Harrison Ford has confirmed his place in the next Star Wars extravaganza, Star Wards Episode VII, according to Latino Review scooper El Mayimbe.
In the past Ford has tried to distance himself from the series, such as in when Empire Strikes Back was in production, requesting that George Lucas would kill off his character. Yet now luckily he has changed his mind.
This is not the first time new Star Wars director J.J. Abrams has worked closely with Ford, with Abrams writing Regarding Henry and producing Morning Glory, however this will be the first time that he gets to direct the star.
The Latino Review has had a positive history in revealing particular scoops, so we expect the news to develop soon officially of Ford’s involvement in the series, of course depending if the story is true.
It will definitely be essential for Ford to take part in the series to hopefully create a solid connection between the old and new movies, and ensure that the original fans will have at least one old man to recognise.
