    It'd be pretty wild if Han and Leia ran their course, had a few kids, then separated. Enter Lando who gets her on the rebound.

    If Harrsion Ford doesn't sign, I fully expect someone to just find and replace "Han" with "Lando" in the script. Lando was freakin' wearing Han's clothes at the end of ESB fer crissakes!

    Lets remember that the last time we see Han and Leia in ROTJ they shared a kiss and was celebrating on Endor. I think that suggested that they would live happily ever after. I think the ST will see them married with kids. If it is true that Harrison Ford is in strained contract negotiations, it may be a due to bargaining about the subtance and size of the role. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill will not miss this movie. Let me also remind everyone that this idea of Episode VII being 40-50 years after ROTJ is speculative. I know this is based on EU timelines. However, other than small allusions, I doubt the EU will be mentioned much.

    To me the whole estranged-couple-but-the-audience-knows-they're-still-really-in-love that gets brought back together in the end by their child, or a crisis (or their child in a crisis) has become a bit overdone and cliche. Not that Arndt couldn't make it work, because I'm sure he could. But I'm pretty meh on the idea.

    I think Han and Leia would make an awesome older bickering couple. Kind of like Tracy and Hepburn in Adam's Rib, but older and with kids.

    Well considering Han would be in his 70's, dying from childbirth at that age makes sense.

    Very true. Really, it's a miracle he could even get pregnant at that age.

    I'm sayin it'll take a solid 2 more months until we get some sort of news (May the 4th!) but by that time we may just start cannibalizing each other.

    Yup, I've been looney tunes for awhile now (and I kinda like it :D ), so I guess we'll all just have to put up with each other's craziness.

    On a more serious note, I was thinking about this and remembered another famous couple who rather remind me of what Han and Leia could become: John and Abigail Adams. With Leia in more of the John Adams role, and Han perhaps being in the military as opposed to taking care of the home and children as Abigail did (not to knock the importance of, and hard work that goes into raising a family, but it's not very cinematic).

    But there are some interesting parallels. John and Abigail were part of a world-changing revolution, and then they devoted the rest of their lives to help building a new country and new government. For this, they made many personal sacrifices, including long separations. But through it all, they always remained each other's "dearest friend." And oh yeah, their son became President.

    Just a thought.

    I think they will be married and one of their children has the Force or if they only have one child they will have the Force

    Chewie is a lovable, iconic figure. And it's Disney. He's alive.

    Han and Leia? I can see where they wouldn't have ever been married. Though I expect them to be. Though I think it would be interesting if Han didn't end up the career Military man/elder statesman, with Leia as the Jedi origanizer and Luke being the kind of drifter.

    Though I have a hard time envisioning the Solo kids turning out the way they did. At 19 she was leading a rebellion and he spent at least 10 years doing all kinds of Fringe things. I can envision a character I'll refer to as "Solo Daughter" running around in the Falcon with Chewie trying to get out of her famous parents shadow.

    Oh, as for their relationship, I don't see them bickering like in ESB. I can see that happening between "Solo Daughter" and "Younger Male Lead". Maybe some bickering about how the kids turned out.
