I think they were meant to be about 18-20 in ANH. I always thought about 18, but I've heard 20 too.

Lucas meant Luke and Leia to be 18, from what I've read, but they may change that to 19 to fit into Ep 3 which is still quite believable.

I believe that Luke and Liea are born at the end of Episode III, giving a little hope in to lost cause.

Star Wars has always been a story about the young, the next generation. The last group above makes the strongest case for killing off many of the older characters during New Jedi Order, including the main movie characters.

New Jedi Order will end in approximately 3 more years in our lives, and the lives of our heroes. So Han would be 60, Luke and Leia, 51, Mara 49, and the Solo twins 22 (the age of Luke and Leia in Return of the Jedi). Ben Skywalker will be about 4 years old and hardly a character in the New Jedi Order.

If George Lucas decided to ever make Episodes 7,8, & 9, Harrison Ford would be the right age to play Han, Carrie Fisher would be approximately Leia's correct age, and Mark Hamill could fake being a little younger. I am not certain of Billy Dee Williams' age.

If these characters are killed off, or still living, I think the main focus would be on a younger generation of heroes and villains.
The general age range of original Star Wars fans would be about
30 - 45 years of age. Anywhere from 6 to 21 years younger than Luke Skywalker. They would either be more adult movies, or have to focus on pleasing a younger generation - perhaps even younger than The Phantom Menace's youngest fans, who will be hitting their early teens and almost 40 years younger than the main movie cast of heroes.

George Lucas said he wants some time away from Star Wars after the prequels. He could very well be pushing 80 when he does the films, making any appearance of Han Solo an 80 year old man also, and Luke Skywalker older than Ben Kenobi in A New Hope.

Think about it guys: do we want more movies? What of?

Lucas has no plans YET beyond the prequels. Maybe it should end their, with all the DVD's.

I still don't think Episode III will be 4 years after Episode II, I think at the most two years...

I could be mistaken. It is all dependent on Luke and Leia's age in ANH. We're debating that in another thread as we speak.

Well, it looks more and more like Episode III is four years after AOTC and 18 years before ANH.

WOW! Nice age chart, Tycho. I forgot you had typed that out.

See people? It pays to go browsing through the old threads...:rolleyes:

I still believe EPIII will be two years after ATOC

Most likely, the twins will be born at the end of the film..perhaps on Dagobah....which would explain why Luke says it's familiar.

I completely forgot Luke said that. I think their birth will be closer to the middle of the film. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Anakin Solo dies at 17? I never read about that. How does he?

He sacrificed himself to help destroy the last bit of Voxyn genetic material aboard a Yuuzhan Vong world ship near Mykr.

BATTLE OF THE FORCE

John Rassick: 28


Anyway, Tycho, just how old is Anakin supposed to be? In TPM he was supposed to be nine, meaning he'd be 19 in AOTC. But in several of the books I've read that Anakin was 20 in AOTC. And it's actually possible for him to be 20 and Padme to be 24--it would just mean Anakin's birthday was in an earlier month than Padme's.

Tycho
05-31-2002, 07:56 PM
You are right. Obi-Wan was supposed to be 24 in TPM anyway, according to a lot of sources. Others say he was 25. For him to turn 25 even the day after Qui-Gon was killed is possible. Or perhaps his birthday was during their brief stay on Tatooine and Qui-Gon gave him "pathetic lifeforms." :D

It is interesting to note though: Obi-Wan "made himself" a Jedi Master at the age of about 25 (by taking Anakin on as a padawan- and it is debatable if he has a master title amongst seasoned Jedi, however, the younger Jedi must respect him as such).

But then it is believable that Luke, Obi-Wan's "last apprentice" declares himself a Jedi Master at only the age of 28.

But Luke had been discovering and practicing with other Force-sensitives:

Dev Sebwarra - died in Ssruvvi invasion at Bakura
Kyle Katarn - mostly avoided contact with other Jedi, trains independtly
Ken - Palpatine's own grandson. Now where the heck is he?
Jem - Luke's early girlfriend - deceased, killed by the Empire
Rayf - deceased, killed by the Empire.
Kam Solasar - currently Jedi Master in the NJO

and by the time Luke is 29, he is instructing Kyp Durron. Interestingly enough, Kyp is probably just a little younger than Anakin in AOTC, and Luke is about 5 years younger than Obi-Wan is. Nice parallel. Maybe it was planned that way. LFL governs the EU and told authors what they can and cannot do, as well as ordered things before such as Chewbacca's death and the description of the formation of the Rebel Alliance. These 'facts' are not even that, but they bring up speculative concepts that are interesting.
