Han Solo death plot
STAR Wars hero Han Solo should be DEAD, according to original producer Gary Kurtz.
The filmmaker helped bring both the original 1977 sci-fi flick to life and also worked on the sequel, Empire
Strikes Back, before a rift with creator George Lucas. And now Kurtz, 74, says Harrison Ford’s wise-cracking character ( right) was supposed to have CARKED-IT in
Return of the Jedi.
He said: “One of the discussions was about Han Solo’s character being killed in one of the raids.
“But there were discussions with the marketing people and the toy company. They said, ‘Oh, no, you can’t kill off one of your main characters’.”
