Towards the end of the summer we learned about the upcoming release of a new book from publisher Insight Editions titled Star Wars Icons: Han Solo that would be giving readers all they could ever want on the history and development of the iconic smuggler/scoundrel from that galaxy far, far away. Right after the book was announced, StarWars.com posted an interview they conducted with it’s author, Gina McIntyre, along with a high resolution image of the final artwork that had been selected for the cover.

Entertainment Weekly has posted an exclusive excerpt from Star Wars Icons: Han Solo that features Harrison Ford recalling new details during his time filming the Hoth scenes in Finse, Norway for the production of The Empire Strikes Back.

Below is an excerpt from the chapter “Scruffy Looking Nerf Herder” which covers the filming of The Empire Strikes Back. In it, Ford shares the untold story of his ill-fated journey to Finse, Norway to film the Hoth scenes.

Star Wars Icons: Han Solo is available for purchase exclusively from Sideshow Collectibles for the price of $40. Click here to place your order for the 240-page hardcover that has an expected arrival time frame of the end of this year.
