A reported leak from the script of ‘Star Wars’ has indicated the death of a major character that will leave fans stunned.
SPOILER ALERT BENEATH THIS PHOTO - READ NO FURTHER IF YOU DON'T WISH TO DISCOVER WHO!!!
Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill were the stars of the original trilogy
The blog claims it has received the news from an extra on the set, with additional details that Han Solo is killed by the film’s villain Kylo Wren, payed by 'Girls' star Adam Driver, in a location called ‘The Evil Castle’.
In addition, the blog claims that we will get to meet Han Solo’s daughter, rumored to be played by Daisy Ridley.
If true, this would present an extra twist for fans of the film, familiar with the story that Harrison Ford begged to be killed off during the making of the original series.
However, because George Lucas wanted him to feature heavily in a love story with Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia, the actor had to settle for being imprisoned in a carbonite block and sent off to Jabba The Hutt's palace for a while.
'The Empire Strikes Back' found Han Solo sent off to Mars, but he was later reunited with Princess Leia
There has been extremely scarce leakage from the set of ‘Star Wars’ so this is a biggie for fans ahead of the film’s worldwide release at Christmas. We’ve already been treated to a picture of the Millennium Falcon, though, and the news that filming had to be arranged around Harrison Ford’s recovery from an accident when the spaceship door fell on his ankle - a daily hazard most of us can avoid.
The stars seem confident, however, that, despite the secrecy, fans will be delighted when they finally get their hands on the film.
Oscar Isaac recently told HuffPostUK: “The sets are everything you can imagine, there are the returning characters, but people will also be astonished by the care and love that JJ has paid to this project. That’s what I can’t wait for them to spot.”
'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' will be in UK cinemas from Boxing Day. Watch the teaser trailer below...
