Harrison Ford May Not Return as Han Solo for ‘Star Wars 7’

Harrison Ford talks Star Wars: Episode VII and Indiana Jones 5 In what may come as numbing news for fans, Hollywood legend Harrison Ford hasn't decided whether or not he wants to return for Star Wars: Episode VII, which may be why we haven't heard any confirmed casting announcements just yet.

Yesterday, we learned that LucasFilm is prepping a major Star Wars: Episode VII cast reveal in the form of a teaser trailer rumored to feature the return of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. As we impatiently await the release of that video, Harrison Ford went on BBC One's The Graham Norton Show, where he admitted that we may never see Han Solo again.

"[I have] not quite made the choice..."

However, the actor did reveal that he is quite ready to return as everyone's favorite archaeologist in Indiana Jones 5.

"I would do it in a New York minute, yes. I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart. I'm old enough that we don't need (Sean) Connery any more. I'm old enough to play my own father!"

The actor revealed in August that he was optimistic about getting to play Indy one more time, although we haven't heard anything concrete about the sequel's development for quite some time.

While he is beloved around the world for playing Han Solo, Indiana Jones, and numerous other iconic characters, the actor revealed that his children aren't very impressed by his legendary career.

"Frankly my kids couldn't give a s--t. Actually they've never really cared because they grew up in the sausage factory and it doesn't matter to them."

Harrison Ford will next be seen in Ender's Game next month and in the comedy sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in December.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18th, 2015.

Indiana Jones 5 is in development .

    "Though his children could care less for his iconic roles." Are Ford's children now deciding if fans get to see that scuffy-looking nerf herder in the Falcon's pilot seat again?! By the way, Movieweb, it's, "Couldn't care less".

      not sure who is worse... ford with episode VII or murray with GB3!! I realize the backdoor is negotiation but f*ck... give us an answer!


      • ObiWanShinobi • 2 years ago

        Whatever, f*ck this movie.


        • phatalphd • 2 years ago

          Harrison...bout time you learn...Indiana Jones is DONE!! Give it up after that dreadful last one.

          If he turns down han solo I'm done with him. For reals. Don't these motherf*ckers have agents? like people that tell them smart things to do and dumb things not to?


          • evilwhitemale • 2 years ago

            He'll return. Too many nerds are counting on it.


            • QuintsSharkShop • 2 years ago

              Good, I'll take Indiana Jones over Star Wars any day.

                @brady1138 Absolutely.


                • brady1138 • 2 years ago

                  @skywise True, but I would rather SEE him passing the torch, rather than have some quick line about one of the most iconic characters in history dying in a Falcon accident between movies, or something.


                  • shuabert • 2 years ago

                    He's being coy here, clearly.

                    Also, I don't think Harrison Ford has ever learned what the euphamism "Sausage Factory" means.


                    • ghostman • 2 years ago

                      So he doesn't want to return to Star Wars, but would rather make another Indy film?


                      • a7sus4 • 2 years ago

                        Hey, another none solid piece of Star Wars speculation, as if Harrison Ford hasn't already been dodging the question. Nothings changed.


                        • themoviefanatic • 2 years ago

                          Not good.

                            @brady1138 That is very true. In fact, I have seen interviews with him from way back where he felt the Han Solo character was not to his liking.

                            I wish he would just suck it up and pass the torch on to a new generation.

                              Idk if han isn't back idk if I want to see it


                              • brady1138 • 2 years ago

                                Um...how is this different from what we've heard before? He's been saying pretty much that very thing from the start.


                                • lancelievense • 2 years ago

                                  do it harrison ford please do it for use

                                    I hope he's in the next Star Wars. I wouldn't mind another Indiana Jones as long as Shia Labaeiouf doesn't come along for the ride.
