An original modified DL-44 Han Solo’s blaster used in the filming of the two latest Star Wars movies starring Harrison Ford is set for auction for at least $200,000 via online. This slightly lighter blaster was custom made in resin from a cast of the blaster used in 1977?s Star Wars and is even emblazoned with the same serial number as the lost original weapon.

It’s important, when you wear jewelry, to wear something that has real meaning to you. Gemstones, metals, many things can have a deep, personal association to you and should be worn with pride. Which is why we went out and found a tiny little Harrison Ford to put on your finger.

It’s long been known that we’ll be getting a new Star Wars movie every summer starting in 2015 with Star Wars: Episode VII. For the first six movies, we will see a new trilogy that continues the storyline set up in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace through Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, which will alternate with three standalone adventures.

1. David Lynch and David Cronenberg both turned down the job of directing “Jedi.” Instead, Lynch would go on to make his own sci-fi epic, 1984′s “Dune,” while Cronenberg would make the hit horror films “The Dead Zone” (1983) and “The Fly” (1986).
2. Welsh filmmaker Richard Marquand had previously directed the 1981 World War II spy thriller “Eye of the Needle.” It was that film that brought him to the attention of George Lucas and ultimately earned him the directing job on “Jedi.”

Harrison Ford is currently experiencing a new excellent phase in his career. The actor, who turned 70 last year and whose new movie, “42,” comes out next month, has found himself in high demand to reprise his iconic roles of Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard in three different sequels. In other words, this feels like 1980 again!

UPDATE 03/19: “I think it’s almost true, I’m looking forward to it. It’s not in the bag yet, but I think it’s happening.”

Since Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, there’s a lot going on on the Star Wars front. First it was announced that Star Wars: Episode VII would be hitting cinemas in 2015, with a script from Michael Arndt and direction by JJ Abrams. We also learned Lawrence Kasdan (who co-wrote The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) and Simon Kinberg would be writing stand alone Star Wars films, but who would those films focus on?
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Han Solo and Boba Fett will be getting their own movies.

Harrison Ford’s relationship with Han Solo, the character he played in the original “Star Wars” trilogy, is what you might call … complicated. As a Han Solo fan myself, I always watch interviews hoping to hear him talk about Solo, and I can’t help but ask why he’s generally open to discussing Indiana Jones but he tends to bristle when reporters raise the subject of Solo, unless the topic is how the character should have died. However, in a surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention as obsessively as I have, Ford has recently said that he’d be “open to the idea” of returning for 2015′s “Star Wars: Episode VII.” What changed? Let’s look back at the long, often contentious relationship between Harrison Ford and Han Solo and see if we can find out.
