Variety reported on Monday that Disney and Lucasfilm are edging closer to deciding who will play young Han Solo in an untitled Star Wars spinoff that will tell the story of the smuggler's life before he encounters Luke and Leia in A New Hope. The short list is said to include:
While all of these choices have potential, we at GGI would like to see some lesser-known names on the list - perhaps Thomas McDowell, who play Finn on The 100? Or Brock Kelly, from Pitch Perfect?
The new Han Solo film is set to begin filming in January 2017, but there are rumors that young Han Solo will have a brief cameo in Rogue One, which has about one month remaining in its shooting schedule - so we might not have to wait until May 2018 to meet young Solo!
