Harrison Ford talks ‘Indiana Jones 5’ and advises next Han Solo

News of a new Indiana Jones film excited fans and Harrison Ford spoke about the news and offered some advice for the next Han Solo.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Ford did not hold back his enthusiasm for Indiana Jones 5.

“I’ll be ready. I’m excited about it,” he said. When Jimmy Kimmel asked if the filmmakers had come up with an idea that appealed to Ford, he eagerly agreed — but he wasn’t referring to the script, which he hasn’t read. “I’m talking about the contract!” he joked.

Ford then confessed that what he’s excited for “the opportunity to work with Steven[Spielberg] again on this character… the chance to revisit this character, which has brought pleasure to so many people — not to mention me.” He added, “It’s great fun to play this character, it’s great fun to work with Steven, I’m looking forward to it.”

A new Han Solo film, presumably a Star Wars: A New Hope prequel will arrive in 2018 after the character finally met an end in Force Awakens.

However, he hinted that this doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve seen the end of Han Solo. When Kimmel asked whether Han Solo might somehow continue to appear in the movies, Ford mimed locking up his lips and throwing away the key.

Ford also appeared The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and DeGeneres pressed him for his thoughts on casting “the new Han Solo.”

“No. Not a new Han Solo,” he corrected her. “It’s worse than that. It’s a young Han Solo.”

He then served up some tongue-in-cheek advice for the young actor who lands the role: “Don’t do it. First, you know, it seems like everything’s going swimmingly, and you put in 25, 30 years, and then they just — they just let you go. And they show you the door: ‘We’re done with you, thanks very much.'”

 

 

 

The Han Solo spinoff arrives in theaters May 25, 2018 and Indiana Jones 5 is dated for July 19, 2019.
