Depends. The Crystal Skull was absurd for two reasons. The idea that we were supposed to take Harrison Ford seriously as an athletic/action presence, and aliens.
Aliens won't be an issue for Star Wars, so the question is going to be how they use a clearly older Luke/Leia/Solo. If they treat them appropriately, you know, as older people, it should be fine. This might mean a less luke/leia-centric story line but sure, ok. It makes sense to go that route anyways given the franchise is going to extend another two movies.
So we'll just have to see. If they have Harrison Ford dropping kicking storm troopers it might be lame.
I guess I should reserve judgement until it comes out, but that is what I was thinking when I made the original comment. I guess because that's how I see Han Solo. He's not some wise old sage of anything.
Also, if they turn him into an old/cynical guy who's busted up and doesn't contribute to the story line in a positive way, then that would be equally as bad. Who wants that person hanging around? IDK, I just see it as hard trying to find a good place for him.
BTW, my comment was only towards Han Solo and Harrison Ford reprising his role. It wasn't towards the movie as a whole. I'm actually looking forward to the movie with Abrams directing.
