If you’ve been reading the site for a while you know how much I hate interviewers who ask questions about a different movie than the one they’re meant to. However, I’m okay with it as long as they do it to Harrison Ford. Why? Because he’s inevitably going to get asked about Star Wars no matter what he’s doing, and he’s always got a smartass comeback. Indy simply does not give a shit about your fandom.
Case in point, USA Today interviewed Ford about Disney’s The Call of the Wild, and the idiot interviewer decided now was a good time to ask him about his return in The Rise of Skywalker, and whether Han Solo was just a memory or a Force Ghost. Aren’t we done talking about that disappointing movie yet? And why bring it up now? Ugh. Anyway, Ford gives exactly the response we expect from an old curmudgeon like him…
“A Force ghost? I don’t know what a Force ghost is,” Ford said. “Don’t tell anyone. I’m not talking loud enough for your recorder. I have no (expletive) idea what a Force ghost is. And I don’t care!”
Don’t we know after all of these years that Ford does not give two shits about the geeky little details Star Wars fans obsess over? What’s more, he doesn’t care that you know he doesn’t care. It’s beautiful.
The Call of the Wild opens on February 21st.
