Harrison Ford Talks Returning for ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′

Harrison Ford Star Wars Episode 7
Lucasfilm

Last month, we brought you the news that ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ would see the return of Harrison Ford as Han Solo. This news was later confirmed by George Lucas who said Ford and the original ‘Star Wars‘ cast were all signed on to return for ‘Star Wars: Episode 7.’ And now we have, for the first time, Harrison Ford talking publicly about making his big return as Han Solo.

Ford was on the red carpet for his upcoming baseball movie ‘42‘ and, obviously, the ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ question came up. After a long pause and a look on his face like, “Am I allowed to be talking about this?” Ford said:

I think it’s almost true. I’m looking forward to it. It’s not in the bag yet but I think it’s happening.

The last time a ‘Star Wars’ cast member came out and definitively said they were returning, Carrie Fisher had to come out the next day and say it was all a misunderstanding. But make no bones about it: Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will return for ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ and all that’s left is to make the big, splashy announcement.

The better question is whether Ford can still pull it off. Watching the video of him on the red carpet it’s clear to see that he’s a long way from Han Solo. So while we’re all excited to have him back, the question remains: at 70 years old, does he still have the goods?
