Were you worried a Disney-owned Star Wars franchise would ignore the stars — pun intended — who catapulted the series into megawatt fame in the first place?
George Lucas finds your lack of faith disturbing!
In a recent interview, the creator divulged a bit too much info when he swore many of our old school faves were already onboard with the new films!!
So, which big names did he promise were poised for appearances?!
Harrison Ford as the handsome rogue Han Solo, perhaps?
Or maybe Carrie Fisher as his pretty pretty Princess?
What about Mark Hamill as the whiny dust farmer who mastered The Force, found out his dad was Hayden Christensen, and then freed the galaxy from evil oppressors!
Would you believe us if we told you… ALL OF THEM!?!
“We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison—or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation. So I called them to say, ‘Look, this is what’s going on. …Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do."
Whoops! Sounds like those beans weren't meant to be spilled!
We forgive him for the spoiler, though, because this the most ah-mazing development we've heard since Disney announced they owned the rights and were making new films!!!
We're so excited our crotch lightsaber is burning a hole through our chonies, LOLz!!
