We've already heard that Harrison Ford and the rest of the original cast from the Star Wars films will be coming back to reprise their roles. Now Ford is talking about returning to the character that made him famous and he says he's looking forward to it!
WGN caught up with the actor and asked him if the rumors we've been hearing were true. This was his response...
I think it's amost true, I'm looking forward to it. It's not in the bag yet, but I think it's happening.
So there's another bit of solid confirmation that everything points to the original cast returning. Back in the day I thought there was no way Ford would come back as Solo, so it's really cool to hear him say he's excited about it!
Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to hit theaters in 2015. J.J. Abrams is set to direct from a script by Michael Arndt. Along with the new trilogy, we'll also be getting some stand alone character films, which I'm also really looking forward to!
