    A senile old Ackbar, shouting "IT'S A TRAP!" while jumping round corners to scare his grandkids.

    Seriously though, like most other people I want to see the big three but in a supporting role. Luke could possibly be running a new Jedi training facility like he is in the Jedi Knight games. I'm sure if he is back, then Ewan will be back to do force ghost Obi Wan to offer him the usual guidance. Han being killed off is also a good idea, I can just imagine a scene like that, it would be very powerful. Plus it would let Ford off from coming back ever again :p I'm not sure he would be willing to come back even for just the first one.

    Fett would be great, the droids are a given. If Han comes back, then surely Chewie will also. Not bloody CGI Chewie this time, I hope.

    I think they need to be careful though. You don't want to just start throwing in crowd pleasers everywhere or it will get silly. Those characters had their times in the OT and PT. Qui Gon for example, it wouldn't make much sense him appearing, unless he was with Obi Wan I guess.

    The dialog between Force Ghost Anakin and Luke would be so much more powerful then Force Ghost Yoda or Obi-Wan. Either let it be Anakin or I would be open to the possibility of it being all three. Though I doubt anyone would be willing to have Ewan dress up as old Obi-Wan. It seems disrespectful to Alec Guinness.

    I didn't like her at first but she grew on me. For her to appear in VII-IX, she would need to be presumed KIA at the end of Clone Wars and frozen in Carbonite. I like the idea but at the same time it's really a bit too convoluted.

    I don't want to see Mara Jade or the Solo/Skywalker kids or any such EU silliness either. They're gonna either need a new hero or go with Old Man Luke. I think Luke will work best as an Obi-Wan figure, however.

    How is it disrespectful? Alec isn't here to play the part, and only Ewan could do him justice. He did a great job in the prequels. If anything it would be a tribute to Guinness.

    And I'd be dubious about the effect of dialogue between Anakin and Luke if Hayden Christenson is playing him...

    And that's assuming that Asoka survives the end of the series or Order 66.

    As much as I like Ashoka, that's impossible, she is most likely to be dead. And i just don't think that would work. But if she is in it, i wouldn't mind!

    Since Episode VII is presumbably happening 30 years or so after ROTJ, wouldn't she be like 80?

    We don't know that. I think since Anakin looked so old and deformed in ROTJ people forget that it's only ~23 years after ROTS-- Anakin, Padme, everyone would presumably still be alive if everything didn't happen the way it did. Ahsoka could very well be alive, scientifically speaking.

    But god I hope not.

    Ahsoka, no, but maybe her and Anakin's Force daughter.

    Well, good ol' Wookiepedia says she was born 36 BBY, and if we take Ep VII forward about 30 years, say 36 ABY for symmetry, that'd make her 72 - and probably looking worse for wear.

    Who says that Togruta age the same as humans. Perhaps she has a really long life span and being 80 is just like hitting 25 for humans. The age issue can be easily handled, imo.

    The original characters as torch-passers and cameos only. All new characters only after that.

    Yay for disregarding the entire Post-ROTJ EU in one fell swoop!

    Agreed (and good to see you BBYD!)

    My exception would be the droids. I always felt that they served as narrator or at least chorus for the story.

    Oh sweet Force I hope not. Please let her be killed in TCW, or at least disappear before Order 66 to never be heard from again. And by never, I mean never... not even much later on, like in Episode 7 (I still can't believe we're talking about Episode 7 as a real, confirmed thing now).

    I doubt it, she's going to have to meet her maker somewhere along the line before Ep 3. Figure it'll be a death that's going to nudge him closer to the Dark Side

    Ashoka could be fine as long as she gets put into storage I suppose. Maybe have Palps capture her for one of his Force Experiments.

    There is but one true canon. G-canon is the one true canon, imho.

    Chewbacca not being dead would be a mild issue for me, I must say.

    I don't mind her character, though I feel she has been shoe horned into the original storyline to the point of facepalm. I thought a decent idea would be to have her go off on a solo emergency mission to look into a distress call from Outbound Flight (last mission of Jedi Trials) ....miss Op66 and kinda disappear into the EU. Leave her open to fan fiction and occasional EU books but keep her out of any future movies. That may make her fans happy enough.
