Our friends at Making Star Wars have caught wind of an interesting rumor about Star Wars Episode VII that comes from Ain't It Cool News. In the midst of an article about Harrison Ford's broken leg, they dropped this little interesting nugget of information:

"Han Solo is pretty much the main character of EPISODE VII, leading a galaxy-wide search party for Luke Skywalker."

Now this is not the first time we've heard that Han Solo/Harrison Ford might have a big role in Episode VII. Out of all the returning cast members from the Original Trilogy, Harrison seems best fit to take the lead in the next film, or at least have a heavy presence alongside new faces like Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac. And if this is indeed true, it begs the question; how will the affect the production of Episode VII? Lucasfilm is still confident that they will meet the December 18th, 2015 release date, so we'll see.

Also, having Luke be a macguffin of sorts that launches our heroes on their adventure does sound interesting. This idea could tie into previous rumors that claim that Luke has been fighting Jedi hunting Sith Inquisitors over the past 30+ years and cannot fight them anymore, which could force him into hiding(perhaps on Tatooine?).

As always, this is merely a rumor and should be taken with a grain of salt.
