ACTING! The Force Awakens Team Was Very Impressed by Harrison Ford
He knows, already.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan were endearingly unchill about what it meant to them to work with Harrison Ford on the new film and to witness his *straightens monocle* process.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy described watching Ford step back into the Millennium Falcon for the first time:
The minute Harrison and Chewie walked on board the Millennium Falcon — that was incredible. “Every single person on the set was stunned. I remember turning around, and there must have been 200 people gathered behind me — completely quiet. I didn’t even know they were there. The whole crew had stopped working, staring at the monitor, because it was so iconic.
[…] And then, you know, Harrison — and I’ve always found this over the years with the Indiana Jones films we’ve all done together — he’s incredibly collaborative when it comes to story and developing his character, and really engaged in the process. And he was every bit that on this film.
Life goals: to one day be able to casually pepper references to my work on Indiana Jones into conversation.
Force Awakens co-screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan added,
It was sort of surreal for everybody, and it wasn’t just Han, it wasn’t just Harrison. It was seeing all this stuff. The Millennium Falcon has been a big part of my life, from Empire to Jedi to Force Awakens — and now I’ve written a movie about the young Han. So the Falcon has enormous resonance for me. And I don’t know if you can imagine what it would be like to watch things being shot on that set with those people.
Great, kid. Don’t get cocky.
