Harrison Ford debuts behind-the-scenes footage, talks future of Han Solo on Kimmel

Or, rather, talked about it as much as he could

Harrison Ford returned to Jimmy Kimmel's late night program on Monday to talk about finally getting his Han Solo wish in, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The actor, who was promoting the DVD and Blu-ray release of the film, was asked about Solo's role in the movie and whether he was happy with where the story took him.

Ford said that he had been campaigning for 30 years to have Solo killed, stating in previous interviews that it seemed like the only way to close his character's chapter, and was happy they finally listened to him.

"You work for, like, 25 years for the company," Ford told Kimmel. "You do your best, you show up everyday, you do your job. And then they just let you go."

When asked if he or Han Solo were going to be in any of the other movies, appearing as an apparition or through a flashback, Ford wouldn't answer.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is available on DVD and Blu-ray April 5, but those looking to watch it earlier can download it on iTunes as of April 1.
