LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Veteran actor Harrison Ford could reprise his role as Han Solo in Star Wars in a new movie set for release in 2015 after Disney bought the studio behind the sci-fi saga, a report said.

The 70-year-old has previously appeared cool on the character he played in the first three Star Wars movies. But he has not ruled out returning for what will be the seventh movie in the series, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he's upbeat about it, all three of them are," a "highly-placed" source told the magazine, referring to Ford and fellow actors Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

Ford found fame in the first Star Wars movie in 1977, and played his part again in the second and third installments, which made up the initial trilogy.
