Harrison Ford Does’t Give “Rat’s Ass” If Some One Else Plays Han Solo

Harrison Ford can be brutally honest when asked about his time in the Star Wars universe. The actor made no secret of how he hated the franchise and had repeatedly admitted that he wanted Han Solo’s death to happen in Return of the Jedi.

Because of this, it came as a huge surprise to many when he reprised his role as Hans Solo in 2015’s The Force Awakens. In response to this, he says he was there to die after all and didn’t “give a rat’s ass” about who would take up the Star Wars mantle after him.

After a brief run of being civil and polite, Ford went back to being dismissive in a recent interview when asked about passing the “baton” to John Boyega. Ford He had this to say.

“I don’t know that I thought of it that way at all. I was there to die. And I didn’t give a rat’s ass who got my sword.”

Harrison Ford’s has always ricocheted between being cordial and depreciative regarding the Star Wars saga, which is something that is not seen when talking about his Indiana Jones roles. However, the negativity surrounding Star Wars has recently increased two-fold since Return of the Jedi, and no one knows why.

It’s not that he hates Star Wars, but he does not hold the saga in such high esteem as he does his other roles. You would have to credit Ford for putting his heart and soul into making the character of Hans Solo his own. The actor was famous for rewriting the dialogues in the film to suit his style. He is quoted telling Lucas about his dialogue, saying, “George, you can type this sh!t, but you sure as hell can’t say it.”

Even though Harrison Ford may say he couldn’t care less what happens next in the saga, there probably is a bit of him who does care more than he is willing to admit. This is evidenced by taking Alden Ehrenreich out to lunch to give him advice about playing the young Hans Solo in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, which proves that he does care albeit a little bit.
