It seems that veteran of the Star Wars sci-fi saga, Harrison Ford, will reprise his role as Han Solo in the Disney+ series The Book of Boba Fett. According to The Sun, Ford was on the set of the show for several days while in London filming Indiana Jones 5. It is believed that the actor will be digitally rejuvenated to make his appearance more in line with the era of the original trilogy.
Ford made his debut in Star Wars (1977) as the pilot of the Millennium Falcon vessel, the bona fide villain Han Solo. In the movie, the character joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic, which later put him in bad situations and it wasn’t until Return of the Jedi (1983) that Han was able to free himself from them. Also in this third film, he met the bounty hunter Boba Fett and inadvertently ended up in the Sarlacc pit.

After Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm, Star Wars stories are no longer canon and in the ancient expanded universe, Boba Fett and Han Solo met several times. In fact, the two even put aside their differences and became very close friends.
There’s a good chance that in The Book of Boba Fett, Han Solo will follow in the footsteps of The Mandalorian – which brought Luke Skywalker back to the days of Return of the Jedi at the season two finale.
The Book of Boba Fett centers on two Star Wars characters Boba Fett and Fennec Shand, who are now taking control of the late Jabba the Hutt’s criminal enterprise on Tatooine.

At the moment the series only has one season, but executive producer Robert Rodriguez doesn’t rule out the possibility of the second in the near future.
“If people really love it, I’m sure they’d want to make more,” he said in a recent interview.
The Book of Boba Fett is currently available for streaming on Disney+.
