In the full interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Harrison Ford (dressed like a hot dog) had plenty to say about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, especially for someone who said he couldn't talk about it. "What is there to say? I want people to experience it," the actor said.

But outside of his excitement for other peoples' performances in the film, he talked about how George Lucas was "the author of the early chapters of my life, and gave me the opportunity to have an extraordinary life."

He said that J.J. Abrams then, gave him the chance to have a "wonderful part in a great movie."

Originally, he did talk to George Lucas and the writers of the original trilogy about killing off Han Solo in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

"I thought it would be good that the character who appeared to have not so much of a complex interweaving with the Force and all that good stuff, I thought it would be good if he sacrificed himself in some noble way," he said. Of course, when Kimmel asked him, "Are you glad now that Han Solo did not get killed off?" The actor answered with an emphatic, "Yes."


We are, too, Harrison.
