In what may come as numbing news for fans, Hollywood legend Harrison Ford hasn't decided whether or not he wants to return for Star Wars: Episode VII, which may be why we haven't heard any confirmed casting announcements just yet.

Yesterday, we learned that LucasFilm is prepping a major Star Wars: Episode VII cast reveal in the form of a teaser trailer rumored to feature the return of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. As we impatiently await the release of that video, Harrison Ford went on BBC One's The Graham Norton Show, where he admitted that we may never see Han Solo again.

"[I have] not quite made the choice..."

However, the actor did reveal that he is quite ready to return as everyone's favorite archaeologist in Indiana Jones 5.

"I would do it in a New York minute, yes. I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart. I'm old enough that we don't need (Sean) Connery any more. I'm old enough to play my own father!"

The actor revealed in August that he was optimistic about getting to play Indy one more time, although we haven't heard anything concrete about the sequel's development for quite some time.

While he is beloved around the world for playing Han Solo, Indiana Jones, and numerous other iconic characters, the actor revealed that his children aren't very impressed by his legendary career.

"Frankly my kids couldn't give a s--t. Actually they've never really cared because they grew up in the sausage factory and it doesn't matter to them."

Harrison Ford will next be seen in Ender's Game next month and in the comedy sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in December.

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.

Indiana Jones 5 is in development .

    "Though his children could care less for his iconic roles." Are Ford's children now deciding if fans get to see that scuffy-looking nerf herder in the Falcon's pilot seat again?! By the way, Movieweb, it's, "Couldn't care less".

    Harrison...bout time you learn...Indiana Jones is DONE!! Give it up after that dreadful last one.

    If he turns down han solo I'm done with him. For reals. Don't these motherf*ckers have agents? like people that tell them smart things to do and dumb things not to?

    @skywise True, but I would rather SEE him passing the torch, rather than have some quick line about one of the most iconic characters in history dying in a Falcon accident between movies, or something.

    He's being coy here, clearly.

    Also, I don't think Harrison Ford has ever learned what the euphamism "Sausage Factory" means.

    So he doesn't want to return to Star Wars, but would rather make another Indy film?

    Hey, another none solid piece of Star Wars speculation, as if Harrison Ford hasn't already been dodging the question. Nothings changed.

    @brady1138 That is very true. In fact, I have seen interviews with him from way back where he felt the Han Solo character was not to his liking.

    I wish he would just suck it up and pass the torch on to a new generation.

    I hope he's in the next Star Wars. I wouldn't mind another Indiana Jones as long as Shia Labaeiouf doesn't come along for the ride.
