Major Star Wars: The Force Awakens possible spoiler details ahead! If you hate spoilers and would rather find out when the movie comes out on December, don't read further. Although not officially confirmed, these details might end up being true.
A source from the set for a popular TV series reached out to us, and said that he spoke to a fellow supporting actor who claimed that he was involved in Star Wars: The Force Awakens for a week or two. He shared some bad news about one of the major characters of the movie. Here's the info the actor shared to Epicstream.com:
"He watched a scene being shot at Greenham common airbase in which Leia is sad and says 'I don't know how he will cope without him', my source told me Han Solo dies, I quizzed him and he said he just presumed, I then asked who was she talking to, he said a couple of Wookiees but now Chewy, I asked him could you have meant that Chewy dies, he said that might of been the case, he didn't know just that one of them does.'
So there you have it. Han Solo or Chewbacca might die in The Force Awakens, but take this as a grain of salt for now. I won't be surprised, however, if this ended up being true. Han Solo's death was originally put forward by Harrison Ford for Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. In an interview with EW back in 2012, Ford said that Han didn't have anywhere else to go as a character and that his death would up the stakes of the final battle, but George Lucas decided against it. Ford joked it was because Lucas didn't see a future in "dead Han toys". But now that the smuggler is older in The Force Awakens and Lucas is no longer in charge of the story's direction, this sad fate could might actually happen in the movie.
So do you think Han Solo, Chewbacca, or some other character will die in The Force Awakens? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
