Oh Man, do some of them ever look bad now! Luke would kind of look like that fat kid playing with a light saber now. Princess Leia, what happened? Many of them need to start with a crash diet before they even think about reading the script. I think they waited about 20 years too long to make this one.

37 years happened. This is what age does to people. Even Harrison Ford doesn't look the way he looked in Star Wars, for sure. :-/
I was definitely surprised to hear they're using the original cast. They can do a lot with makeup and post, but they can't make the cast appear youthful, short of going full CGI like they did for Jeff Bridges in Tron Legacy. Unless they go to that extreme, the story has to be set decades after the original trilogy.

Yeah, long time, still Mark Hamill has got to lose some weight. Carrie Fisher isn't that bad, but could stand to lose some weight also. Harrison Ford looks all right. I bet they're glad they got those parts because it must have been slim pickings before that. Looking forward to it after it being shelved for so long. Hope they focus more on the young upcoming Jedi and don't overdo it with the oldies, aside from Harrison Ford. Having all of today's CG should be really great.

Star Wars7: Retirement Strikes Back!
I think it's to be expected Disney would do this. I mean, these guys are legends and it's commonplace to give them a cameo appearance. Just look at Leonard Nimoy. The guy represents non-stop (although he does do a good job!). As for CGI... they're gonna have to pull all the strings on this one

We can only hope it's just cameo. They might do a few funny things, like they can't remember where they put their light saber. I would guess they will train in the new recruits. Star Wars never strayed far from the Hero's Journey.
