    I would hate that. I'm really pumped for this movie if it is going to take place right after episode 3 which I think it will be. There no reason to be uncomfortable with a new actor if he turns out to nail the role I say give him a shot, Lucasfilm nows what their doing.

    Wouldnt he only be a teenager at that point...the original concept for Han Solo in the prequels was that he was going to be a homeless kid living on Kashyyk witnessing Yoda and all fighting there

    More like 20 I was thinking, I just don't want them to mix up the timeline when Harrison Ford played Han Solo, preferably.

    If you look at the ages of the actors playing them then it's only a 6-7 year age gap but I think that's too little for looks to change that much unless they're playing younger

    OMAGAD Rey's mom ( just kidding ).

    Sounds like Star Wars is the new sexy for actresses.

    That's a surprise.

    She's arguably the biggest name star in this major cast.

    EW: "'Star Wars' spin-offs: A young Han Solo movie, and a Boba Fett film -- EXCLUSIVE" (February 6, 2013)

    LA TImes: Lawrence Kasdan: "In October of 2012, I got a call from [Lucasfilm President] Kathy [Kennedy] and she said, 'We're going to do some more movies. Can you come up and talk to George [Lucas] and I?' I went up and George had sort of roughed-out many movies — not just the new trilogy but other movies, the spinoffs and things. I wasn't sure I wanted to do anything, but I said, 'I could do the Han Solo movie' — because he's my favorite character. Then they hired me to consult on 'Episode VII.' And within weeks suddenly Disney owned the thing and everyone was shocked." (December 3, 2015)

    EW: "The idea of the stand-alone movies came from George Lucas himself, before handing off the company to Kennedy and selling Lucasfilm to The Walt Disney Co. 'George talked to me about doing this when I first came aboard,' Kennedy says. 'He had often thought about doing it and he had actually written down three or four thoughts and ideas, directions you could go. Obviously inside the mythology there were lots of opportunities. So that was the first conversation I had.' She wouldn’t specify the ideas he had in mind, but said a young Han Solo movie wasn’t among them." (November 22, 2016)

    Q: I know you said the Han Solo movie was one of GL's ideas for spinoffs but according to the EW article, KK said that it wasn't.
    PH: I'd say it is, but unfortunately, can't get into why I think that until, oh, 2018. (November 22, 2016)

    That disappointed me :/ My hype started to grow when Pablo said the movie was GL idea. But I still have faith in the directors, writers and actors.

    He was a mentor in the Hunger Games.

    He was pretty funny as the mentor in Edge of Seventeen.

    Yeah I saw that one too.

    Ben Bailie Smith (AKA Rapper Doc Brown) was just talking on BBC Radio and says he auditioned for the role of Lando.

    Obviously he lost out to Donald Glover, but he's a really talented guy and it wouldn't surprise me if he turned up somewhere in the future in a galaxy far, far away......
