Mark Hamill On the New 'Star Wars'

By Bailey Casello

According to several articles that I've seen, our beloved original cast members will be returning for Episode VII. Mark Hamill has essentially confirmed some sort of participation though in a little talk that he had with ETonline.

He says, "They're talking to us. 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. We're in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm."Source

At least we have a slight inkling of what is going on cast wise. But what about the plot? Everyone and their grandmother wants to know what is going on with the plot. Unfortunately Hamill knows nothing about the story line, but he is assuming that they new movie will center around the offspring of the original characters-which only makes sense given the current age of the original actors.

I am hoping that we can expect nothing but good things from this new movie, and movies to come. I am intrigued about all the possibilities that could come from this new trilogy and I'm hoping that they don't screw too many things up. But we will have to see. At least now we have heard a few hints from someone directly involved.
