    As a kid, I loved Dash Rendar and Shadows of the Empire. I spent many hours playing the N64 game. I've been wondering if we'll ever see Dash in any of the new Star Wars media (movies, books, comics, etc.).

    While Shadows of the Empire isn't technically canon, Lucasfilm could still decide to use the character of Dash Rendar at some point in the future. After all, his ship The Outrider did make an appearance in the special edition of ANH.

    My question is: Do you want to see Dash Rendar show up in the Han Solo Anthology film? If so, who would you want to play him?

    In all fairness, he's kind of the "Han Solo when Han Solo isn't there", but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    I voted yes, because it would be kind of cool to see him and Han have a possible friendly rivalry going on. Plus the Outrider is a cool ship as well, and I think it was given a shout out of sorts in the Special Edition version of ANH. I know that doesn't count for much, but still.

    EDIT: Yeah, I totally missed you mentioning the ANH appearance in my first readthrough... :p

    I know people are probably going to moan at this mention, but honesty I could easily see Chris Pratt playing Rendar. He seems to have the cocky space-jockey thing down pat.

    Like the character of Dash Rendar being largely influenced by Han, the ship itself was also pretty much based on the Falcon. The whole EU info about it even had it being produced by the same manufacturer as the Falcon, even to the point of making it the same model line of "light freighters" (YT-series). I seem to remember it being treated almost as a newer and somewhat fancier version of the Falcon's model.

    Falcon will always be the coolest ship in the galaxy, but in a new & refreshing way (since i didn't knew the ship before) i ALMOST like the outrider more , maybe because i have tried to draw a different "falcon-like" ship many times & never succeded, it's absolutely genious to put the cockpit in the "front" sideways :)

    I actually really like that idea. I don't think that he's quite right for Han, but he'd do great with a similar character, like hey! Dash Rendar's a similar character!

    Me too! We should start a Pratt As Rendar petition.

    And he's technically canon, since his ship is in A New Hope!

    I went with a no. I liked Shadows of the Empire, but I wasn't a big fan of Rendar, too much of a jock for my liking.

    My first thought is that it would be interesting to have him play an older space pirate smuggler that Solo looked up to but then it would put Solo as not the penultimate space pirate. Han needs to cut things with his own teeth as it were. I would prefer to see a young slightly less savvy Han having to make his way in the soundrel world with Chewie bailing him out.
