Harrison Ford rumored to return as Han Solo in ‘Star Wars Episode VII

According to sources at Latino-Review, a site with an impeccable history of reporting accurate rumors, Harrison Ford will indeed be playing Han Solo again in a future Star Wars film. Latino Review first broke the news on Fox News Latino where the editor stated, "It’s official. Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars movies.” He went on to state that “His deal is done. It’s just a formality. They haven’t really announced it yet.”

Fans may remember the report that first surfaced back in November where Ford expressed interest in reprising the role once again if the script handled the character in a proper manner. As to whether or not he'll be making an appearance in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII or the rumored Han Solo stand-alone movie is anyone's guess at the moment. However, we do think it would be a great device to see an older Han Solo being used as a framing device that leads audiences into a flashback, telling the story of his earlier years.

What do you think of the latest rumor regarding Ford's return to the role of Han Solo?

Mark Hamill: 'Star Wars' cast in talks to reunite for 'Episode VII'

Will Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia share the silver screen again? Hamill says that he may join Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford in the new trilogy.

The force may be with a 'Star Wars' cast reunion after all.

Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the original blockbuster series, revealed to Entertainment Tonight that he is currently in talks about dusting off his light saber and reprising his classic role.

He'd be joining Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, a.k.a. Han Solo and Princess Leia, too.

"George [LUCAS] wanted to know whether we'd be interested. He did say that if we didn't want to do it, they wouldn't cast another actor in our parts — they would write us out," Hamill said.

But lest fans get too encouraged, Hamill reminded watchers that the deals on 'Episode VII' are far from being inked.

"I can tell you right away that we haven't signed any contracts," Hamill said.

Mark Hamill may join Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher in he new episode of 'Star Wars.'

"We're in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm."

Hamill went on to note that those meetings had been postponed because both Andt and Kennedy are "busier than I am."

But in the case of a cast reunion, it looks like a case of all or nothing. Hamill commented that he would be reluctant to do the movie if Ford and Fisher aren't also on board.

"Another thing I'd want to make sure of is — are we going to have the whole gang back? Is Carrie and Harrison and Billy Dee [WILLIAMS] and Tony Daniels, everybody that's around from the original, [COMING BACK]?"

Maybe so. Hamill's news comes on the heels of recent reports that Harrison Ford is set to return as the high-flying Millennium Falcon captain Han Solo.

Whether he's a part of the new trilogy or not, Hamill has some advice for he creative minds behind "Episode VII": Keep it simple.

"I said to George that I wanted to go back to the way it was, in the sense that ours was much more carefree and lighthearted and humorous," Hamill said, criticizing recent installments for special effects overkill.

"If they listen to me at all, it'll be 'Lighten up and go retro with the way it looks.'"
