Watch Harrison Ford Gleefully Refuse to Say He's Done With the Star Wars Sequels

We probably shouldn’t read too much into it, but Harrison Ford returned yet again to Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote The Force Awakens, coming soon on digital download (god knows it needed the press). But when Kimmel asked him if he was definitely not coming back for more sequels, Ford playfully dodged the question... repeatedly.


Maybe Han Solo will get a Force vision flashback, maybe he landed on a big pile of mattresses at the bottom of Starkiller Base and bounced into a bacta tank that also happened to be in an escape pod. The part that blows my mind is Harrison Ford “playfully” doing anything. I have literally never seen the notorious grump act so silly before, especially when it involves Star Wars. I wonder if it might have something to do with his other notorious, alleged habit.

Or maybe he’s just that thrilled he finally managed to kill Han Solo off. As he said, he’s been trying to make that happen for over 30 years. If I were him I’d celebrate too.

Rob Bricken was the Editor of io9 from 2016-18, the creator of the poorly named but fan-favorite news site Topless Robot, and now writes nerd stuff for many places, because it's all he's good at.

If you think he can’t come back as a force ghost, you haven’t been paying attention.

If you think he shouldn’t come back as a force ghost, you have.
