Perhaps Rian Johnson will include a brief Han flashback, a message that Solo recorded before his death or even the funeral that never happened in The Force Awakens.
On Monday night, Harrison Ford stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" where he talked about Han Solo in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and then next "Indiana Jones" film.
"I can? I'd do that", he said.

Egerton, along with Eddie the Eagle costar Hugh Jackman, was a guest on The Jonathan Ross Show, where the young actor was asked to address the Han Solo casting rumors. Ford's wincing as he passed underneath the door referenced the actor's mishap on the set of Episode VII, when a hydraulic door on the Millennium Falcon set slammed down on him, leaving the 73-year-old with a shattered ankle.

"It seems like everything is going swimmingly and you put in 25-30 years and then they just let you go!" he said.
