Return of the Jedi asked to kill his character and was about to get it

He proposed the idea to George Lucas, but he was never convinced

The Star Wars cinematic universe is full of curiosities of all kinds, especially the ideas that were raised during the making of the various films and which were ultimately not realized. So we told you a few days ago that Obi-Wan Kenobi was initially going to live in Episode IV, but in the end it was decided that he would die. Rather, there a character with exactly the opposite happening.

The main trio of protagonists in the original trilogy left us with unforgettable characters due to their different interpretations, which ensures that we continue to remember them several decades after the release of these films. Undoubtedly one of them is Han Solo, who appears in these three installments, although that is not what Harrison Ford wanted to happen.

The actor was very clear that he had to perform an act of sacrifice because that will increase the tension and the desire of the audience to see the film more, because they will have fear and curiosity to know what fate awaits the other characters, if there are any they are the next in line of risk. Same luck.

The truth is that the possibility was given to him on a plate, because in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back we must not forget that one of the most iconic moments is when Han Solo becomes carbonite. So he wants that to be the final point for his character, because beyond that his fate is left up in the air at the end of this film without knowing what will happen to him.

Another reason for this is that Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher signed a contract to participate in three films, while Harrison Ford only signed on for the first two. So when pre-production on Return of the Jedi began, he met with George Lucas and Lawrence Kasdan to voice his request while they were writing the script. The last of them was very much in favor of the idea, but Lucas was never convinced because he wanted a very good ending for all the characters. It was clear who got away with it.

Maybe that time Harrison Ford didn’t get his wish, but it did come true. Of course, he had to wait 32 years until that moment came, because in Episode VII: The Force Awakens it was Han Solo’s own son, Ben Solo, better known as Kylo Ren, who ended his life. this death is one of the most gruesome and shocking in the entire franchise.
