Star Wars film rumors are flying hard lately, ranging from the now-confirmed reports that J.J. Abrams will be directing Episode VII to the refuted claim that Zack Snyder would be helming a film. The latest, if true, is big: according to Latino Review, Harrison Ford will "officially" return to play Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars movie. Latino Review isn't a huge name in media, but they've broken major news before: among other things, they published a credible review of a planned Halo script and revealed that Loki would play the main antagonist in The Avengers.

El Mayimbe of Latino Review implies this isn't a tentative decision: "His deal is done, it's just a formality right now, they haven't really announced it yet," he told Fox News Latino. We'd take this news as cautiously as any other rumor — the sequels are still at an early stage, and lots of ideas are likely being considered, even assuming this is true. If it is, we're still not sure how big his part would be, or whether he'll finally lay to rest who shot first in the Mos Eisley Cantina.
