    They're all going to be back guys! I know it seems too good to be true but it's going to happen!

    The thing about these guys coming back is, that no one wants to see who these characters would really have become in the intervening 30 years. I mean, what people want is Han Solo out there smuggling and shooting first. But if they get that, it could be silly (see also: Indiana Jones and the One With the Aliens). And if you give them a more realistic movie, where Han Solo is now a cranky old govt contractor helping develop new systems or something equally boring...it's just that -- boring.

    I think the Han Solo is just a character that has to be young in order to work. But maybe I'm wrong.

    Ah, I was just about to post this. I'll quote the juiciest bit, anyway:

    I can’t believe that we’re here, talking about this. Not hypothetically, but talking about it as something that could actually happen. I just can’t believe it.

    I always thought Ford would be the Bill Murray in all this. Hopefully this report is true and I was wrong.

    In the EU, the character of Han Solo isn't dead as of 45 ABY. If GL, KK, and the writers have in mind for Han to appear just to go out and Ford is willing to return--I can't think of a better way to go out than in Episode VII.

    Everything there makes sence - and even some of us on here have speculated it, just didn't really believe it would happen:

    It's not like Ford is in every movie these days, Kathleen has taken over, an appleal of these films will be the OT, GL not directing OR writing - It all works in his favour.

    Nah
    He's just there for continuity. He'll be kind of like Lando in ESB, "I've got supply problems and junk"

    And the new stars will be like, "your boring old man" and then throw him into space.

    Regardless of what he's said and done over the years..... the guy did Indiana Jones again. If presented with the chance prior to the present... he would have jumped at the chance to be Han Solo again. Its just one of those things, i think, where knowing Lucas, he never believed if could happen, and so he really didn't entertain the possibility in public. But the impact of Han Solo was a once in a lifetime thing.. And if you get the chance to do it again…. You don’t pass that up. Not even if you are Harrison Ford. Especially not at his age. Although Hollyweird has changed some in recent years, there still aren’t a lot of big roles for senior citizens. If he doesn’t know it, his managers surely do.

    Well he did come back as Indy, and some thought that would never happen.

    WHAT THE WHAT???

    I have just lost 200 milion $ in the last two weeks

    100 mil for SW:E7
    100 mil for Ford saying, 'sure awesome'.

    Totally shocked that Ford would even consider it!!! Not sure how I feel about it as I was pretty sold on the idea of just Hamill returning to pass on the torch.

    But he loved Indy, and loved working with Spielburg
    Solo and Lucas... not so much. Thats why this works, <<KKennedy>>
    We should all write her a thank you letter... well, lets see how good the movie is first.

    I don't know. I think most people were OK with his part of Crystal Skull.
    When I was watching Cowboys and Aliens, I found myself thinking how much Ford's character played like an old Han Solo. Afterall, Han Solo is basically just a western cowboy in space.

    Well, I'm swallowing a big grain of salt right about now but this is indeed interesting. I don't remember Ford ever saying much besides negative rumblings about the Saga in the past so this is quite a change. We shall see, I suppose.

    Indiana Jones and Han Solo are not THAT much different either. They are both ruff and tumble on the outside, with a heart of gold on the inside, though perhaps from "different sides of the tracks." I enjoyed the heck out of both Crytstal Skull and Cowboys & Aliens. I think among fanboys Crystal skull faced the same uphill battle than any Han Solo appearance in EP7 will, the rose-colored glasses of time. People faced the same hang-ups with the Prequels. The films didn’t make them feel the same as they did seeing the OT. They chalked it up to flaws in the PT, but the real issue is that THEY had changed with time… as is to be expected, though too rarely recognized.

    I can see Han and Leia being killed in the beginning of the first movie. Please. Ford looked ridiculous in the last Indy movie.
