Word on the street is that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Han Solo in the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Wars Episode VII. Whether or not this turns out to be true (sources are a bit suspicious, El Mayimbe) or how substantial Ford’s role will be remains to be determined. As one of the best characters in the franchise’s history, I certainly hope he returns – and with Ford filling his boots. I just hope it doesn’t come off as poorly as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
It’s also been reported that Carrie Fisher would be willing to put on the hair buns again. It would be an interesting arc to follow some Star Wars literature and have Leia and Han married, with little Jedi offspring. Ah, there we have it: Skywalker-Organa-Solo children all grown up and taking on the universe as Jedi.
What do you think of the possibility of original cast members returning in Star Wars Episode VII?
