Harrison Ford returning to Star Wars

Fox News Latino columnist Umberto Gonzalez reported the news, saying that he "triple checked" his "legitimate sources" for the information. 

Other cast members from the original Star Wars trilogy have also reportedly signed on for the new films, including Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

Disney purchased the franchise from Lucasfilm late last year for over $4 billion and announced three additional films for the series, set after the original trilogy.

Episode VII is currently set for release in 2015. It is not known how large a part Ford will play in the new film.
