The latest addition to the festival lineup is a special “Future Filmmakers” panel featuring Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, Episode VIII director Rian Johnson and more — and yes, there will be some surprises.

Marvel’s Netlix Daredevil will be keeping Charlie Cox busy for the time being, between The Defenders and a potential third season, but the blind hero may actually have taken aim at the actor’s career.

A few months back it was reported that Disney was looking at over 200 actors for the role of young Han Solo in Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Star Wars spinoff, narrowing the list down to 12 names, including Miles Teller and Neighbors star Dave Franco.

But the old Han Solo is not playing Han Solo in the upcoming movie about the famous smuggler’s exploits in the days before Episode IV - A New Hope. So who will it be?
