I spent most of last week listening to podcasts and reading about the new Star Wars movie, that is set to be released in late 2015. There seems to be a lot of speculation about Harrison Ford's participation in the new trilogy with numerous fan websites believing Ford has only signed up for the movie in order for Han Solo to be killed off.
I don't really know what to make of this.
If the hardcore fans are okay with it, then I guess they won't be that annoyed if Solo dies in Episode VII.
I, on the other hand, am not as hardcore and would rather see the original characters continue through the new trilogy and pave the way for the next generation.
Don't get me wrong - killing off Han Solo does intrigue me. After all, they do have three movies in the series to make. I'm just not convinced it's a good idea.
Fans have spent the past thirty-one years believing the Galaxy far, far away has lived happily ever after. I feel there's going to be uproar from some sides if they do decide to kill him.
Call it a gut feeling.
Or, better yet - a strange disturbance in the force.
