    30+ years post-Battle of Endor, with the principles passing ye torch. Solo's involvement is unnecessary IMO but I would like to see Luke and Leia at the very least.

    As long as we actually get to see and hear Luke as the Jedi Master, even for a few minutes, that is all.:)

    32 years after Return of the Jedi would be ideal because it would exactly the same as the real time passing between ROTJ and VII. Have the original cast be in it but have their roles be age appropriate. They don't even have to be the main characters, they could just be the supporting characters in the mentor roles as a way to pass the torch on to new blood characters both in story and to the general viewing audience. If done well you could actually even kill off at least one or more of the old characters in some kind of heroic death and have episodes XVIII and IX be more about the new characters. The audience and it seems a majority of the fans are expecting at least some of the original cast to be in this and thus you can't just have all new characters thrown in cold turkey, you need a transition.

    I will be extremely disappointed if at least Luke played by Mark Hamill is not in the new movie.

    Taking place way after ROTJ brings up the chance that the post-ROTJ EU will not be contradicted. Besides, i don't want Disney to flip the bird to us old/new fans of post-ROTJ EU by having Episode 7 contradict it, they can find a happy medium, pleasing the EU fans, as well as the fans who have never read a post-ROTJ EU book (yes more work has to go into it, but an original story can me made, set sometime post-ROTJ without contradicting EU material, maybe even have references to the EU, or things that only EU fans would get).

    30-40 years after ROTJ with the original cast in some capacity. I could imagine Han as an aged General, sending the new heroes on their mission, Leia as a senator doing...political stuff and having some conversations with Luke and Luke in a bigger role as the mentor of the new Jedi generation.
    R2 and C3PO could reprise their roles the way they have always been in the movies. Chewie could be there to fly the new heroes to their destination with the Falcon.

    I'm with the 30 or so years after ROTJ camp. Hamill is a must for me. There has to be some tie in with the old trilogy. I'm actually not bothered about the other main characters showing up. Just Hammil.

    The second option, though I'm hoping it's even further into the future than just a single generation.

    it would be horrible if new actors were to portray young han, leia, and luke.

    Of course, if young han, leia and luke only have short cameos, mark hamill, harrison ford and carrie fisher could also be animated. i hear ILM has been experimenting with that kind of stuff for a while now..

    Ideally, the NJO era. It's be great to see the old cast make a comeback, at least in the first movie of the trilogy.

    Waaay after RoTJ, preferably after the latest novel in the timeline, so they don't screw up the EU, thanks.

    I'm honesty ok with a new cast. But my preference would be a pass the torch.

    The second option. The most logical choice. The first option would be too jarring. People would be pulled out of the film; because whist they're meant to be watching it they'll be too busy asking if those are supposed to be the same characters from the OT. The first option would truly be a horrible thing. They may as well remake the OT. I would honestly accept that more over recasting the roles for the sequels.
