    New, officially-released details on Solo: A Star Wars Story villain Enfys Nest have surfaced! Plus, we have a few rumors to break based on what we've heard about the character...





    Enfys Nest will be following in the footsteps of Captain Phasma as it appears we can add another female to the list of Star Wars movie villains. We were provided this information yesterday and we have been reaching out to sources to confirm it, but here is the information from our initial source on this:

    (We've been hearing the potential for Solo sequels even during the filming with Lord and Miller, in case the movie turns out successful and popular. This was before they were dismissed and replaced by Ron Howard. Still, this could explain the extended contract option for the role.)



    It appears this info we were given may very well be correct, as a portion of this has just been confirmed through French merchandise for the movie:








    This translates to: 'Enfys Nest, an extremely dangerous marauder, has quickly forged an infamous reputation for herself and her gang of pirates - the Cloud Riders.'

    Rumors are starting to swirl that Nest will be played by actress Lily Newmark (listed on Solo: A Star Wars Story' s IMDB page), but we are hearing it is another actress not currently listed on that page.



    Perhaps most important is Nest's role in the story. Despite her imposing appearance, we have heard that she is not the central antagonist of the film. Instead, she's only the villain for part of the movie, much like how Jabba's only the bad guy of Return of the Jedi for the first thirty minutes or so. But, like Jabba, she's important for her portion of the film. From the looks of things, all of her scenes take place on the same planet - one part of which has a warm, beach/desert climate, and the other which has a lot of snowy mountains. (Note that Woody Harrelson's Tobias Beckett appears to be wearing the same outfit in the trailer scene recruiting Han as when he's on the railway facing off with Enfys Nest.)



    We should clarify, that none of this information has been confirmed by Disney or Lucasfilm, but we'll keep you updated as more light is shed on this! I'm incredibly excited to see and hear more about this character and becoming more interested in Solo: A Star Wars Story by the day, and we'll see it all unfold seven weeks from today when Solo opens in theaters.

    Hmm...

    Really interesting that she's apparently signed on for two more movies? Solo sequels, or maybe interconnecting the spinoffs a little more closely?

    I know they say that she's not an actress currently on the list, but I wonder if it's possible Thandie Newton plays the character, eventually revealing herself as an ally of Beckett early on (and by proxy, ally for Han)

    It's a standard procedure for big franchises to sign their actors for three films, regardless of whether their character will appear in another films or not.

    She's going to be a Phasma/Boba Fett-type character - looks cool, doesn't do much. I can feel it. :D

    This is my feeling as well. Also I do not want any Solo-sequels.

    What if the film is really, really good, though?

    No, I think it should have been made to be 100% stand alone. They already have so much in the works movie wise, and TV Show wise. I'd much prefer some completely original characters, new stories, etc. I never wanted a Solo movie to begin with. Many didn't, but I am Intrigued by it now. To me its just a movie set in Star Wars that happens to have Han Solo, Chewbacca and Lando in it. I'm going to see it for the new stuff, not Han Solo.

    According to a new official source, Enfys Nest is a man. Could be a misdirection, though. However, it would be easier to omit the pronoun, rather than deliberately use the wrong one. Unless the misidentification of Enfys' gender is a thing in the movie, which doesn't sound like a great twist.

    I can see two possibilities for the Enfys Nest character.

    1. Either Enfys is female, and turns out to be Han's mother (since the costume reminds me a lot of Valka in the How to Train your Dragon series)

    2. Or Enfys Nest is a former jedi like Quinlan Vos (Enfys has long dark hair) who wears a mask to hide from the empire, and Han and gang have been sent to retrieve is his lightsaber for Dryden Vos's collection. (like young Han's hunt for Quinlan Vos's lightsaber crystal in Star Wars Tales)
