While some fans may be surprised to hear the news since Ford’s Han Solo died in the 2015 movie The Force Awakens, the events of The Book of Boba Fett take place long before that movie begins. 

The Blade Runner star will be de-aged through the use of computer generated imaging for the part.

It’s a bit shocking Ford decided to come back to the series given his ambivalence toward the Star Wars franchise.

When asked about one particular question related to his cameo in The Rise of Skywalker, released in 2019, and whether or not he was a Force Ghost, Ford responded, ‘I have no f****** idea what a Force ghost is. And I don’t care.’ 

As previously mentioned, the other major project Ford is working on is the fifth Indiana Jones movie. 

He will reprise his role as the title character in that franchise, a role he originated in 1981. Mads Mikkelsen, Antonio Banderas and Phoebe Waller-Bridge will also appear in the movie.
