Harrison Ford is apparently set to return to Episode VII as Han Solo. The scoop comes from Latino Review’s El Mayimbe, who says it’s a done deal, and while his sources can be solid, obviously it is not official in any way. Also, obviously, Old Han Solo and friends doesn’t exactly sound like the J.J. Abrams franchise reboot fans had been waiting for. It’s not as bad as Shia LaBeouf as Young Han Solo in a separate planned spinoff, but still — this could be weird.
