Harrison Ford is the latest original Star Wars alumnus to acknowledge that he will be returning for the new sequels to be filmed and distributed by Disney. But like the other alumni — and George Lucas himself — the actor included a loophole in his remarks. “I think it’s almost true,” he told a TV interviewer in Chicago, where his latest film, 42, about legendary baseball great Jackie Robinson, was receiving its premiere. “I’m looking forward to it. … It’s not in the bag yet, but I think it’s happening and I’m delighted,” he added. The first sequel, to be directed by J.J. Abrams, is expected to premiere in 2015. According to some reports, it will focus on Ford’s character, Han Solo, with Ford serving as a “framing device.”
