Harrison Ford, who played Han Solo in the first three Star Wars films, recently answered some questions in a Q&A session on Twitter.
When asked by a Twitter user what his favorite action scene of the upcoming film is, Ford said that he loves a particular scene where two main characters engage in a duel.
“The sword fight with Rey and Kilo Ren. Fantastic visual storytelling. – Harrison Ford #TwitterAwakens”

This just confirms that there will be a light saber duel between main protagonist Rey, to be played by Daisy Ridley (The Inbetweeners 2), and Kylo Ren, who will be played by Adam Driver (This is Where I Leave You). However, it seems like the “reveal” may not be too surprising at all, considering that people are already assuming Rey will become a Jedi during the film’s climax. And because Kylo Ren wants to destroy the Resistance as well as the last Jedi, it is just fitting that they engage in battle.
In addition, the film’s Twitter team also chose not to delete Ford’s answer, which could mean that it may not be that important of a scene after all.
Aside from Ford, other stars also took part in the Q&A, which was hosted by the film’s Twitter team. Some of the actors who also responded to questions from Star Wars fans include Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will be the seventh film in the Star Wars franchise, but only the first after Lucasfilm was acquired by The Walt Disney Company in 2012.
The movie is set about 30 years after the events of the Return of the Jedi, where the Rebel Alliance and the Empire are now referred to as the Resistance and the First Order, respectively.
