According to the "Parallel Universe" blog, published by MSN Entertainment, Harrison Ford is close to finalizing a deal to reprise his role as Han Solo in "Episode 7."

It is rumoured that Ford, director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Michael Arndt and LucasFilm head Kathleen Kennedy have all agreed that Solo will return."

At this point, Ford's agreement to return to the series is all speculation but, if true, perhaps Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia, won't be far behind.
