It doesn't matter what movie Harrison Ford is promoting—the interviewers always bring the conversation around to Star Wars, hitting him with questions that he answers reluctantly. And we don't usually hear anything new anyway. But in a recent interview, Ford revealed that if he'd had his way, the character that made him famous ... would have been killed.

Speaking with ABC News about his new movie Morning Glory, Ford was asked why there were no new Star Wars films featuring Han Solo, and he explained that not only was there no reason for the character to return, but also:

"As a character he was not so interesting to me. I thought he should have died in the last one, just to give it some bottom. George [Lucas] didn't think there was any future in dead Han toys."

Check out the clip below.

What do you think? Who was right—Lucas or Ford?

Would it have made dramatic sense for Han Solo to have been killed at the end of Return of the Jedi?
