Another great interview with Harrison talking about BLADE RUNNER 2049 and the original BLADE RUNNER. Again being candid about his career and private life, Harrison is very praiseworthy of Ryan Gosling, Denis Villeneuve and the film, while remaining non-committal about his past with Ridley Scott. He also talks about Han Solo’s death and takes his hat off for Mark Hamill’s (Luke Skywalker) herculean task of keeping the STAR WARS franchise on the straight and narrow in light of the sudden passing of co-star Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa). All in all a wonderful interview.



Harrison sat down with PBS’ Charlie Rose to discuss BLADE RUNNER 2049 and bringing Rick Deckard back after thirty-five years. He also talks about flying, life and why Han Solo had to die. It’s a very revealing interview, which is a bit shocking for someone like Harrison who has guarded his privacy for so long.



In the press junket for BLADE RUNNER 2049, Harrison stopped by Live With Kelly & Ryan to discuss the film. He also dispelled any rumours of his return to the STAR WARS franchise as Han Solo saying the character is dead. I loved what he said about the “utility of the character.” Though I’m still not happy with STAR WARS VI: THE FORCE AWAKENS in that it wasn’t an original film, Harrison did finally get his wish to have Han killed off. In my mind though he’s still in his seat on the Millennium Falcon with Chewy galaxy hopping. Ah the memories. He also talked about his first role in DEAD HEAT ON A MERRY-GO-ROUND and the story about his being told he wasn’t a “star”. You can find the screencaps from that film in this post: “Dead Heat On A Merry-Go-Round” Screencaps .

EW – Thousands of voices cried out and were suddenly silenced Thursday — awestruck as 40 years of galactic history united on stage before them.

 

At the opening event of Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday, original Star Wars director George Lucas and original stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels celebrated 40 years of the saga and paid tribute to Carrie Fisher in the process (more on the Fisher tribute here).

 

The event was hosted by Warwick Davis, who was just a boy when he played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and most recently appeared as a tiny Rebel warrior in Rogue One. Also in attendance were Billy Dee Williams, Hayden Christiansen, Ian McDiarmid, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

 

Ahead, highlights from the event as it happened in real-time.

 

— Kicks off with a video showing footage of fans lined up a long time ago: May 1977, outside the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood when the original movie premiered to sell-0ut crowds. It cuts to shots of present-day kids, dressed in costumes at recent Celebration conventions, accompanied by their parents (many of them dressed as their favorites heroes, villains, and creatures, too.)

Normally I wouldn’t post about Harrison’s personal relationships but this was 40 years ago and its more about his response to her telling him it was in the book.

PEOPLE – One might expect Harrison Ford to have had a few choice words for Carrie Fisher when she gave him a friendly heads-up about a book she was writing that would publicly reveal their 1976 affair.

 

Instead, the dry-witted actor uttered just one.

 

“He went, ‘Lawyer!’ ” Fisher tells PEOPLE.

 

The actress-author, 60, took his reaction as playful, if resigned, and assured her Star Wars costar she’d send him an early copy and said she was open to any notes.

 

Indeed, Fisher, who was just 19 at the time of their whirlwind romance during the original Star Wars shoot, sent Ford an early manuscript for The Princess Diarist, exclusively excerpted in this week’s issue of PEOPLE.

 

“I called him and said, ‘Where are you? I’m sending it to you,’ ” she recalls. “I don’t want to embarrass anyone and he’s very private. I said, ‘I know you’re not going to be excited but …’ ”

 

No notes from Ford were forthcoming. (And he did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.)



According to multiple reports, a funeral scene most likely filmed in Dubrovnik in Croatia will have major repercussions on the political landscape of the galaxy…

DORK SIDE OF THE FORCE – According to multiple reports, a funeral scene most likely filmed in Dubrovnik in Croatia will have major repercussions on the political landscape of the galaxy…

 

When Kylo Ren — formerly known as Ben Solo — drove his plasma bladed lightsaber through the heart of his father, Han Solo, it was one of the most shocking moments in Star Wars cinematic history. It set a darker tone to what had been a more or less lighthearted Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

 

Now according to some digging by Vine Report, it would appear as if Han Solo’s death will have far reaching repercussions throughout the galaxy.

 

“Han’s life may be over but “The Force Awakens” will definitely not be the last time that the fan-favorite smuggler will be referred to in the future installments of “Star Wars.” In fact, rumor has it that the upcoming installment in the space soap opera will have an emotional funeral for General Solo and will be a venue for the start of political talks in the galaxy.”

 

This all vibes with what we reported two-months earlier, when photos of citizens of an as yet unnamed planet were dressed in black robes and a galactic-type police force was seen filming scenes.
