Harrison Ford Confirmed For Abrams’ ‘Star Wars Episode VII’


Harrison Ford has officially signed on to reprise his iconic role of Millennium Falcon pilot and all-round heroic scoundrel, Han Solo, in Disney’s forthcoming, STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, which will be directed by geek-God J. J. Abrams, from a script by Oscar-winner, Michael Arndt.  

Although not yet announced by Disney or the LucasFilm production company they purchased late last year, strong sources at Latino Review (always a reputable name for news scoops) announced on Fox News that it’s a “done deal”!

There is currently no word yet on how much his character will feature, but considering he’s the first casting being confirmed, we suspect it’s certainly not going to be a cameo.

This puts a bit more cement into the rumours Arndt’s script will include characters from George Lucas’ early space saga. We wait with anticipation for Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher to follow suit. Also expect walking Wookie rug, Chewbacca, to be included.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.

    “Also expect walking Wookie rug, Chewbacca, to be included.” All the actors are now 30 years older (and some actually look more like 40 years older…), so since Chewie died about 21 years after episode VI, it’s pretty unlikely he’ll be featured in VII.
