• Star Wars Trivia
The reason George Lucas had Han frozen in
carbonite was because unlike Mark Hamill and
Carrie Fisher who had signed on for three films,
Harrison Ford had only signed on for two. Lucas
wasn't sure if Ford would return for Return of
the Jedi, so he wrote an ending that could either
lead to Han being rescued, or dying in the
carbonite.

    • He should have died in carbonite so we don’t have to deal with the sequels. It’s a small price to pay for salvation

    • Fun Fact: Harrison has wante the character of Han Solo to die since Retunr of the Jedi becuase he didn't want that to be the only role he wanted to be remembered by. Anyways, you just lost The game

    • This is true, but there's more to it. Harrison Ford wanted out since A New Hope, but his contract kept him in until Empire. Then, they convinced him to come back for 6. And 7. And 9. He basically spent the entire time he played Han Solo getting convinced to come back for "one more"
