Star Wars Episode 7: An older Luke Skywalker
If you look through images of Star Wars Episode 7 you will see some mock up pictures of what the actual posters could look like, and in some cases you will find so-called unconfirmed cast members, as well as images of Mark Hamill making his return as an older Jedi Master. We are unsure whether he will be reprising his role or whether the story will continue without him, but it is worth contemplating an appearance in the next film.
While many Star Wars fans would love to see him in episode 7, others would also like to see him succumb to the Dark Side finding the transition inevitable. In an article on Yahoo, one Star Wars fan has drawn a picture of the Jedi 30 years on, giving us a glimpse of what he could look like in the film.
The artist’s impression has given fans food for thought and questions will be asked about other actors reprising their roles, although we understand that some may be sceptical about certain cast members returning.
Actors like Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill have not braced the big budget cinema since The Return of the Jedi, around 30 years ago, and their acting skills were questioned back then, although Harrison Ford has shown his worth breaking away from the fan favourite, Han Solo. Speculation surrounds these cast members playing supporting roles to their on screen children, although we are unsure if there is any truth to this, or whether fans like this idea.
Last week we spoke about the Star Wars Episode 7 cast to include Carrie Fisher, according to a question and answer session with the actress. When asked directly whether she will be returning, she said yes, although some feel her jokey persona cannot be trusted.
In addition, we also wrote about Warwick Davis, who played an Ewok, as he would love to be involved in the next film. He said he would love to play a villain, although some feel he is setting his sights a bit too high (excuse the pun). There’s no doubting his talent and many Star Wars fans would love to see him in the next movie, in fact some have suggested he could play numerous roles, so we hope he gets the opportunity to join up with other returning cast members.
From the reaction by many Star Wars fans, we get the impression not all cast members will be welcomed although Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 are a few that we would love to see back in the frame. A large majority of fans have made it clear characters like Jar Jar Binks are not wanted, therefore, who would you like to see in Star Wars Episode 7? Maybe you have an idea of younger cast members that could play new recruits to the Star Wars family.
