So if Hamill and Ford are looking at reprising their roles for this new trilogy, that seems to suggest that it could be set after the present "Fate of the Jedi" book series that just recently got finished, as far as the timeline goes?
That would be unbelievably good news as far as keeping the EU intact.
Also I have not read any of Fate of the Jedi yet... waiting until all books are out in paperback before I start buying them....so... mid february it looks like according to wookiepedia.
And in the past Ford has been staunchly against reprising his role as Han Solo. This abrubt about-face would seem to suggest the reason he did not want to reprise it was because he didn't like the way Lucas ran that show.
Also, if Disney wants to completely re-make episodes 1-3 with actual sets and classic special effects instead of CGI everything, I would not be opposed.
One of the things that makes the prequels so bad is the acting. And one of the things that made the acting so bad was the way the film was shot and written. There were almost no actual sets! Most of it was all filmed in front of a green screen, so that made it extremely difficult for the actors to get immersed in things. Also Lucas' dialog is terrible, so what the hell were the actors supposed to do with it? I personally believe there is a decent story to be told there, it's just that Lucas sucks at telling it.
