Han Solo death plot

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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’.”
