ROTJ AT 30: R.I.P. FOR HAN SOLO?
"No Dead Han toy range for you!"
Right into filming of RETURN OF THE JEDI, Harrison Ford had tried to convince George Lucas, with Howard Kazanjian, that killing off Han Solo would give the film some hard-hitting depth to the audience in the midst of all the teddy bear heroics, but the STAR WARS saga creator was not having any of it. Good thing, too, as we may still have the eternal fan favourite back for the new Sequel odyssey, which starts filming next year!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY today to Mister Ford, who speaks about JEDI here: Harrison Ford: They should have killed Han Solo - YouTube
