During Comic Con, Harrison Ford found the time to talk briefly to Zap2It about why the book and consequently the movie was (still) relevant today. Ford commented on general social as well as political issues in the book that speak to a contemporary audience. Here is what he said:
[Y]oung people are very curious about the future and their place in the world and how they’re going to fit in and their utility to their culture, and they’re very suspicious of the older generations and the uses to which they’re going to be put, and curious about their future and anxious about their future. This movie deals with all of those issues and more.
I think [the book] was prescient in recognizing [drone warfare] as a potential issue in the future because of what was written 25 years or so ago. I don’t think it’s a metaphor.
Ford goes on to talk about special effects and some of his iconic roles. Read the rest HERE!
