Rumored Appearance of Han Solo Could Indeed Be For ‘The Book of Boba Fett’


A little while back we reported a rumor that discussed that Harrison Ford could be returning to a Disney+ Star Wars series as Han Solo, using the same de-aging technology that they used for Luke Skywalker in the end ‘The Mandalorian Season 2.’

Previously it was speculated that his return would be for either the ‘Book of Boba Fett’ or ‘The Mandalorian Season 3.’  It seems there is more confirmation that it is indeed true that he is returning and it could be for ‘The Book of Boba Fett.’

According to The Sun, Harrison Ford spent three days filming in London for a cameo in the final episode. This would have been during the filming for ‘Indiana Jones 5.’

Han Solo has already been killed in the ‘Star Wars’ universe having been sabered by his son Kylo Ren in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ However, ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ and ‘The Mandalorian’ take place in the time before that film.

There are seven episodes in ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ season and only the first episode has aired so far, but the second one is out tomorrow. Leaving the final episode from February 9th, 2022.

Here’s the schedule for the series:

Episode 1: December 29, 2021

Episode 2: January 5, 2022

Episode 3: January 12, 2022 

Episode 4: January 19, 2022

Episode 5: January 26, 2022

Episode 6: February 2, 2022

Episode 7: February 9, 2022

I have to admit, I’m really hoping this rumor is true because Han Solo is another fan favorite character that fans would love to see again! Even thought Ford is 79-years-old, if they can do what they did for Mark Hamill with Luke Skywalker, I would love to see it.

Again, it’s all rumor and speculation, but it’s coming from multiple sources now. We reported on it a few weeks back. We’ll keep an eye out, but it won’t be that long until we know for sure.
