Well, this is something that I really didn’t expect to not happen, but Latino Review is reporting from unnamed sources that Harrison Ford has agreed to strap on the Han Solo blaster holster for Star Wars: Episode VII.
Needless to say, there aren’t any further details and Episode VII screenwriter Michael Arndt’s script is probably better guarded than the plans to the Death Star. (Though come to think of it, those probably weren’t all that well guarded to begin with.)
But with this news we have the last of the three core characters from the original Star Wars trilogy returning for the new films that Disney is planning. How involved will their characters be in the main action, or will they simply serve to hand things off to a new generation of characters?
And with a potential “young Han Solo” standalone film in the mix, it is a good time for fans of a certain Corellian scoundrel.
