‘Star Wars: Episode 7′: 10 Pros and Cons of Original Cast Returning

A continuation of the Anakin Skywalker lineage plot line could deliver one of the biggest and longest cinematic through-lines in movie history. Little is known about the Episode 7 story but most reports suggest that Lucasfilm intends to incorporate Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Leia Organa into the next trilogy plot - likely with a focus on the next generation of Solo and Skywalker children (such as Jacen, Jaina and Anakin Solo and/or Ben Skywalker). A direct continuation of the plot would allow Lucasfilm to weave a much larger overarching narrative - compared to the boy confronts the dark side story of Luke Skywalker (via Episodes 4-6) or, as a result of the prequels, the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker (via Episodes 1-6).

Additionally, anyone familiar with the Star Wars Expanded Universe knows there's plenty of recurring thematic material that comes back around - meaning that watching Star Wars: Episodes 1-9, could be an extremely rich and interconnected story experience at every level.
