When it was confirmed that Disney had bought the rights to the Star Wars movie franchise and were bringing us a new Star Wars trilogy, fans around the world were eager to see some of the original characters making a return. Fortunately it did not take Disney long to confirm that Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher would all be returning, along with a number of other familiar faces.
When Stars Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens was released, it was met with mixed reviews and one of the things that the Star Wars fans were not happy with, was the way that they went about killing off Han Solo. Some fans believe that it is not the end for Han Solo and that Harrison Ford will still get to make a return as the character in the future, while others are not so sure, but when it comes to Harrison himself, he has admitted that he hopes they keep his character dead.
Ford was recently asked about the possibility of making a return as Han Solo again, when he said, "I mean, I’m finished with Star Wars if Star Wars is finished with me. I can’t imagine [returning]. But it is science fiction. I’d rather not. You know, at this point I’d rather do something else. Just because it’s more interesting to do something new."
It really is odd to hear Harrison Ford saying he would much rather work on some new movie projects, when you consider the fact that he is making a return as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner 2049, as well as preparing to begin work for yet another Indiana Jones movie. With that said though, we do hope Han Solo is dead for good and that the Star Wars franchise can begin to move forward.
