SAN DIEGO (AP) — It’s been decades since Harrison Ford played towering film characters Indiana Jones and Han Solo, but the questions still come — especially at Comic-Con.

Ford made his second appearance at the all-things-geek gathering in San Diego Thursday to promote his new film “Ender’s Game.” It might as well have been the 1980s, though, as far as fans were concerned. Given the chance to ask questions about the new film, they instead peppered the 71-year-old star with questions about characters he long ago left behind.

One fan asked, “light sabers aside,” what might happen if Solo, the Millenium Falcon pilot from “Star Wars,” met Jones, the adventure-addicted archaeologist.

“Hi, how are you?” Ford asked before shaking his head, taking off his glasses and rubbing his eyes in a marvelous moment of comedic timing.
