Meanwhile, the seventy-something male could be a longtime friend of Han’s – who is expected to appear in Episode VII as, most likely, a seasoned general for the New Republic – and the forty-something “military type” could be a fellow who’s being prepped to serve as Han’s successor. Similarly, it seems to be feasible that Meyers is being considered to play the “fit, handsome and confident” male character that is described above (since the 36-year old actor could easily pass for being in his late 20s, by Hollywood standards).
Of course, there are many ways that Episode VII might go wrong, when it comes to introducing new characters and re-establishing familiar ones (see: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull); not to mention, all of the above speculation could be completely off-base, especially if these details turn out to be incorrect.
All the same, there’s plenty of juicy material to be analyzed and discussed here, so feel free to chime in with your own thoughts in the comments section.
Star Wars: Episode VII is slated to reach theaters by Summer 2015.
