People say that the older you get, the more wiser you become. Could this be true for Harrison Ford's beloved "Star Wars" character, Han Solo, in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”? Or will fans see the wise-cracking Millennium Falcon pilot who always seems to find trouble?
Han Solo once boldly responded to Princess Leia's declaration that she loves him by saying "I know," while also getting into a bit of money trouble with Jabba the Hut along the way. However, the older Han Solo shown in the "Episode 7" previews so far doesn't quite seem to act the same way he used to.
In one of the trailer's Han Solo is shown saying, "It’s true. All of it. The dark side. The Jedi. They’re real." Many "Star Wars" fans thought this was a look at a different, wiser Han Solo, but Ford told Entertainment Weekly that fans can still expect to see some of the old character traits in the new film -- but don't expect him to be Yoda wise.
"He does not aspire to the position of Obi-‘Ben’ Kenobi, nor do I aspire to be some New Age Alec Guinness. His development is consistent with the character, and there are emotional elements which have occasioned his growth," Ford dished.
Among those old traits, is money issues which Ford said Han Solo still hasn't figured out. He said a lot of the movie will look at how he "fails to master basic skills, like accounting."
"And accounting for his own behavior. There’s a lot of the rogue still left in Solo. Some things don’t change,” Ford explained.
While Ford disclosed a little bit about what to expect from Solo, he still hasn't said much about fan-favorite Jedi, Luke Skywalker. Skywalker has been left off promotions for the upcoming movie, but Ford said there is a reason for that.
On "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Ford teased that Skywalker was left off the movie poster because "there wasn't room." He later opened up a little bit more, but wouldn't give away any details.
"No, there’s a very good reason. I can’t tell you. Nothing."
