You probably can’t see me if you’re sitting at home, unless I left my web camera open again (which has been known to happen as my numerous sex scandals reveal), but I’m in the midst of the geekiest dance celebration ever. It’s an honest half “Wobble” and a shameful bit of the “Truffle Shuffle”.
Why am I so happy?
Harrison Ford. That damn space smuggler wants back in the Star Wars universe with EPISODE 7. You heard me right. Han Solo is coming back.
That bit of news may have shocked your system, so feel free to take some time to let this all sink in. I’ll be waiting right here, just minding my own business, not peeping at your nerdgasmic shame through my semi-legal webcam hack or anything like that.
Ahem… so are you ready for more? Apparently Ford, who’s previously disparaged his role in the Star Wars films, is eager to return, and at a spry 70 years of age, hopefully he’ll be back in proper form. With our latest news regarding Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, it looks like the original cast is more than ready to push the franchise forward.
Here’s what EW’s super secret sources had to say on the matter…
“Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it, all three of them are,” said one highly placed source, referring to Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, the trio that made a hyper-speed jump to global fame on May 25, 1977, the opening night for George Lucas’s original Star Wars film.
So what do you think? Are you ready for a true sequel?
