Recently, we reported on the flood of news being made by Disney and Lucasfilm regarding the next installment in the "Star Wars" franchise. For the time being, the movie is being referred to as "Episode 7," but its lack of an official title has not stopped fans from thirsting for new information about the future of the "Star Wars" universe.

According to the "Parallel Universe" blog, published by MSN Entertainment, Harrison Ford is close to finalizing a deal to reprise his role as Han Solo in "Episode 7." The article cites another blog that has been accurate with rumors in the past, as suggesting "apparently Ford, director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Michael Arndt and LucasFilm head Kathleen Kennedy have all agreed that Solo will return." At this point, Ford's agreement to return to the series is all speculation but, if true, perhaps Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia, won't be far behind.
