Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in theaters in just a few short days, and it sounds like some, if not all, of the cast has seen the movie. Including Harrison Ford, who reprises his role as Space Pirate Han Solo in this long-awaited sequel, which comes thirty years after we last saw him in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. So, what does he think? This is what he had to say about watching the movie on Good Morning America.
"I'll tell you everything...No, no, i Can't do that. It was great. It's a wonderful movie. It's got great production values. It's a real big movie, and I was delighted to see it."
So Harrison Ford likes the movie! But would Disney and LucasFilm let him roam wild if they thought he was going to slam the production? Not likely. The actor went onto say as much as he could about the return of Han Solo, and where he is emotionally. But he doesn't give us a deep dive into the character at this stage in his life. he only stated the following.
"He's got a little more complex story now. A little more of an emotional context than perhaps there was before. But he's still the same guy."
Of course, the subject of General Leia came up. Are Han and Leia still in a relationship? Are they married? Together? Still in love? It seems these questions are out of the realm of what can be answered here, 19 days away from released. When asked if he can even hint at his relationship status, Harrison Ford simply says this.
"No. I can't go that far."
So talk then turns to the production itself. And why he returned. He has a few very simple reasons why he wanted to climb back into Han Solo's leather jacket. He explains it as such.
"[It was a] really good script. The opportunity to work with JJ, who I admire. And it just seemed like a good idea."
As many know, Harrison Ford broke his leg on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens when the hydraulic door of the Millennium Falcon came crashing down on his ankle. Then a few months later, he was involved in a plane crash. He has this to say about recovering.
"I'm doing great, thank you. I'm back playing tennis, riding my bikes. I'm having a great time. There was a door on the Millennium Falcon that got closed by accident on me. My left leg was broken, yeah. Then I waited about six months before I broke my right leg. I'm pretty much right to go now."
The last question asked is about Indiana Jones 5. Is he doing it? The legendary actor sews his lips up tight, mumbling a non-answer before asking, 'How much?' It's a joke of course. He then gives this answer, which we've heard before.
"No, it's not about the money. I would love to do another Indiana Jones. And work with Steven Again. If we get a script, I'd love to do it. I'd like to see me do it before I turn 80. Yeah."
What do you think? Should we take Harrison Ford's word that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is great? Or does Disney have him by the bullocks? We'll all know soon enough when the movie finally hits theaters on December 17 for preview showings before it hits wide on December 18. Count us excited!
