Han Solo Movie To Cover Six Years
Disney CEO Bob Iger spoke a little about next year's young Han Solo movie. The details are not much but more then we have now. He said the story will cover Han Solo from age 18 to 24 and show how he won the Millennium Falcon from Lando, meets Chewbacca and "getting his name." The phrasing is odd but likely referring to Solo's reputation as a smuggler. In addition, a theory was Woody Harrelson would play Garris Shrike in the movie since the name is from the old Extended Universe in a story about Solo's mentor as a child and already vetted for any legal issues that might arise. However in a Tonight Show appearance the actor said "I play a guy named Beckett who’s kind of a criminal and a mentor to Han" so that theory is out the door.
