Harrison Ford has surprised no-one by saying he'd "rather not" return as Han Solo in Star Wars.

Of course, a Han Solo return is unlikely given he was killed off in The Force Awakens, but it wouldn't be unusual for Star Wars to find a way around it, as Ford puts to GQ: "It is science fiction."

He had previously lobbied for Han to be killed off in Return of the Jedi, so it wasn't a shock that Han's death was brought up the very first time he was asked about returning to Star Wars.

"I think it was mentioned [by George Lucas], even in the first call, that he would not survive. That's something I'd been arguing for for some period of time," Ford recalled.

"I'm finished with Star Wars if Star Wars is finished with me. I'd rather not [return]. You know, at this point, I'd rather do something else. Just because it's more interesting to do something new."

We can't be the only ones thinking that Deckard might not survive Blade Runner 2049 after these comments…

Ford isn't even that interested in the Han Solo spin-off movie. He was asked on stage at Star Wars Celebration earlier this year if he was looking forward to the movie and he said "not really".

"Of course I'll be watching it as a fan," he quickly added. "It'll be a little weird. But you know, I've meet the fella who's gonna play the younger Han Solo. Wonderful guy, very sweet, and a very good actor. So I'm delighted in the choice."

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released in UK cinemas on December 14 and US cinemas on December 15 and, whether Ford likes it or not, the Han Solo spin-off hits cinemas on May 25, 2018.
