Star Wars back from hia­tus

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - REELNEWS ON THE RECORD -

You thought we were jok­ing. But Star Wars news is back af­ter a week’s hol­i­day. Two of the se­ries’ stars are re­ported to be in­ter­ested in re­turn­ing for Dis­ney’s ex­pan­sion of the fran­chise.

Ewan McGre­gor, ev­ery­one’s sec­ond favourite Obi Wan Kenobi, has ex­pressed a de­sire to ap­pear in one of the stand-alone episodes. “I think it’s a good idea,” McGre­gor told MTV News. “The only bit that I could get away with do­ing is af­ter the last one I made, Episode III, be­fore Alec Guin­ness, there’s that pe­riod where he’s in the desert.”

Else­where in the em­pire, Har­ri­son Ford is re­ported to be close to sign­ing on for the of­fi­cial sev­enth episode. “Har­ri­son Ford will reprise his role as Han Solo in the up­com­ing Star Wars movies. The deal is done. It’s huge,” the story says. The source? Um­berto “El May­imbe” Gon­za­lez of Fox News Latino.

Don’t snig­ger. He’s knows as much as you or me (un­less you’re Har­ri­son Ford).
