‘Star Wars’: Who Could Play Young Han Solo in the New Anthology Film?
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.
As announced yesterday, the young Han Solo movie will be directed by The LEGO Movie and Jump Street team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, a pair known for their ability to take movie concepts that don’t seem like good ideas and turn them into amazing ideas. Lord and Miller also have an excellent sense of humor, which should come in handy for Solo’s persona, and the pair have experience in crafting exciting action sequences — also handy for a Star Wars movie.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit theaters on December 19, followed by Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One in 2017, and Episode 8 in 2018. Lord and Miller have plenty of time to get the young Han Solo film right before its 2019 release date.
