Will Star Wars: Episode 7 Feature Original Cast Members?

It is becoming increasingly evident that George Lucas's premise for Episode 7 of Star Wars includes the return of the stars of the original trilogy, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford. Hamill recently disclosed that he and Fisher met with Lucas about the planned forthcoming film (but declined to discuss it because of a non-disclosure agreement), and now, according to Entertainment Weekly magazine, Ford is also being courted by Lucas to appear in the episode. The magazine quoted a highly placed source as saying: Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he's upbeat about it, all three of them are. The source indicated that the three actors have only had preliminary talks about appearing in the film, and EW observed: Ford won't go to the next level of contract talks until there's a script and director in place. Either could be a deal breaker.
