Surly 77-year-old actor Harrison Ford may be set to reprise his iconic role as Indiana Jones, but when it comes to Han Solo, Ford is clearly sick and tired of it. In an interview with USA Today, Ford was asked how his character was able to come back for Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, and he had a very simple answer: he doesn't know and he doesn't care.
"When JJ asked me to do it, I said, 'Are you kidding? I'm dead!" Ford said. But after JJ Abrams convinced him to return for the film, Ford resigned himself to doing it… but into knowing how his dead character was able to appear. Han Solo's ghost appears to have a discussion with his son, Ben Solo, played by Adam Driver, in order to help Ben progress toward the ultimate redemption of his character. Though Han Solo is clearly a figment of his son's imagination, fans have wondered whether he's actually a force ghost. But for Ford, the distinction doesn't really matter.
"A Force ghost? I don't know what a Force ghost is. Don't tell anyone. I'm not talking loud enough for your recorder. I have no f**king idea what a Force ghost is. And I don't care!"
Well said, Harrison. Well said.
Indiana Jones 5 is set to begin filming this year, and the best part about it is that Harrison Ford likely doesn't know or care how a 77-year-old will be able to engage in high-stakes action hijinx with a whip and a fedora. So f**k you for wondering, Jonesbronies.
