Luke, Han and Leia To Be Episode VII Supporting Characters?
Story: The New Star Wars Movie Might Use Luke And Han Less Than We Thought - Cinema Blend
I have a bad feeling about this...
If what's talked about in the below article is the case, then I think it's yet another instance where Hollywood thinks that they need the younger set of actors front and center in a movie like this. They don't think younger folks will turn up otherwise, it seems. Episode VII would be one hell of a blockbuster regardless. But, this feels like a calculation by Disney, instead of allowing at least this first film to give the original characters a chance to star one last time, before then becoming supporting characters in the following two movies.
As a sidenote,this reminds me of "Jaws 2" in 1978. That movie insisted on having a bunch of low-acting-ability teenagers front and center. The message being that the youngun's wouldn't go to see a sequel to "Jaws" unless they had teens in the foreground! The result, as many know, is a film that is hilarious in its ineptitude. My brother and I still laugh at the stupidity that resulted.
