Think about it. these aren't really the characters or the objects from the movies. They are tributes to the movie, used to extend our current knowledge of futuristic sci-fi and identify us with the movie better. They are just objects. :-)

All he's saying is that you can see the cars, not Harrison Ford in them.

In the DVD audio commentary they mention there are spinners in that scene. They said they put the spinners in there because, in Blade Runner they used Mellenium Falcon as a sky scraper.

*sigh* Won't you get the picture? They just put it in there as a tribute. Its not like it drove all the way form the Blade runner galaxy. It doesn't have to fit in weith the story of the other movie. They just put it there. They can do whatever they want: It's their movie!

Deckard was in the first seat of the car and was driven by an auto-pilot!

HELLO!! didn't you see the END of the barbara walters interview? Harrison Ford said he would never do another star wars film...but he DID say he would drive a spinner from the blade runner galaxy to the star wars one and park hover in the air for a while and if they just happened to be filming the Phantom Menace while he was doing it...well so be it! Lil Bro.....i think you need some brain food.

Can somebody help me with this guy? What is his problem? Or does he also have problem with the space pod from 2001 which is in the film because Hal9000 can not be in this film because they left it in orbit of Jupiter! It are just spinners! I am not saying Harrison Ford is in one of the Spinners or that you see him driving a Spinner! By the way Decard (the name of the caracter in blade Runner) is always driven in Bladerunner. I don't recall him driving himself!

Surely thats right... if HAL9000 wasn't there then how could the pod be there as well..... come on think about it... and I thought Star Wars was set a long time ago ...... as well so that would be before 2001 cos its only 2000 now.....

I'm writing to the idiot that wrote at the start of this page. I'm going to tell you a secret, "Star Wars" isn't real. Sorry to break it to you, but you know all those ships flying in space in the movie. No one is really flying them. They are CG renderings by ILM, they don't really need Harrison Fords permission to have a ship in Episode I.

Hello? Did we miss the Barbara Walters interview? Harrison Ford said flat-out "no" to future Star Wars. . .umm, since Ford stars in Blade Runner, HE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN THERE!
