Disney bought LucasFilm and announced Star Wars 7 will be released in 2015. Fans are not thrilled and everybody is asking who could play in Star Wars 7. Fox News asked Hollywood executives who they see as Star Wars 7 actors.
Disney has big plans for Star Wars. The company has already announced it will release Star Wars 7 in 2015. Fans say the Disney vision will ruin the story since all characters in the movie must be replaced. Now, the most debated question is who could play the Disney Luke, Leia and Han Solo.
George Lucas seemed content somebody else took over Star Wars. “Disney is a huge corporation; they have all kinds of capabilities and facilities. There is a lot of strength to be gained by this” said the filmmaker in a video posted Tuesday. “We could go on making ‘Star Wars’ for the next 100 years” George Lucas added.
Fans on the other hand are disappointed and worried the next Star Wars movie will ruin it. “I don’t want a new movie. Star Wars has had enough movies. And they can’t cast new people to be Han, Leia and Luke. The original cast members are too old for this stuff” reads a comment on courtneysmovieblog.
Fox News asked Hollywood executives who could play in the next Star Wars movie. Gabriela Tagliavini, film director, sees Rooney Mara playing Princess Leia and Emilie Hirsch as Luke Skywalker.
“In her day, Leia was considered a very sexy role and I think these young actresses have that potential” said Bold Films co-president Gary Michael Walters about Nina Dobrev and Lilly Collins. He goes on to say that Liam Hemsworth and Anton Yelchin could play Luke Skywalker. As for Han Solo, Gary Michael Walters says it “could be the perfect role for” Ryan Gosling.
Zachary Bryan, producer and founder of Vision Entertainment Group, also sees Ryan Gosling as Han Solo. But he also thinks Tom Hardy, James Franco, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum could be a good fit. “Felicity Jones, Jennifer Lawrence and Isabel Lucas could be cast as Princess Leia. Top directorial candidates, I would shortlist Joss Whedon and Bryan Singer” he added.
