    Harrison Ford wanted to die as far back as ESB. He pitched strongly for it in ROTJ.

    Sorry-- I always post before I read. I find it's easier to be a know-it-all that way

    Han should have died at the end of ESB. They have no idea what to do with him in ROTJ, so he's running around in the woods tapping troopers on the shoulder while a space battle is waged overhead

    He was supposed to have died in the first act of RotJ. Luke and Leia weren't supposed to be brother and sister. His death would have made the film darker as well as resolve the triangle set up in the first film. Luke was supposed to "fail" as foretold by Yoda in ESB before he left Dagobah. This would have set up the final trilogy that GL promised way back in 1978 when he announced that there would be a follow up trilogy as well as a a trilogy of prequels.

    But GL got sick of SW and decided to just wrap everything up in RotJ. Which is why it sucks so much.

    What a shame it was completely fumble and wasted in Farce Awakens and meant absolute jack.

    I'd take RotJ any day, every day, until time ran out, if it were the only thing left of Star Wars, over another viewing of TFA.

    He also did "jazz hands" seconds later but they edited it out.

    Were there Ewoks in TFA? Nope, didn't think so. I'm fine with it then.
