Han Solo will be back! (Probably.)

A "Star Wars" reunion featuring Luke, Leia, and Solo is looking increasingly likely for J.J. Abrams's "Episode VII." At least, that's what Harrison Ford told local Chicago news station WGN yesterday. While attending an event for Conservation International, he nearly confirmed a"Star Wars" reunion with Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher in J.J. Abrams' "Episode VII."

"I think it's almost true. I'm looking forward to it," he said. "It's not in the bag yet, but I think it's happening."

Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher have already indicated they are on board to reprise their roles in the sequel. George Lucas confirmed the two had signed deals (or were close to), but Ford was the missing final piece. But now it seems the 70-year-old actor - who's previously had mixed feelings about the franchise - is ready to join his co-stars. Watch the interview below:
