Either by sleeping in a dumpster outside Kathleen Kennedy’s house, or by summoning the power of Daisuke, the Japanese shrieking god of invisibility, to haunt the halls of Disney development offices and learn what he can, Latino Review has managed to out-scoop practically everyone on Star Wars Episode VII news since the new trilogy was first announced and now it looks like they’ve got a whopper. Whether it was the size of the paycheck or the amount of Curmudgeon Juice he was promised, Harrison Ford has finalized a deal to reprise his role as Han Solo in Episode VII.
We had reported back in November before any deals were in place that Ford went on record saying he was down to step back onto the bridge of Millenium Falcon for one more try at that ol’ Kessel Run. This despite the fact that he’d spent the better part of the last twenty-five years ripping the role apart. Maybe it was because no one went to see Cowboys & Aliens or maybe because at 70-years-old, he thinks being washed out by lens flares takes ten years off his face, but something got him to change his mind and we couldn’t be happier. Now JJ, please, please, I beg you. Let the man shoot first, for the love of God. And keep him away from any fridges.
