"Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he's upbeat about it, all three of them are," an Entertainment Weekly source claimed, referring to the 70-year-old actor, along with his original "Star Wars" co-stars Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

Though just two years ago, the actor wasn't exactly singing the praises of the space-smuggler-turned-rebel hero.

"As a character he was not so interesting to me," the actor told ABC News in 2010 when asked about Han Solo.

Adding, "I thought he should have died in the last one to give it some bottom... George didn't think there was any future in dead Han toys."
