Sorry guys, Han is going to be killed off in 7. Not only does every rumor and spoiler of the film show this but...it makes sense.

Let's look at the reasoning for this.

1. A main character dies in the first film of each Star Wars trilogy (Obi-Wan in Episode IV, Qui-Gon in Episode I).

2. Han Solo has been confirmed as a MAIN character in the force awakens. Kathleen Kennedy confirmed this. Why would they make Han a lead character over Leia and Luke? Well...to make his death a little more impactful that's why.

3. Episode 8 has started pre-production but most of its filming will actually conflict with Blade Runner 2.

Look, Han Solo is my favorite Star Wars character of all time but I think it's very obvious his character will be the one to go in 7.

If Han was the one to be killed off I think Disney + Lucasfilm would have shutdown Making Star Wars by now. When they were contacted by a lawyer hired by Disney to investigate who was leaking what MSW said they had no production source just random anonymous emails which could not be fact checked. That is why they have been allowed to spread misinformation most of what they post is pure fantasy but written in a style to generate click bait

So if you want to believe MSW then Han Solo the biggest SW global box office star will not survive EP7

And the Han Solo standalone movie is also going to have flashbacks with Harrison

Star Wars isn't reliant on stars, though. That's certainly not how the originals made their box office.

It's a brand. Having actors around from the original trilogy - and, yes, perhaps especially Ford, whose career has been more public than either Hamill's or Fisher's - gives this new trilogy an imprimatur of confidence. So does having some of the moment buzzy favorites like Nyong'o, Isaac, and Driver, along with a couple of near unknowns in, apparently, lead roles. But I doubt they're seen as the primary draw.

I think Disney would easily allow Han Solo to be killed off in the expectation that kids are going to be more into the new characters anyway. I assume it wouldn't affect the buying habits of the superfans enough for that to be a determining factor.

Exactly. As soon as they announced Han/Luke/Leia would be returning that should have let everyone know that they were going to die. It's just a matter of when and where. My guess is Han in 7 and Luke in 9 (Leia might continue to the next trilogy since she's the youngest).

But seriously if you don't think the returning characters are going to die, you are in for a serious surprise...

Lucas killed Vader, Maul, Kenobi, and Yoda...it doesn't matter to consumers.

Yep...plus in case you have forgotten...

These characters are dead. Star Wars happened a LONG time ago. Han has been dead for a long long time. It's just that now, we get to see what happened!

You can also add
4. Lawrence Kasdan is the co-writer for The Force Awakens, who wanted to kill Han back in Return of the Jedi. It'll be harder to keep him alive longer with all the younger faces front and center.

Which means it'll give Ford an open enough schedule for Indy 5*.

*sorry, but didn't want to derail this discussion for too much more Star Wars talk

I think we will see how Han dies in TFA and in a future anthology film Han will be back as young Han Solo played by another actor. So Han will not die in the sense of "dead" as "end of the character", but this is how life is.
And YES this is in my opinion the bigger advantage regarding Indy 5 with Harrison Ford!

I'm not sure what Han's fate will be in Episode VII; however, I highly doubt Harrison will spend as much time on set in future installments than this one, that's for sure.

Attending a memorial for Melissa Mathison, most likely? Mother of his children? Spielberg in attendance? Paparazzi locked out?

This is why he's a hero of mine

I find Harrison Ford very inspiring these days, in some ways more than ever, along with Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, William Shatner, these are men in their 70's and 80's who don't appear to have lost their energy and enthusiasm...indeed Harrison seems to have more than he did a few years ago...
It's reassuring. Harrison and the others mentioned above demonstrate that the second half of your life can...and should... be just as fun packed as the first half, and doesn't have to be a dreary decline. As I begin the slippery slope toward 50, fully aware that I'm probably already past the halfway mark of my own life, it's something I feel very strongly about;
"Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."
Absolutely.
Never give up. Never surrender.
And regardless of whether he does one more Indy, Harrison Ford is one of my heroes, more so now than ever.

Han 1977 and 2015 still can kick butt.
