COMIC-CON 2013: Harrison Ford Knows J.J. Abrams Can Handle 'Star Wars'

The actor opens up about the director taking on the project, revealing that he is very happy with the direction things are going.

Talking to MTV, Harrison Ford claims that he is still not involved with Star Wars: Episode VII and that he won't be returning as Han Solo, even though he is. Basically, he can't talk about it until an announcement is made (probably at Disney's D23 Expo later this year).

When asked if it would be difficult to return to the character, Harrison Ford had this to say,

"Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me? I'm not ready at this time to have an in-depth conversation about...What did you call it again? Star Wars? No, can't talk about it."

Harrison Ford did, however, open up about his fondness for Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams, expressing his faith in the man to take over such a daunting franchise.

"I think he's a great story teller. He's developed an enormous filmmaking skill. I think it's a daunting project, and he's the type of guy that can take on huge challenges and live with it. He is an awfully nice guy. Wonderful guy. Very happy he is involved with the movie. Even if I'm not."

Star Wars: Episode VII comes to theaters December 18th, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

    Poor Harrison Ford keeps getting asked the same question that everyone knows the answer to but he can't talk about it because he's been told not to.
