Harrison Ford lauds young ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ costars.

FILE – In this July 10, 2015 file photo, Carrie Fisher, from left, Mark Hamill, and Harrison Ford attend Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” panel on day 2 of Comic-Con International in San Diego, Calif. Andrew Porter and Caroline Ritter, who are from Australia, traveled a great distance to sit outside the TCL Chinese Theatre and plan to get married on opening day. The organizers of the camp-out that started this weekend have planned a marathon screening of the franchise in the theater’s courtyard in the order the films were released. The iconic character, who hasn’t been seen on screen since celebrating the fall of the Galactic Empire in 1983′s “Return of the Jedi,” serves as an unlikely mentor to scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley), defector Finn (John Boyega) and pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) as they team up to take on masked adversary Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and his minions.

While the film has been cloaked in an unparalleled level of secrecy, Ford guaranteed that fans can expect the same Solo they fell in love with from the original “Star Wars” trilogy. (Disney declined to screen “Force Awakens” for this story ahead of the Dec. 14 premiere). “The shorthand is that he’s older and wiser, but his bones are the same,” Ford said. “He’s not selling real estate now. While we do not sit down and describe what he’s been doing for those years, we do discover in the context of the story what the complications have been in his life.” Ford, who infamously wanted George Lucas to kill off Solo in “Return of the Jedi,” had a “why not?” attitude about suiting back up as Solo. The studio is planning to release a stand-alone film about a young Solo in 2018. “If you make a huge investment in a product and it pays off, there’s wisdom in seeing whether the well has run dry,” Ford said. “If the well has run dry, (expletive) admit it and go on to something else.

This well has not dried, especially when you introduce new discoveries, which Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver represent.” Despite embodying the intergalactic scoundrel in three films, the “Indiana Jones” star didn’t feel the need to provide “Force Awakens” filmmakers with much insight into Solo, who is back alongside shaggy sidekick Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew). “They wanted to know if I didn’t like something, and we would talk about ways to fix it,” Ford said. “That’s what we do. He has a keen understanding on how the beast works, so I think they produced a script that — in my mind — was very easy to work with.” Once he was back in a galaxy far, far away, Ford’s reprisal was stopped short on the second day of production last year when a door on the Millennium Falcon set outside London fell on him.

The aeronautical aficionado suffered several injuries when his vintage plane’s engine failed and crashed in Santa Monica, Calif. “Oh, (expletive) no, I fly all the time,” said Ford, with his eyes glowing again. “I want to spend more time flying.
