As more news and rumors about Disney’s upcoming Star Wars trilogy begins to trickle out, EW just posted a story claiming that Harrison Ford is interested in returning to the franchise. According to one source, “Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it, all three of them are.” The “three” that the source is referring to are Mark Hamill, Carrier Fisher, and Ford. The site also says that Ford won't begin negotiating until a script and director are in place, though.
Ford’s portrayal of Han Solo propelled him to superstardom in the late ‘70s, and that role went on to help him grab the Indiana Jones gig and countless other roles during the ‘80s and ‘90s. At the age of 70, it looks like Ford is willing to give in to nostalgia and don the black vest and blaster gun that made him a household name in the first place. Hopefully this report turns out to be true, because if Disney is going to pump out more Star Wars sequels, the studio might as well include the original actors, instead of recasting these iconic roles.
