    So the current speculation is that Disney wants young Han to cameo in Rogue One?


    http://variety.com/2016/film/news/star-wars-han-solo-spinoff-actors-1201675519/

    I think that's kind of odd, I'm not sure this is really a good idea.
    I don't think it would neccessarily be a disaster, but... why?

    It doesn't make much sense, no matter how small a cameo.

    The rumor going around was that the leader of the team that steals the Death Star plans hires Bounty Hunters to help (rumor) and maybe theres a quick scene where Han Solo is approached to join the team and shuts them down right away, like the Wolverine cameo in First Class.

    The only issue I have with the cameo rumor is that isn't this cast supposed to be for a younger Han?
    If he appears in Rogue One, as they are stealing the plans and handing them to Leia to start ANH, wouldn't he be the same age as in ANH?

    Exactly what I thought, too. I'm confused about the whole Rogue One timeline, I wish they would clarify it. It makes no sense for it to be set years and years before ANH.

    Maybe we could see that moment when someone is bordered by the Empire? Could be part of them searching for the rebels.

    Still makes no sense.

    Rogue One takes place literally just before ANH. A young Han doesn't fit in whatsoever.

    In that situation the only person they could pick is Anthony Ingruber. And they won't.

    The only way I could see it fitting would be to have some kind of time jump in the movie... Not a big fan of that theory though...

    Han Solo would not make sense, if Rogue one is about stealing the death star plans. (please no shoe-horned characters)
    Darth Vader and Tarkin, even Leia or Captain Antilles would be the better choice.

    Han Solo is a smuggler and not a bounty hunter folks.
    Please listen carefully to Han Solo's lines in ANH, he is selfish and a coward. (at the end of ANH he changed his attitude)
    --- Double Post Merged, Jan 16, 2016 ---
    So far this is only plausible idea about a Han Solo cameo in Rogue one that make sense to me.

    Yeah he's definitely not, but the idea I had to say it is because if this is indeed a decade or whatever before ANH, Han Solo had to make a living. If he's hired as a "bounty hunter," he could be hired to smuggle the plans on board The Millenium Falcon but then he declines the offer...my idea, I feel, works because hey want Han Solo potential spin off

    I understand you, but it would be forced and shoe-horned, do we need Han Solo in every Star Wars movie now?
    His introduction in ANH was perfect. (not the special edition)
    I liked the bad ass introduction, it was a cool way to introduce a new character. (no wonder he became a fan favourite)
    By the way all characters were well introduced in ANH, Leia/Vader - Luke/Obi Wan and Han Solo.
    Maybe Rogue one could lessen or destroy the great and memorable character introductions in ANH.

    While I do agree with you, there have been plenty of runours going around that he reason for casting SO SOON is to place the actor in another SW film, whether that's Han Solo, BIII or something else altogether .

    He doesn't have to be a Bounty Hunter. They could be looking for a pilot or fast ship or whatever and maybe try to recruit Han Solo for ANY reason. I think it makes perfect sense.

    I sympathize, but what a Han Solo cameo in Rogue One would also do is to create enormous buzz. Many extra news stories about Rogue One would be written and aired, devoted to just this topic. The Han Solo Movie section of this forum would light up with endless passionate debates between fans over every single detail about the scene where young Han shows up, and every smidgen of information about the actor who's playing him. And this is just the sort of thing you want to happen, if you're making a movie. Sure, there's the risk that the buzz will be bad. But Lucasfilm isn't going for any actor unless they're confident in him. And they have good reason to be confident in Lord and Miller, who've made a magnificent career making great movies that pretty much everyone thinks ahead of time are terrible, terrible ideas. So Lucasfilm will bet that the buzz will ultimately be good...

    Yeah that's why they're rushing the casting nearly three years in advance .

    I wonder, though, how reliable the rumors are that they are set on casting the role in the next couple weeks. I don't know much about how big cattle call castings work in Hollywood, but couldn't it be that they are leaving themselves months to complete the casting? Also, once they cast Han Solo, they will probably use the actor they choose as the basis for making other casting choices, seeing how candidates perform when interacting with the main guy.

    If the Han Solo movie's production timeline is similar to that of Rogue One, they'll start shooting around this time next year. Is it possible the process of casting would take, say, 7-8 months? If so, then right now would be the time to start, but not because there will be a Han Solo cameo in Rogue One, right?

    Again, I simply don't know how the process usually works. I assume it depends on the situation to some degree...
