EXCLUSIVE: Harrison Ford Will Return As Han Solo In ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’
Latino Review ^ | 2/15/13 | Fox

Posted on 02/15/2013 1:02:19 PM PST by Nachum

Good morning cool kids!

What’s poppin’?

Star Wars, man!

I still can’t believe there is going to be another another trilogy.

I’m not going to lie, I was one of those who were of the opinion that all the recent Star Wars news was a tad overkill. I wanted to disconnect my internet until 2015.

I thought lots of folks felt the same way I did.

Boy was I wrong.

I took an informal twitter poll and asked my followers if they wanted Star Wars scoops. The response was overwhelming. Even my inbox got bombed like never before.

Man, y’all really want Star Wars scoops!

After trying to avoid the circus, I’m now smack dab right in the middle of it.

So like a Corellian smuggler I went on the prowl and I came up with something BIG.

He'll be really old, because He's been lying about his age.

Maybe he needs a payday.

How soon does he get political and jump on the “O” bandwagon ... in order to boost ticket sales?

Since the guy who did the new star trek movie may be doing this movie maybe old han will be talking to a younger alternate timeline Han and inspiring him.....

I imagine he could be like Capt. Christopher Pike in the Star Trek 2 parter. Wheelchair, drooling, lives through an alien provided avatar.

No. Hyperspace is a Lucas-verse end-run around physics. It supposes FTL, making the second half of that screed unnecessary.

At one point, General Solo is married to Leia Organa-Solo, who follows Mon Mothma as Chief of State of the New Republic, and has a passel of kids.

Would love to see that in any new movies.

No, I know Ford looks great :-) ... I hope I frigging look that good if I make it to 70! He was one of my favorite actors growing up!

However, his “fossil” quote from Star Wars was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this :-).

I’m sure this’ll over about as well as the elderly Indiana Jones did. Considering they introduced a ridiculous aliens trope to that series, perhaps Star Wars VII will be about archaeology.

That article is nonsense, because it completely discounts the Star Wars universe concept of “hyperspace”, which is like a parallel dimension where ships can travel faster than the speed of light without all the relativistic pit falls. Yes, it’s a contrived device, but in the universe of the films, that’s the way it works.

Oh goody! I have no interest in seeing the SW Saga further debased..but the idea of Solo getting KILLED is appealing. Ford is 70. What’re they gonna do-airbrush him to make him look younger instead of a grandpa? Can’t stand Harrison ( I have one expression)Ford. Ugly as sin when young, uglier now.

YOu jest, but Ford has been getting younger ‘officially’. In 1977, every magazine and news item had his birthdate in 1941. That would make him 72. Now he’s born in 1943-and is only 70? Please.If we wait long enough he’ll be 25 again. Or...more likely...he’ll belly up before the character does.

After a long and nerdy explanation, they say he is 40 years older for every kessel run he’s done. They speculate he may have done up to 23.
