Han Solo, Harrison Ford, is back and onboard for Episode Seven, but that’s not all. As part of the deal, steps have been made which raise the possibility of Ford donning the famed Fedora hat of Indiana Jones once more.
A verbal agreement with Ford to play Han Solo once more has been in principle place since before the Disney deal. Over the course of this summer financial settlements were reached. The outstanding points that had dragged on but are now resolved are:
Ford wanted to see the synopsis for his character’s development over more than just Episode 7. He saw this in August and is happy with the story arc.
Ford wanted a commitment to Indy 5. He did not get this as there is no plot line or script in place. What did happen was an agreement was made wherein an outline would be developed by the end of calendar year 2014, and if all parties can agree to it moving forward, efforts would be made to move on Indy 5 for release before the end of 2016.
Disney wanted a multi film deal with Ford which transcends Episode 7. This has now been agreed.
But do remember, it’s only a rumour!

There are two production designers on Episode VII, Rick Carter and Darren Gilford. This is highly unusual and a sign that they are moving swiftly towards production and want a fast set-up. That could mean that they’ll be designing and building on location and on the soundstages at the same time, thereby speeding up production.
The film WILL be released in 2015, the Disney CEO has publicly stated that. If Disney opted to release the film in 2016 then they would be required to advise the stock market at the time of decision as that would impact on accounts by material value. They haven’t confirmed the specific release date at this point but I understand that 11/11/15 is still the target.
