Rumor: J.J. Abrams Signed Harrison Ford for 'Star Wars: Episode VII'
Though this isn't entirely unexpected, if this rumor turns out to be true, it's just good news and helps make Star Wars: Episode VII even more of a reality. The trustworthy scoopers over at Latino Review have decided to jump from the comic book movie news game into the world of Star Wars, and they've learned that Harrison Ford is already signed for the first film in the new trilogy. Considering we heard that Ford, along with Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, were all open to reprising their original trilogy roles as of last November, this isn't groundbreaking, but it's just good to hear that Han Solo will be around. More below!
This news comes just after hearing that Disney was planning several standalone spin-off films featuring characters from the Star Wars universe. This supposedly includes a film following a younger Boba Fett, and also a young Han Solo (read our list of potential replacements, with room for age adjustment). We just wish there were some story details to go along with this rumor to make it feel a little more legitimate. But we trust the guys at Latino Review, and hope that an official announcement is around the corner. Of course, with Abrams at the helm, don't expect to get anything too juicy from the studio.
