Harrison Ford recently addressed the death of Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and his surprise return in The Rise of Skywalker.
Many fans were surprised at the death and subsequent return of Harrison Ford’s Han Solo across the new Star Wars trilogy, but now the star has addressed why that happened by jokingly blaming the idea on director J.J. Abrams. Harrison Ford’s Han Solo made a shock appearance in The Rise of Skywalker as a way of helping turn Kylo Ren turn away from the dark side after his fight with Rey.
As long time fans know, Harrison Ford wanted Han Solo to die in the original trilogy. Although many years later he finally got his wish when Han Solo was killed by his own son Ben/Kylo. In a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Harrison Ford explained that he felt Han Solo’s character had been exhausted by this point and it would have been an emotional punch for the audience to see the hero to die. Harrison Ford went on to joke that it was all J.J. Abrams’ idea to bring back Han Solo. Take a look at the star discussing Han Solo’s return below.
“I figured that his utility had been exhausted, bled out, and was … well, I was willing to die for the cause. Bring some gravitas. No good deed goes unpunished. J.J. said, ‘This is a good idea. I, J.J., have decided that this is a good idea and I would like you to do it,’”
