And that gives me a bad feeling. The only characters from the original trilogy that should return are Luke, R2, and 3PO. That's it, and Luke is just there really to pass on the torch and be support. Han, Leia, and the Emperor should have little to no part in it. No one wants to see an old Han Solo and a fat bloated Leia.
I've said this all along, and it's just not going to happen. They need the safe money bet, and they have no concept of originality.
That Star Trek series should bother you if it doesn't already. Hackneyed time travel followed by the random regurgitation of the original plot lines? And they jerked themselves off for being so clever, ergo, that's the best they got. Good luck. I could think of a much better story than these people are going to come up with.
