Ever since Disney bought Star Wars from George Lucas and the announcement of Episode VII for 2015 has put all the fanboys on the edge. So far a Matthew Vaughn (X Men: First Class) has been rumored to take over the upcoming trilogy. The new films is on earty stages, one of the ideas is to bring back all the old characters and have them hand the series off to the new guys. The catch is that old actors would come back, and so far it sounds like they’re all in.
“Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it, all three of them are,” a highly placed source that is close to the film told EW. He’s referring to Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, who have evidently all been approached to return. Hamill and Fisher must have accepted the opportunity without much delay, but Ford won’t move so fast with I assume Fisher and Hamill jumped at the chance, but it’s reported that Ford won’t move forward with contracts until a script and director are in place.
