    Are we satisfied that he's gone forever. Luke told Kylo that both he and Han will be with him forever. I still feel like he may have survived the Kylo stabbing and is being hidden for his own protection by Maz who always had a great connection with Han.

    Harrison Ford did joke that Han Solo is just resting or something like that a few months ago...

    Sorry if this is being discussed elsewhere, I did not see it.

    I doubt it. Maybe JJ can convince him but I really don't know what good it would do for the story at this point.

    I can imagine how a phone call between Harrsion Ford and Lucasfilm would go.

    Lucasfilm associate: "Ford we've got a special offer for you."

    Ford: "No." *hangs up*

    Ha! I think Harrison Ford would come back if the offer was high enough, like in TFA, which Disney would pay if they wanted him. However, I don't think they will go that route with the story.

    Well, Maz is good at finding things that fall down seemingly bottomless pits, so who knows....
    Maybe she found Palpatine, too. That would be awesome.

    I think the guilt Kylo has from killing Han, will still influence the story in some respect.

    Unless there is another force flashback, like the originally scripted scene of Han and Leia taking Ben to Luke for training, then no, he won't be back.

    Wait that was a thing and they didn’t film it?

    There is no chance. There is also no conceivable way to bring him back.

    Wouldn’t mind knowing about the blue lightsaber though!

    I just don't see Han coming back: it would be terrible storytelling, IMO.

    That hasn't stopped Palpatine, Boba Fett, or Darth Maul from coming back 8-}

    Yes. An earlier version of the TFA script showed them dropping Ben off to Luke. It also had a number of additional things in the force vision, including actually showing Luke and Vader on Bespin. The opening of the movie was the infamous falling lightsaber and how Maz got it.

    I doubt the Han and Leia scene was filmed, or they might have used it in TLJ.

    Wouldn't Ben now need to pay back all the money Han owed people?

    Wow. What missed opportunities. At this point, I just wanted a Han/Luke reunion to discuss about Kylo and just to see the vibe of each of the characters. Wouldn't happen in 9 or 8 anyways. I know they have done some reaching with the use of the force in 8 which got people mad, but seeing Han as a force ghost would literally piss off millions I feel like as much as I wouldn't mind it.

    yes but what if we see Luke in the Netherworld and he can talk to Han there? Sure only a select few Jedi can manifest themselves after death in the physical world but maybe EVERYONE dead is knocking about actually in the Netherworld (heaven basically)

    I could cope with that. Might make for some interesting imagery as to how they would visualise that realm.

    Nah. Only the Jedi can keep their indentity after dying. Everyone else becomes one with the Force.

    I respectfully suggest that you missed my point. We have no canon explanation as to what the netherworld is actually like or who exactly is there. All we know is that only a handful of powerful Jedi have figured out how to return from he netherworld of the force.

    Also luke says 'No-ones ever really gone' so I think its feasible that Netherworld Luke could talk to Netherworld Han.

    I'm not saying it's likely to actually happen in 9 though!

    say's who? Where has it been established in canon exactly what the netherworld of the force is like and what can or can't happen there?

    Look I'm not saying any of this is going to happen. For the record i'd be really surprised if we see Harrison even in flashback in 9.
