Star Wars 7: Can Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher Make a Return?
In 1977, I went to see a movie with special effects I had never seen before. Who ever heard of a light saber anyway? Star Wars, or as it is now called “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” broke some serious doors down.
The use of models to do flying scene on the Death Star, the light sabers, and the ensemble cast (at least the way they did it) were brand new. Everyone thought George Lucas was a genius. And he was!
Darth Vader was the ultimate bad guy. Dark, deep voice and Luke’s Dad. Cool!
Well, now Disney has bought Lucasfilms from George Lucas and talk is swirling about a new movie. Six really isn’t enough. Friday the 13th had 13, afterall!
The question is, who to cast? There are 3 people that have the answer: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. They want in.
Personally (and with no offense to them), you can’t create a masterpeice sequel THIRTY-FIVE years later. 35 years of aging is on their faces and bodies. No amount of plastic surgery can make Ford, Hamill and Fisher look as good as they did in ’77. And if they were in the movie, I would want them to look they did.
What would the plot be? A fight on the Medicare Star?
Jedi wheelchair races over Tatooine? Them training their kids? Ewww!
I just don’t see the original cast, except Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 returning.
Am I wrong? How do you think it could work?
May the Force be with you.
