the word I was looking for. I was trying to figure out how to word my opinion about Mark and Carrie being cast and couldn't think of the right word because "fan service" didn't sound right.
So, yes, I totally agree with this.

Star Wars should be about the story and the character interactions. It's a movie for all ages; not just a nostalgia trip for older people and not just a tool to get younger people into the franchise. Casting older actors simply as a tactic to appeal to an older demographic is a dumb reason when it comes to something like Star Wars.
They also shouldn't make a Star Wars movie just because they can. Indiana Jones didn't need a fourth movie, and Crystal Skull felt like they made a movie because they didn't have any other ideas so why not?
I'm not saying I feel about Disney making a new Star Wars movie as I did about Lucas and Spielberg making Indy 4. I think Disney is making a new Star Wars movie because it's about damn time Star Wars was good again.
But you know what I keep thinking about with Disney buying Star Wars? Disney might now remaster and release, in all it's awesomeness, the ORIGINAL Original Trilogy!
