Quoted from Jasontaps:
I hope I'm wrong, but it sounds like 7-9 are already headed in the wrong direction. Luke, Leia, Han and Chewie are who made Star Wars what it is. Sounds like these main characters (if you believe the rumors) aren't even going to be in a starring role.
I think of the issues with the Star Wars Episode 1 pin was the cartoon graphics they used instead of real shots of the actors.
My hope is they do make a Episode 7 pin.
Not headed in the wrong direction. In fact, the original script that Disney got from Lucas was heavily re-written to increase the role of the original characters.
