We enter a room. There, an utterly elegant Harrison Ford in a gray suit, short gray hair and a youthful earring on his left ear, is expecting for us. He stands up, goes to the minibar and offers water. A courtesy that allows me to ask about his attitude with journalists since his last answer about the subject two years ago was “to give an interview is like to go to the dentist.”

Tension rules the galaxy. The most powerful weapon of the Empire, the Death Star, threatens to disintegrate the last remaining of the resistance. A group of rebels sails their ships regardless hope. Everything is ready for the final battle involving lightsabers, hyperspace and spectacular space battles. In the middle of the apparent calm before the storm, a yellow cab passes through and hits one of our heroes. Wait… what? We should fire this writer.
“One thing for sure, Han Solo could not die hit by a cab” – Harrison laughs. But beyond his joke, the actor confesses that he wanted Han Solo to die in Return of the Jedi. “I thought he deserved a heroic death. I thought at that point, the most sensitive and moving thing for Han to do was sacrifice himself so the rest of the main characters would be able to survive.”

The highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII has been kept tightly under wraps since it was first announced, especially considering it’s set to film in May of this year for release in 2015. Even Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill are yet to be confirmed as returning to their iconic roles. But now, we may just have our first glimpse at some concept art from the film.
Behind this meeting between director J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy, VFX supervisors John Knoll, production designer Rick Carter, Chief Strategy Officer Kim Libreri, and senior VP of Physical Production Jason McGatlin, we can clearly see the beloved Millennium Falcon, property of Han Solo. Isn’t it beautiful? And it always works when you need it (sort of).

The Empire Galactic Era was a time when you needed to be tough to survive, especially if you were in the smuggling/rebel business. In other words, if you were approached by another smuggler for a debt to a Hutt you needed to shoot first, otherwise what is the point of being a scoundrel armed with a blaster if you are not going to be moody and shoot at things?
Just because, here are another ten scenes that make Han Solo what we love about him: a goddarn cold blooded (sometimes laserbrain) smuggler!
