by Britt Hayes July 8, 2015 @ 10:33 AM
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. They need to find an actor who not only has features that resemble something close to a younger version of everyone’s favorite intergalactic smuggler, but carries Harrison Ford’s signature swagger as well. The swagger part is the more difficult element in this equation, as few actors are equipped with that special quality, but we’ve come up with a list of a handful of young stars who might be up to the challenge.

There are only so many Star Wars characters rich and popular enough to anchor their own spinoff film, and from the moment Disney and Lucasfilm announced they would be pairing the new Episodes VII through IX with so-called Anthology films, fans have speculated which of those characters might receive their own spotlight.

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. The second Anthology, per The Hollywood Reporter, will give Han Solo that showcase that so many nerds want.

Since this period marks the height of Darth Vader’s powers, it shouldn’t be surprising to learn that the Dark Lord of the Sith will pop up in the film. But it is! And what a pleasant surprise it is!

The new Star Wars movies have been going out of their way to assemble a new cast of diverse actors. The days of the token Lando are a thing of the past – Star Wars: The Force Awakens will feature a lead in John Boyega and Star Wars: Rogue One has locked down the very talented Riz Ahmed. The latest actor to supposedly enter the fold is the actor and martial artist Donnie Yen, one of the great badasses of international cinema ... and the kind of name that will add all kinds of zeroes to any American film’s Chinese release.
