Mark Hamill talks Star Wars eps VII.
It seems that not a week goes by that we're not getting any new info or news on Star Wars, which already seems its going to be the most highly anticipated movie for the coming years.
First off, will he appear in Star Wars VII? "They're talking to us," he reveals. "George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we'd be interested. He did say that if we didn't want to do it, they wouldn't cast another actor in our parts – they would write us out. … I can tell you right away that we haven't signed any contracts."
How would Luke Skywalker fit into the new movie, "I'm assuming, because I haven't talked to the writers, that these movies would be about our offspring -- like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character. ….'"
Here' s a magic word "offspring"....It sounds plausible and makes a good story arc for eps VII , VIII and IX ... Focus on Han and Leia's kids (Jacen, Jaini and Aniken) and Luke and Mara Jade skywalker son Ben, who is thought in the ways of the Jedi by Jacen Solo, his cousin. As for Hamill's thoughts on Luke as an Obi Wan this fits right in because Luke take Jacen as his apprentice.
The offspring arc could bring back the original cast.
Hamill concludes of the next movie, "I hope they find the right balance of CGI with practical effects. I love props, I love models, miniatures, matte paintings -- I'm sort of old school. I think if you go too far in the direction of CGI it winds up looking like just a giant a video game, and that's unfortunate. … If they listen to me at all, it'll be, 'Lighten up and go retro with the way it looks.'"
We agree less CGI and try and bring back the magic of the original trilogy.
