Harrison Ford’s Thoughts On Another Actor Playing Han Solo

Harrison Ford is the very definition of a living legend. The man has brought life to countless beloved characters including Indiana Jones, Rick Deckard, Dr. Richard Kimble, Jack Ryan, President James Marshall, and, of course, the one, the only, Han Solo! If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and I’m pretty sure you have, then you know his time as the beloved space pirate is over.  Now, let’s all go have a good cry again. 

But, there’s a new Han Solo in town. In the still Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story, Alden Ehrenreich will bring the smuggler with a heart of gold back to life, in a film directed by Phil Lord and Chrisopher Miller, best known for directing The Lego Movie and both 21 Jump Street films. The film is currently in production with a release date of May 25, 2018, and Harrison Ford already has some thoughts. When asked at Star Wars Celebration if he was looking forward to a Han Solo movie, as a fan, he said this: 

“Not really. Now I’ll be watching it as a, as a… yeah of course I’ll be watching it as a fan. But it will be weird. It will be a little weird.”

Ford continued to redeem himself by saying:

“I met the fella’s that’s going to play the younger Han Solo. Wonderful guy, very sweet, and a very good actor. So, I’m delighted in the choice.”

So that’s it! Solo on young Solo! Seeing as Harrison Ford is somehow one of Hollywood’s biggest stoners, I bet it will be weird to see someone else slip not only into his captain’s chair, but also his jacket and pants. Really, really, weird. Like, I’m freaking out, man.

Do you think Ford was sincere with his first answer or his backtracking? Was he making a joke when he said, “Not really,” or was that his first thought before course-correcting on behalf of Lucasfilm? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
