Harrison Ford Won't Comment on Han Solo's Relationship Status in Star Wars: The Force Awakens
During Harrison Ford's interview on Good Morning America Tuesday morning, host Amy Robach did her best to get some details about Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the fans desperate as the film is now only two weeks and change away. She asked first about the character's status in general.
"He's got a more complex story now," Ford said of his character, "a little bit more of an emotional context than perhaps there was before."
"But he's still the same guy," he said, delivering Solo's trademark grin all the while.
As for romantically? "Can you tell us that?" Robach asked.
"Uh... no," he said with a laugh. "I can't go that far."
In the trailers we've seen so far, it could go either way with Han and Leia, as they don't appear in many scenes jointly. Leia's in the war room, Han's in the Millennium Falcon - though that could just be as simple as him going on a field mission. The one shot of the pair sees her resting her head on his chest, Han comforting her. It could be just a couple after a long, difficult day at war, or it could be a reunion after too long apart. For context, in the now-abandoned "Expanded Universe" that explored more Star Wars timelines via novels and comic books, Leia and Han were married and had three children (though that didn't go too well for them, either).
We'll find out the answer to that question, and more, on December 18, 2015.
