Just as long as they don't hire the guy who did Guy Pearce's makeup in Prometheus. Blech.

You'd be bored... Really?!  Because you have so many other things going on...

No Wedge:

He's always had a stick up his ass about Star Wars...  I've found that annoying about him.  I'd have liked to have seen him return as some kind of officer, but I'd be fine with them recasting him with someone who resembles him older, honestly. 

Seeing Wedgie still around would be neat to me though.

It's too bad that Fake Wedge passed away or they could have used him as Ep7 Wedge. :P

Seriously though, I'm glad he's not coming back.  It's neat to have Han/Luke/Leia return, but that's all I need.  I really don't want to see this movie packed with a bunch of 60-70 year old dudes.

Wedge made it through the destruction of two Death Stars, dude has earned retirement on some beach planet.  Give us some new starfighter pilot character that's an offspring of Wedge or something as a nod to him and that's enough for me.

Agree with Jeff.

But I do want Admiral Ackbar to be in there somewhere.

Some characters that are links back to the OT would definitely be welcome.  The Mon Calamari were a big part of the Rebel fleet in ROTJ, and seeing that plot point continue would be interesting to see.  The thing that I'm concerned about?  Incorporating these elements so that they're present and relevant, but not shoehorning them in, thereby bogging down the movie.

I'm hoping the Ice Cream Maker Guy runs by in a scene.   ;D

Pablo Hildago had a rather cryptic tweet back in December that he had good news for Willrow Hood fans but more or less couldn't say anything.  To me that means he is going to be in something coming up...probably just a cameo in Rebels but who knows...Episode VII:Son of Hood

Here is a link to the first character to be shown for ep7. It looks like they are going Muppetty!

So awesome. I totally imagine that alien going to sell his offspring to some vendor, since young bird-looking alien is probably a delicacy at Chalmunn's Legends cantina.  ;D

I'll take Muppets over CGI any day of the week.

That contest sounds like a cool idea, I'll definitely throw them $10.

I love all the focus on the bird-puppet guy.

All sorts of blogs/sites are breaking down his costume and making grand assumptions about what his appearance in this promo video means for all alien effects/characters planned for the Ep7/8/9 (OMG NO CGI ALIENS!).  People are looking for hints at who/what he might be and talking about how he resembles a certain SW EU Legends character (OMG Kal'Falnl!!!).

I cannot imagine how much fun the LFL/Disney/Bad Robot dudes are going to have messing with all of us via these kind of reveals.  Let the misinformation campaigns begin! :P

Damn near everyone in the background of that video was in costume, so yeah...  Hey, whatever.  I guarantee there will be CGI characters too though.  I feel it's inevitable. 

I don't mind CGI stuff...  Sebulba was pretty extraordinary, especially at the time.  Honestly, even Jar Jar was pretty state of the art at the time.

I liked the weird thing that wandered through the shot, but yeah why read anything into any of it? 

I'm just glad Abrams seems to be attempting to reinforce that he cares about this, and doesn't want to piss people off.  I'm sure he will because if there is something more picky than a Star Trek fan it's a Star Wars fan, but hey I'm just along for the ride no matter how it turns out.

Then again I liked both his Trek films.  I'd love more of those honestly.
