Harrison Ford thinks 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' is "incredible".

The Hollywood legend has reprised the role of Han Solo for the JJ Abrams-directed movie and while he's remained tight-lipped about the plot, he's reassured fans it'll do justice to the earlier movies.

He told 'The Jimmy Kimmel Show': "Why would you want to say anything [about it]? I want the audience to experience it. I don't want them to hear about it.

"I can tell you this - it's really, really good. Trust me, it's really good. The new cast... Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac are phenomenal.

"JJ has made an incredible movie. You will not be disappointed at all. I promise you."

Meanwhile, Harrison's on-screen co-star John Boyega confessed recently that he cried when he first read the script for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'.

The British actor, who plays the role of Finn in the new movie, said: "When I read the script I cried, and I'm not really a big crier ... I'm more like a frog-in-the-throat kind of guy, who'll try to hold it in and make sure I don't let it all out."

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he?
