Star Wars Force Awakens: Harrison Ford wants to play Rey

Why? Because she’s ‘awesome… and cute’

Posted on


Harrison Ford is Han Solo, but what if he were someone else?

That’s the question EW posed to Ford and other members of the Star Wars cast and crew at the world premiere of The Force Awakens on Monday. Who would Ford want to play if not the scruffy looking nerf herder?

“I’d like to be Daisy Ridley’s character in the new one,” Ford said of Ridley’s Rey, a scavenger from the planet Jakku. His reason? “Awesome… and cute.”

Watch above to see who (or what) Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Frank Oz, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, producer Simon Kinberg, and more would play. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out on Friday.
