    With all of this talk of the the "original 3" or "original 7" and Boba Fett and Plapy and characters mentioned in passing by some old guy manipulating an emotionally unhinged Jedi in an opera box... The time is right to bring back some actual star power: Bea Arthur.

    Will Ackmena be the Sith Lord? Will she be the Solo kids? Will she be inside the 3PO suit? Will she be the Millenium Falcon?

    Discuss.

    I would be totally cool if she led the Cantina in a closing time singalong but that would take some CGI fakery considering Bea Arthur is dead and all. Or they just flat-out cut into the Holiday Special. That would be unique.

    No, she's now Anakin's ghost.

    The 2015 special edition of ROTJ will photoshop her head over Hayden's, for consistency's sake.

    My sources tell me that Bea Arthur aka Ackmena will indeed be in EPVII. Living in sin with Peter Cushing aka Tarkin.

    I'm told they will live in a block of flats, Palps lives above them, Boba lives below them, and Mace lives on the ground floor as he developed a phobia of heights.

    Unfortunately, Kenny Baker has yet to confirm his involvement.

    I'd ask you to provide sources, but this sounds like solid info.

    Apparently, Whoopi Goldberg has agreed to play the part in Episode VII.

    Plapy? Well, keep this quiet cuz I was told I could not spoil this one - He is revealed as the landlord of the block of flats in EPVIII

    I'm thinking Kenny Baker for that role provided he can sort his contractual issues out

    Is Bea Arthur too fat to be believable as our beloved character from the original era? I know she is deceased, but consider the bloating that a decomposing corpse goes through... can she ever look the same again?

    Sorry, she'd have to be re-hydrated...

    That may or may not have been code for Mark Hamill. So, the answer for a presentable Luke is re-hydration... good to know we have plan...

    Overbearing landlord, Mace ends up in debt to him, and Ackmena pays the rent with "favours", while Tarkin watches from the wardrobe.

    But please, please keep it to yourself

    I'm wondering if the stormtrooper that tripped and fell over the railing as Hand Solo fooled him with the fake from The Holiday Special will return as the main villain....he has stewed for years in the Kashyyyk undergrowth plotting his revenge on the Solos, now is the time....

    If that actor has put on weight or somehow inexplicably aged in the past 30 years, we don't want him.

    Calling him an actor is probably a stretch...
