Lee was cast for a role that was (presumably) created with him in mind.

It obviously wouldn't make any sense in that case for them to be in the roles of characters half their ages. However, if the films were to be set 30-40 years after the OT, then yeah that actually would
make sense. I guess we'll have to wait for more information about the time period/plot to emerge.
