If you say “Joss Whedon” and “Star Wars” together, people are going to freak out. Even if it’s something as simple as, “Joss Whedon watched Star Wars.” But in this case, the director went as far as to share his thoughts on what he’d actually do with the franchise were he given the reins. Well, that’s a horse of a different color… You probably know by now J.J. Abrams was the one eventually chosen to continue the Star Wars saga with Episode VII but a lot of names were thrown around before then including Whedon’s. You might have also heard Carrie Fisher “joking” she would be in the film and George Lucas sort of confirming all three original stars would be returning. Well if Whedon had his way, they wouldn’t be. In an interview interview with Digital Spy he said:
You know, I wouldn’t go back, I’d go forward.  I would want to create characters that would resonate the way that they did.  I mean not that I don’t want to see [the new movies], I would be excited to, but I also feel like I would want to explore a very different part of that universe.
And if there was a Han Solo solo film, would he have a hand in something that meant recasting the famous character? “That I would never want to do. Some things may not be rebooted,” he said, in his most serious voice.
