Last week Viral Hide posted a little rumor that everyone's favorite scruffy-looking nerfherder was going to play a major role in Episode VII and possibly the Sequel Trilogy. In case you over-looked it with all the swirling rumors and news it went something like this:
The new cast members will join returning Star Wars alums Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. The big surprise, I’m told, is that Ford has a gigantic role in the first of the next three films. Disney hasn’t been commenting on any of this, and today’s no different. Stay tuned.
Well, we now have a little more confirmation of this same rumor from a second source, Anthony Breznican of Entertainment Weekly was on their Sirius Satellite program and basically seconded this rumor:
That Harrison Ford's Han Solo is one of the leads of this story [...] But Han Solo, I think, is the most important of all the Star Wars characters . . .
