Ford (who is looking great following his plane crash earlier this year) had this to say about returning to the galaxy that George Lucas created:

“It should have felt ridiculous. It was 30 plus years ago, and I sort of grew up. Yet here I was. I will tell you that it felt great.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18, 2015.
