I feel like you have to leave a little time. Casting replacements 5 years out is one thing, casting replacements to immediately follow ep VI seems strange.
Also, Thrawn trilogy lets them keep with the empire as the enemy as opposed to some goofy alien race.
Of course they could just jump the shark and do New Jedi Order type stories to avoid any casting issues (although they still end up facing a goofy enemy)...
