Harrison Ford Rumor – We’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This

Harrison Ford will dust off the blaster rifle to play Hans Solo again in the new Star Wars films, according to Fox News Latino. He might even feature in one of the planned spin offs.

Okay, so here’s the thing: Ford is 70-years-old. Think you know where we’re going with this? 70 years is too old, surely. We’d love to say he can still do it; still mix it up in the blockbusters, but our Jedi senses tell us otherwise. Does Chewbacca age? Will the cuddly alien have to dye its coat? There are just so many questions. Latino Review’s journalist said, "Back in November, Harrison Ford said he was open to returning as Han Solo. But it's official, Harrison Ford will reprise his role in the new Star Wars movie. He's officially coming back as Han Solo. His deal is done, it's just the formalities. I just know the deal's pretty big and significant."

We must admit, we find this news to be pretty surprising, especially considering Ford’s famous interview in which he stated that Han Solo wasn't a character he particularly liked. He even suggest Solo should have been killed off. “I thought he should have died in the last one to give it some bottom…George [Lucas] didn't think there was any future in dead Han toys,” explained Ford in the 2010 interview.
