They’re talking to us. George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we’d be interested. He did say that if we didn’t want to do it, they wouldn’t cast another actor in our parts – they would write us out. … I can tell you right away that we haven’t signed any contracts. We’re in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed — on their end, not mine. They’re more busy than I am.
Mark Hamill on “The Sequels” — UMM how do you write out… oh man are they just gonna ignore all those expanded universe novels that are beloved… wait this is George Lucas; of course he’s gonna piss over EVERYTHING…. it’s what he do (not does, “do” as in “thas whut ah doo”)
