    When do you all think that they'll announce who's playing Han? I figured it could be months before filming starts to get people used to the idea. Also, since movies are filmed up to a year in advance of release this could be a spring 2017 production at the latest. That leaves me to think that we'll know who the actor is by late fall next year. Does that sound reasonable to anyone?

    I think they are already looking. The auditions for TFA lasted seven months and they were for multiple roles. New Han Solo must carry the entire film on his shoulders.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the auditions last through the entire 2016. But, it is reasonable that we know by the end of next year.

    The success of the film will ultimately depend on the angle of the story. Will they have multiple-age Solos? Will they reference the EU backstory of the Imperial Academy dropout? Will we see Chewie in slavery? Will there be Casino Rotale-esque Sabaac tension with Lando? Will we see 'Mrs Solo' as in the recent comic run? Too many questions, clear my mind I must.

    I hope soon. I'm pulling for Anthony Ingruber.

    According to MSW they've started casting and if you check out the list of the best known out of the 2,500 actors they're seeing, there's a big age gap between the youngest and oldest, so your multiple age Solos speculation could turn out to be true.
