He's b-b-a-a-c-c-k-k!

And not you Wyre, so you can sit down now.

It's all done, but the signature on the contract, but Harrison Ford looks likely to reprise his role of Han Solo in "Star Wars: Episode VII." I wonder if he'll get every actor's favorite scene: a good death scene. Ford has been pushing for some time to kill off his character of Han Solo. And with Ford most likely to come back, there is talk that Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher will be back, too.

And Frank Oz, has talked about coming back to voice Yoda. Though, Yoda will now most likely be not a puppet, but a CGI creation.

Yes! Because having Harrison Ford come back as Indiana Jones was such an awesome idea, and it worked out so well! I can wait to see Han Solo roaming around the Melenium Falcon in a wheel chair, and a balding gray haired Chewie. Poor Skywalker got his his pilot license revoked because his vision is bad. It's ok though because he's teaching a new group of Jedi saying "When I was your age I had to blow up the first Deathstar and learn the force from a ghost."
Ha!  It's funny because old people are useless and boring!

The rich just keep getting richer, or how Wyre can become an instant multi-billionaire. Just come up with a trilogy of films about a kid swinging a mean lightsaber.

When the Walt Disney Company bought out George Lucas his personal wealth went up something like $2,000,000,000. Most of it in shares in the Walt Disney Company, as most companies don't like--for business reasons--to give out all that money in cash. And at an average of $50, and I hope my math is correct, that means Lucas now posseses something like 40,000,000 shares in the company. Which he has agree not to sale. Though, I imagine the company came up with some sort of agreement as to when and how much he could sell. For dumping all those shares on the market at once, would severely depress the price of the stock.

Excluding whoever got Steve Job's shares, and the company executives, Lucas is probably the largest individual shareholder in the company. Though, he still owns only about 2% of the outstanding shares. Again, I hope my math is correct, but that means there are probably close to 2,000,000,000 shares of stock outthere. Thus, The Walt Disney Company will most likely never be targeted for takeover like Dell and/or Heinz.

Of course, everytime the price of a share goes up or down a dime, Lucas' personal fortune increases or decreases by $4,000,000. Not bad if you can get it.

As for the film itself . . .

It is now all but official, that Harrison Ford will be back reprising his character of Han Solo for "Star Wars: Episode 7," and since some of you want to see them wielding their lightsabers from their wheelchairs, Mark Hamill is now making noises about coming back to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker.

He said he didn't know what would be the subject of the next film, but he presumed it'd cover the adventures of the next generation. Which is fine with me. Having just read the "Crimson Trilogy" in graphic format, which takes place after "Star Wars: Episode 6,'  the most interesting characters--indeed--the only interesting characters were the Solo children.

I don't know how much influence Hamill has, but he also said he'd like to see alot less CGI in the next film

They also said that if Hamill decides not to come back, they'll just write his character out of the script, as they have no plans to recast it with another actor.

That leaves just Carrie Fisher who has not said whether she is interested or not in coming back. Though, I can imagine the filmmakers are talking with her about returning in some small part.

So, stay tune for further updates.
