HAPPY STAR WARS DAY!
Q: Why did the angry Jedi cross the road?
A: To get to the Dark Side.
Today is Star Wars day, an official holiday celebrated by inhabitants of Earth, Coruscant, Endor, Tatooine, Hoth, Naboo but NOT Alderaan (awkward).
We are super excited about the news that Star Wars Episode VII will start shooting at Pinewood Studios later this month particularly as Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill have all signed up to appear. Whilst it is great to see the original cast returning to the world famous franchise, it got us thinking who we would like to see in a Star Wars reboot if the whole series started again. Check out our thoughts and suggestions from our twitter friends below!
Sam from UK Tor: “It has to be man of the moment Benedict Cumberbatch as C-3P0. And Martin Freeman as R2D2.”
Hannah, intern at UK Tor: "It would be very interesting to see Hayden Christensen play Luke Skywalker. He was fantastic as Anakin Skywalker in the prequels to the original Star Wars movies. It would be an interesting twist to have him play Luke in an remake of the original movies."
@EmmaIsWriting: “DANIEL RADCLIFFE”
@CrimeSquadCom: “Gotta have Hugh Jackman in it! And his Star Wars costume is a thong...”
@LynseyDalladay: “I could spend a long time thinking about this, Jennifer Lawrence as Princess Leia - v feisty! Great facial expressions!”
@zarinatweets: “Tom Hiddleston, preferably dancing.”
@LizzyCampbell: “Nathan Fillion deserves to be in there somewhere”
@KimeCurran: “I'd gender flip it all. Ellen Page as Lucy Skywalker, Emily Blunt as Hanna Solo, Helen Miriam as Old Beth Kenobi and Michael B. Jordan as Prince Ley.”
@cmccrudden: “son of C3PO should totally be played by @russelltovey”
@Suw: “Dame Judi Dench as Obi Wan Kenobi. She’s be awesome!”
@CW_Stagg: “too easy!! Huge SW fan here Michael Sheen as a Sith @MyannaBuring as a Jedi Knight”
@AnahitaMody: “Keanu Reeves as a Jedi! Just typing about it sends shivers down my spine!
