As everyone on the planet knows, breaking box office records around the world is director J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unlike most movies where everyone knows all the twists and turns before opening day, Disney and Lucasfilm have done an amazing job keeping the secrets of The Force Awakens under wraps. It’s actually a small miracle they did it considering the speed at which things leak on the internet.
Knowing the cast was extremely guarded with what they would say about their characters and the film, when I attended the Los Angeles press day, I decided to have fun during my TV interviews. As you’ll see during my interview with Harrison Ford we talked about his best day on set, whether BB-8 is a boy or a girl, his personal ranking of the Star Wars movies, if Han or Greedo shot first, what color lightsaber would he have if he was a Jedi, and what it means to play Han Solo again.
- When did he realize his presence in a new Star Wars movie meant so much to so many people?
- Is BB-8 a boy or a girl?
- Who shot first: Han or Greedo?
- If he was a Jedi what color lightsaber would he have?
- What’s his rank of the Star Wars movies?
- Can he do impressions? Can he do Chewbacca, Jabba and J.J. Abrams?
- What was his best and worst day on set?
- Would he like to revisit any of his previous characters the way he’s played Indiana Jones and Han Solo?
