PEOPLE – Harrison Ford is willing to give the shirt off his back for a good cause.

 

Or, maybe a jacket.

 

The actor is auctioning off the rugged jacket he wore as Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens to benefit epilepsy research. The actor’s daughter Georgia has been living with the disease, and Ford has been an outspoken proponent for the cause.

 

The actor’s first scene in The Force Awakens – his first appearance in any Star Wars film in more than 30 years – features him wearing the signature piece of clothing, and the scene immediately sent fans into a frenzy at screenings.

EW – If you have the chance to talk to one of the most celebrated scruffy smugglers in the galaxy, what do you ask? In celebration of the upcoming DVD release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in April, Han Solo himself took over EW’s Tumblr page to talk about acting advice, his love for Hamilton, and what movies he likes to watch.

 

The actor answered burning fan questions that included everything from how he likes his coffee (in a cup, of course) to if fellow Star Wars cast member John Boyega really is his best friend (“Whatever John says…”). And yes, he addressed THAT scene in The Force Awakens…

EW – Lucasfilm just got the boulder rolling again …

 

Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will be reteaming for another Indiana Jones movie, set for release in summer of 2019.

 

Here’s the announcement:

 

Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.

 

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

 

Famed archaeologist and explorer Indiana Jones was introduced in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark – one of AFI’s 100 Greatest American Films of All Time – and later thrilled audiences in 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The four films have brought in nearly $2 billion at the global box office.

 

The announcement didn’t indicate who might be writing the screenplay for the film, although they surely have top men (or women) working on it right now.
