Harrison Ford avoids questions about Star Wars return

Praising the Star Wars director J.J. Abrams as a wonderful talent, Harrison Ford mentioned that he is still not ready to be a part of the Stars Wars sequel planned by Disney.

The actor rose to fame for his portrayal of Han Solo in the Stars Wars trilogy. Ford also acted in ‘Regarding Henry’, the debut movie of Abrams more than two decades ago.

Even before Lucas Films were sold to Disney, George Lucas told Bloomberg Businessweek that negotiations were going on with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford to make a comeback to the franchise.

The Indiana Jones star was last seen in 2011 in Cowboys and Aliens and he has numerous films lined up to be released in the 2013 and 2014. The 70-year-old actor maintained silence with the universal ‘zipping my lips’ sign and didn’t make a single comment about the sequel or his intentions to act in it. Ford also avoided the question very elegantly, when asked whether recently he was having discussions with Abrams.

The first Star Wars movie ‘IV: A New Hope’ was created by George Lucas in 1977 and the last one ‘The Clone Wars’ came out in 2008. ‘VII’ is slated to be released in 2015.
