Sources close to the just announced Star Wars sequel told EW’s Geoff Boucher that Harrison Ford would be open to the idea of possibly returning to the film franchise as Corellian smuggler-turned-Rebel Alliance hero Han Solo. But we also know that Ford had lobbied during production of the original trilogy for his character to be killed. One might theorize, then, that for Ford to agree to come back, he may insist Solo bite the dust. (Insert despondent Wookiee howl here.)
If that were to happen, how would you like to see the scruffy nerf herder go? Should he be blown to smithereens in a classic space dogfight? Should he go down in an old school blaster duel (even though he totally would shoot first)? Or should he just, like, get sick and… you know, die in his sleep. Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing a Boba Fett-Han Solo duel to the death, and since George Lucas has said that Fett did not, in fact, perish in the Sarlacc on Tatooine, I suppose that is a possibility. But what about you? What terrible fate would you like to impose upon the man who once served as Jabba the Hutt’s favorite wall decoration? Isn’t it time we finally gave Harrison Ford his “dying wish” and sent him out in style? Hit the message boards and let us know how you’d like to see it go down in Episode VII.
