Harrison Ford’s dislike of Star Wars is almost as famous as the character he portrays and it’s clear that questions about the big space franchise grinds his gears whenever they come up. However, that hasn’t stopped people from asking anyway even when he’s promoting other films, much to his chagrin.
Speaking of Star Wars, the GOAT team talk about all things Baby Yoda on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:
During the press tour for The Call Of The Wild, a movie that’s not set in space or revolve around wars between stars, interviewers couldn’t help but bombard poor Harrison Ford with questions about Star Wars and “Force Ghosts”. Unsurprisingly, he responded with about as much enthusiasm as a dental patient.
“A Force ghost? I don’t know what a Force ghost.
“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!”
Hey, if I were Harrison Ford, I would be sick of all the Star Wars questions too after being asked about the damn franchise by over-zealous fans for over 40 years, especially when all I want to do is promote The Call Of The Wild (aka the film I’m in right now).
But this sort of antagonistic approach towards Star Wars questions may have backfired on Ford as he’s made his “IDGAF about the big space movie” attitude something of a schtick and everyone is sort of expecting a grumpy answer at this point.
It’s gotten to the point where Star Wars fans ask Harrison Ford questions about the franchise just to have him tell them to eff off. It’s actually supremely entertaining to be honest and his “I’m so done” attitude is parsecs better than any serious answer to whatever fan debate or Han Solo query people may have.
So the moral of the story here is that Harrison Ford doesn’t care about you or your questions, but he really doesn’t care if those questions are about Star Wars so stop asking him (even though we all know people won’t).
