I think everyone is pretty much set on the idea that Harrison Ford is returning as Han Solo in Episode VII. But what about the other two members of the original trio?
Well, Mark Hamill spoke to Entertainment Tonight and revealed that Lucasfilm has been talking to him and there are meetings planned with him:
“They’re talking to us,” he reveals. “George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we’d be interested. He did say that if we didn’t want to do it, they wouldn’t cast another actor in our parts – they would write us out. … I can tell you right away that we haven’t signed any contracts. We’re in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed — on their end, not mine. They’re more busy than I am.”
It looks like the stars are aligning.
