    Sooooo.......Han didn't die then? If so that will probably be the biggest plot twist in Star Wars' history since "I am your father" in ESB...

    If Harrison Ford is returning....I hope it's a flashback cause it wouldn't make sense that he survives a lightsaber stabbed through the chest, a giant fall, and the planet exploding...

    I don't think Harrison Ford will be in it at all. I think Kennedy's comments were just so that she didn't reveal any spoilers. It would have been odd had she said "Everyone apart from Harrison". I think the "all of them" just refers to all the surviving members of the cast.

    Nods only way Han solo can return is FLASHBACK or through a force vision. Since he was killed by his son and fell down the pit and the planet BLEW UP!

    He's dead jim.

    And Captain Phasma should be dead too unless she made it out of the trash compactor Han and Finn supposedly put her in.

    i can see why they wanted Han in the story to pull people in, but Ford's performance wasn't that good. better than Leia but still not great, I felt like the best part of the movie was the first segment before he turned up. can't see them shelling out again just to put him in flashbacks.

    I believe TFA hasn't been released in China so she probably wanted to be as vague as possible plus there's still alot of people I know that will be seeing it their first time this weekend.

    Remember not everyone is a crazed fan like we are!:D

    I don't think Han's coming back, but I disagree about Ford's performance. I thoroughly enjoyed watching his scenes, and I was especially surprised with his chemistry with the new characters. I don't think his lack of inclusion in future movies will have anything to do with the quality of his screen time.

    Could not disagree more (at least about the Ford part). My expectations were pretty low, especially after seeing Indy 4, but I think he really hit it out of the park for his age. Wish I could say the same for Leia. That being said one of my favorite scenes in the movie was when Leia got off the ship and C3PO popped up between them. As far as Ford returning...my bet is doubtful, although would not mind it all..especially as a flashback to explain his relationship with KR.

    Ford was payed 25 million dollars for his part ( and has a percentage in the profits) im sure if they make him another offer there will be a few flashbacks. or some hologram message on the falcon ala " if u see this it means im dead and the falcon is now yours"

    I disagree with this on so many levels I can't even put it into words.

    Han was incredible. Must have been a different movie.

    i, for one, don't necessarily yearn for a flashback with Han.

    i think our imagination fills in the blanks here.
    he tells Rey "you see Han Solo as the father you never had. Well, he would have disappointed you."

    I don't want him back as a flashback. I want him to be part of Kylo going progressively insane. Like he starts seeing Han's face in nightmares. Then later he sees his face in people in the crowd and progressively he can't tell reality from his nightmares

    I think it will fall somewhere between the flashback/nightmare theory. Because Max Von Sydow is allegedly returning as well, perhaps the flashback scene involves Han and Lorr San Tekka. My other guess is the force ghosts of Kylo Ren's victims begin to haunt him, (ala Revanite's 'insane nightmare' hopes.)

    My favorite parts of the movie are before Han shows up as well, but disagree that he gave a bad performance. Ford was awesome. However, after watching the film 4 times I don't much care for the rathtar segment. Feels out of place and unneeded.

    Although he said that because he feels that he disappointed his son to what he becomes eventually .

    Fully agree, and most casting sites have specially targeted "ads" for within its own space. Go to Actors Access or LA Casting or Casting Frontier to submit, and, even then, you'll never know if you're submitting to Stad Wars or not .

    I don't think there'll be flashbacks, I believe the whole movie will be a prequel to episode 7. And just as the latter broadly followed the OT - it's title even ingeniously paralleling the titles of all three of those movies - I think episode 8 will broadly follow the PT and will show Ben Solos fall to the dark side, Snokes rise to prominence etc etc
