STAR WARS: EPISODE VII: Han Solo Returns??? Maybe Not...
Amongst a government shutdown and memes of Scarlet Johansson falling down, it's time we, as a country, get back to what's really important. Will Harrison Ford return to Star Wars for Episode VII???????
During an interview with Graham Norton, Harrison Ford did not give a distinct yes or no on the return of Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII. Ford claims he has "not quite made the choice" to return.
The news is not exactly startling as Ford has never actually confirmed he would do the seventh film, it is just more or less soul crushing to the inner nerd inside all of us that he might not return. But alas nerd friends, there is hope (hehe, get it... hope...Episode IV...no? Ok) that he MAY return. In March, after the announcement was made that the seventh film was going to strike back into theatres in the future; Ford said "I'm looking forward to it. It's not in the bag yet, but I think it'll happen."
The interview was not limited to just light sabers, in fact there was even talk of another film in the works for (gulp) Indiana Jones. Ford said: "I would do it in a New York minute, yes," Ford said. "I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart."
In another interview over the summer with The Telegraph about Indian Jones,
Han Solo (sorry, Freudian slip!) Harrison Ford commented that, "We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass."
But the Harrison Ford sequel news doesn't stop with this! Earlier this week it was reported that there is a sequel to Blade Runner in the works.
Whether or not Ford is in the seventh film, it has a planned release date somwhere in 2015.
Even if he does say no to piloting the 'Millenium Falcon' again, I have a sneaking suspicion we'll be seeing more of Ford in the next couple of years than originally expected.
Harrison, Han...we will love you even if you don't return. Oh wait! We don't need to tell him, he already knows....
