Harrison Ford; 'Han Solo is more emotionally complex'

Harrison Ford thinks Han Solo is more "emotionally complex" in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'.

The 73-year-old actor reprises his role as captain of the Millennium Falcon in the new movie and revealed that Han is no longer simply the wise-cracking smuggler from the original movies.

He said: "I thought it was a great idea and I wanted to know a little bit more about Han Solo 30 years later. He was always the wise guy, but has he gotten wiser, less wise, more wise? I think he's got a more complex story now. A little bit more of an emotional context than perhaps there was before. But he's still - he's still the same guy.

However, he refused to give any information on the status of Han's relationship with Princess Leia.

When asked on 'Good Morning America', "What's his relationship status? Can you tell us that? If he had a Facebook account what would it say? Married, single, status," Harrison answered: "No, I can't go that far."

Harrison also revealed he has already seen the eagerly-anticipated movie and was impressed with director JJ Abrams' work.

He said: "It was great. It's a wonderful movie, it's got great production values. It's a real big movie and I was delighted to see it."

Harrison - who revealed during the interview that he would love to reprise his role as Indiana Jones for a fifth movie in the franchise - also admitted he is "surprised" at the enduring popularity of 'Star Wars'.

He said: "I'm surprised and obviously delighted. The genius of these films, the luck of these films is that they've been passed on from generation to generation. Many generations of these films have been introduced to them by their parents, and so it's a family experience and it's really kept them alive."
