Ah, Harrison Ford. Don't let anyone change you.
The septuagenerian took part in a recent Twitter Q&A which saw
Solo Ford take questions from the lion's mouth that is Star Wars fans. During the painfully rehearsed session, he was asked what was his favourite scene from the upcoming film.
Ford, who has seen the film and said that he loved it (that's a lot coming from him), replied that it was a sword fight sequence between Adam Driver, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. Most of the trailers we've seen so far show Driver's character drawing his broadsword lightsaber against Boyega, however Ridley hasn't featured in any of them.

This basically opens up the possibility that Rey, Ridley's character, is also a potential Force user which may also possibly confirm a long-held rumour about her.
That rumour? That's she related either to Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia. Who's now called General Leia. Which is amazing.
Look, all will be revealed pretty soon, but it's interesting to see the cracks beginning to form in Lucasfilm's secrecy shield. It might have been a simple gaffe by Ford, but it's unlikely.
Most likely, he was told to drop that little tidbit of information to get nerds like us talking about the whole thing and speculating.
