Casting the role of young Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars anthology film is going to be one of the trickier tasks Lucasfilm and Disney have ever faced.

Top of just about every list: Han Solo, the beloved, amoral bounty hunter and captain of the Millennium Falcon. The first announced Anthology movie, Star Wars: Rogue One, will focus on the story of the Rebel fighters who stole the plans for the original Death Star that become crucial to the plot of the first Star Wars.
