UPDATE! Harrison Ford Will Reprise His Role As Han Solo In Episode 7?

According to Latino Review this latest scoop is a done deal. Latino Review is a very credible source for rumors especially those connected to Marvel. Could they be right about this one too? Read their story after the break.


Good morning cool kids!
What’s poppin’?
Star Wars, man!
I still can’t believe there is going to be another another trilogy.
I’m not going to lie, I was one of those who were of the opinion that all the recent Star Wars news was a tad overkill. I wanted to disconnect my internet until 2015.
I thought lots of folks felt the same way I did.
Boy was I wrong.
I took an informal twitter poll and asked my followers if they wanted Star Wars scoops. The response was overwhelming.  Even my inbox got bombed like never before.
Man, y’all really want Star Wars scoops!
After trying to avoid the circus, I’m now smack dab right in the middle of it.
So like a Corellian smuggler I went on the prowl and I came up with something BIG.
How big?
Big enough that for the first time, I went on a cable news channel to actually drop the scoop. I’m a fan of what they are trying to do by engaging Latino audiences so I went and paid Victor Garcia over at FoxNewsLatino a visit to talk about my accidental scoop career, and also about a certain Corellian smuggler.
So yeah. Harrison Ford is back as Han Solo. How awesome is that?!

UPDATE!

Although Latino Review is indeed a credible source they occasionally like to claim obvious things and when they turn out to be true to act like they were the first to announce it.
If you remember  a few months back EW.com reported that according to their sources:

 “Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it, all three of them are,” said one highly placed source, referring to Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher."
 Now after Latino Review's article, Geoff Boucher tweeted this:


And The Hollywood Reporter reaction:


So it looks like the deal is indeed going to happen the question is when. The direction of using some old cast members proves that even after J.J. Abrams was hired they decided to continue with the story after the Return of the Jedi.
