Making "new " versions of the originals would be sacrilige!
I mean whats the point?
What they could do is make a one off film filling the small gap between episodes 4 & 5.
Mind you there s alot of the story so it would probably take another 3 films to do that!
I think its one of the few stories ever written that could really go on forever!
So many charcters and all their backgrounds would take a lifetime to make into films. Just look at all the books that are around.... they re endless.

They are not remaking the original 3 films,They are going to do Episodes 7,8 and 9 recuiting Mark Hamill,Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher.A new tv series starts next year focusing on the characters in the background of the films.
