Sources are reporting that Harrison Ford will be back for the upcoming Star Wars films as Han Solo.

I'm a little giddy with excitement.

Now that it's been announced that there will be three spin off movies, which one are you most excited about: Yoda, Boba Fett or Han Solo?

Personally, I'm most excited about the Han Solo spin off. I hope it takes place between Episode III and IV. I know some people will get upset about needing to recast Han Solo, but I don't mind. Seeing a young Han smuggler with Chewie would be so awesome.

This. I'd like to see how Han and Chewie meet up and form their friendship and some of his early exploits.

Yoda's movie should be interesting. They have, what, 900 years of potential story lines?

I like how the character of Boba Fett fits in the story line, but I'm not as thrilled about a movie about one of the villains. Han is a "bad boy" but good inside. Boba Fett is pretty much just the bad guy.

Boba Fett could be good. He was left fatherless at like age 7 and became one of the best Bounty Hunters in the galaxy.

It definitely has potential, but pulling off the bad guy protaganist is always tough. They're gonna need a good writer.

The Han Solo [book] trilogy is good. It goes through all of the stuff mac mentions (befriending Chewie, meeting Lando, falling out with Lando, etc.) and ends with a few cool tie-ins to Ep. IV. The books are: "Paradise Snare", "Hutt Gambit" and "Rebel Dawn." So I'm curious whether the movie will follow those books or throw them all out.

A Boba Fett movie would probably be done where he is going after true bad guys, with maybe some Han Solo tie-ins. They made a Punisher movie. His character isn't exactly a good guy (disclaimer: I haven't seen the Punisher movie.)

The Punisher is still fighting evil, he just doesn't have many limits on what he's willing to do. Keep in mind, my only real exposure to Punisher is the movie that had, I think, John Travolta as the villain, so feel free to dismiss anything I have to say about that particular character. :)

The Boba Fett could really be awesome. There was a really good short story explaining how Fett survived the Sarlacc Pit; they could turn that into the prologue. The movie will then show how Boba returned and fought in the Bounty Hunter Wars (when the Bounty Hunters' Guild collapsed, and they set all the Bounty Hunters against one another).

That was a terrible book trilogy because of the mischaracterization, but its a great story to start on.

I think they have already said that the three movies (Han, Yoda, Fett) will be origins movies.

Looks like Mark Hammil is in as Luke.

Re: The HoSS Cantina
 
Ford and Hamill possibly in the new movies. Hope they've been taking their Geritol and eating their Wheaties. I think I'd like it if they weren't the main characters, but used more to frame the story to continue the saga, sorta passing the baton.

Oh, and I just noticed the name change. Good idea!
