If your dream outcome from Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm would be to see Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher back in their "Star Wars" roles, keep your fingers crossed.
A "highly placed source" has hinted to Entertainment Weekly that Ford's "open" to the idea of returning to his Han Solo character, and Fisher told a TMZ photographer (albeit pretty unenthusiastically) that she was interested in doing the sequel as well.
When asked whether she would be in a future "Star Wars" film at Disney's request, Fisher gave a definite "yes." Her response caught the photographer a little off guard, and she responded, "Wouldn't you?"
At the moment, Disney has "Star Wars: Episode 7 " in early development, with the hope to see it arrive in theaters in 2015. As for how Fisher, Ford and Hamill could pick up the story in the new proposed trilogy, EW mused that Disney could use the original three to pass off the franchise to a new generation.
What do you think? Good idea for the original stars to return, or would that be a risky move on Disney's part?
