Han served as a mentor determine to new characters like John Boyega’s Finn, who stated that it felt bizarre being part of a Star Wars film with out Ford.

Positively. I imply, it is a completely different change once you’re coming onto the subsequent film and Harrison Ford shouldn’t be there. Han Solo shouldn’t be there. It is the fact of Han Solo’s loss of life on this, it is simply mad. However at any time when I can see him, it is nice occasions.

Showing because the visitor on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Boyega stated the expertise of filming a Star Wars film with out Ford felt completely different. In response to Boyega, it made the fact of his Han Solo’s loss of life sink in for him. However, hey, at the least he is nonetheless acquired Luke Skywalker in there, proper?
Whereas speaking with Jimmy Fallon, John Boyega did give a enjoyable anecdote about how he was a big fanboy when he first met Harrison Ford. Whereas everybody else was being very respectful, in Boyega’s personal phrases he was extra like “can I’ve a hug please?” He apparently even had Ford autograph some Indiana Jones dolls (um, they’re known as motion figures).
One would think about that Harrison Ford’s absence was felt by a number of others on set as nicely. Mark Hamill, who reprises his iconic Luke Skywalker for a significant half, stated that he didn’t want to sign on for extra Star Wars films till he heard Ford was onboard. Whereas Han Solo will likely be missed by followers, The Final Jedi nonetheless has lots to supply. The previous few trailers have been extremely nicely acquired, and Lucasfilm and Disney have been trumpeting the work of writer-director Rian Johnson on the sequel.
