuff. While bringing back some old stuff is nice, but bringing back old stuff to an unnecessary excess *like reviving old villains, going to the same old planets, saying familiar lines, introducing characters we are already familiar with through EU or past reference, ect* can get really old *no pun intended* and boring quickly. I kinda want to be suprised not be all "oh look I know that...eh How long till this guy turns into a sith? I know its gunna happen, can we wrap this up"

    Yeah no thanks. If Han is to die I want it to be emotionally gut wrenching and I fear that line would immediately take me out of the movie. It would be indulgent self-referencing and I'd almost expect Han to turn to the camera and wink.

    Actually, I hope the big 3 survive all through the sequel trilogy, or at least, have a peaceful death, they've paid their dues already...

    I'll be honest, I hope they are all highly dramatic and unexpected deaths that pull at the heart strings.

    Of all the A/P fanfiction I used to read and write, I don't think I have ever seen the term Anidala... Interesting.

    How about we squeeze in even more overused lines:

    Han (dying): this is where the fun begins
    Leia: I have a bad feeling about this
    Han: it's not my fault!

    I'd rather he just give her the Solo grin and make short work of the enemy fleet.

    I'd forgotten about the ROTJ rehash, but I think upon Han's death, it would add weight, but just my 2 cents.

    I'm actually really not against reusing some old lines. I think that out of all the ways you can pay homage to old Star Wars, reusing lines is one of the least alienating for newcomers and the least steeped in the past in terms of showing what we've already seen. It's much better than old planets, *all* of the old characters, constant references to what's come before etc.

    Maybe the best line in movie history in my opinion. I love ths thread and think you may be right. "I love you, I know" will be incorporated somewhere in the ST. Good post!

    I do not see Han choking up or crying. I see more of a steely resolve, a grit of the teeth, and a mentality that says "I am not going out alone." The words he says at the end will reflect determination, defiance, and dignity.
