Harrison Ford confirms Star Wars role… pretty much

March 19th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Harrison Ford has confirmed that he will almost certainly be playing Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII.

The Indiana Jones star was speaking to WGN during a Chicago event for his Conservation International organisation, when asked about a role in the forthcoming film directed by JJ Abrams.

He said:  “I think it’s almost true. I’m looking forward to it. It’s not in the bag yet, but I think it’s happening.”

Ford is the third member of the Big Three from the Original Trilogy to confirm likely involvement, after Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher said they were coming back for the forthcoming film.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
