UPDATE: Harrison Ford playing Han Solo in Episode VII

The scruffy-looking nerf herder is coming back

[UPDATE: A source with Geoff Boucher (formerly of the LA Times, now with Entertainment Weekly) says that the Harrison Ford has not yet signed and may not for a while. Bocher tweeted: "Harrison Ford deal? My source says not yet. 'It will not be for weeks and perhaps months.'"]

According to sources with Latino Review, Harrison Ford is set to return as Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII. Disney has yet to comment on this Latino Review scoop, but Latino Review is confident that this is basically a done deal.

It's unclear if Han Solo will have a prominent role in the film or if it will just be a cameo appearance by Ford. This may set the stage for other former Star Wars actors like Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher to return as well.

Expect some follow-ups on this story in the coming weeks.
