Jeeze. Han really was a scoundrel, wasn't he? That's interesting.

I like that they're adding new female characters, romance or otherwise. It would make sense that he would have a different love (hate? con?) interest(s) as he didn't meet Leia until he was older. I can see the Han/Leia fans freaking out, though. I hope we gets lots of young Chewie and Lando.

Maybe they'll cast both women and Han will get yelled at a lot lol.

I would love this!! I have this head canon of Han escaping the Sultan of Boz Pity's palace chased by Princess screaming "wait for me", angry sultan and guards in pursuit.....then he jumps out of a window onto a speeder driven by Chewie, Sana and Lando....and they drive off with Lando congratulating him, Sana scolding him and Chewie making snarky remarks in wookie.

That is a really good point....even if it makes some fans a little angry to see other women in Han's life (friends, enemies, lovers, team members), I'm glad also to see more female characters being brought into the story.....while the EU had plenty of female characters in novels and comics, few made it to the movies.

he looks spot on Lando, has the same type of charm and even physical resemblance. Way better than Ehrenreich/Ford.

This is great news!

I love the statement from Lord and Miller:

We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us. These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.

Although I'm going to miss Billy Dee as Lando, I think Donald Glover as young Lando is awesome casting. I'm really happy with the choice.

Initially I was a little leery of a young Han Solo movie without Harrison, etc., but in the last few months, the idea is slowly growing on me. I'm still a little sad that they're doing a Han movie without Harrison, but I'm open to seeing where it goes.

Weird... my interest in the young Han film was next to 0, but with this casting news I suddenly feel like:

I must admit I adore Han Solo type of humor (It is legacy my father left me- he was a great fan of western movies)
I am just a little more pumped over HS movie than R1.
Looking forward to good laugh, some action, a lots of space criminals and Chewie.

From MSW: Emilia Clark joins the cast of the Han Solo spinoff:
http://makingstarwars.net/2016/11/game-of-thrones-star-emilia-clarke-joins-the-han-solo-star-wars-story/

   
   Emilia Clarke is heading to a galaxy far, far away — and she’s going to meet Han and Chewie.

   StarWars.com is excited to announce that Clarke, known for her stirring portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, will
   join the upcoming untitled Han Solo Star Wars movie. Clarke’s role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures. Clarke joins Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover — previously cast as Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, respectively — in the highly-anticipated film, which is set prior to the original Star Wars trilogy.

   The untitled Han Solo movie, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, is set for release in 2018.

Hopefully Emilia is great in whatever the role is, but I'm a little disappointed because I thought this role was going to be a woman of color. A while back, there were reports that Tessa Thompson, Zoe Kravitz and Naomi Scott had all tested - and they were the only names mentioned at the time.

Heh, I was hoping for Sana Starros to be in the movie, and yet we got another brunette in SW. Like, I have nothing against brunettes, being a brunette myself (lol), but even a redhead would have been a nice change.

Anyway, since we got another brunette in the GFFA, let the Rey-Mother-of-Dragons parentage theories begin.

Yeah,nothing against Emilia she might be great for the role but I think LF shouldn't get irritated when people start speculating that this or that character can be Rey's mom when they keep casting white brunette women to play those roles.I mean come on would it kill them to cast more POC actresses in main roles?
I for one would like to see Rae Sloane on a live action moive and this time Disney won't be able to cast a white brunette woman since Rae's clearly black.

I agree but hey, we still don't know who she's playing. For all we know she could be playing a villain, or perhaps it's nothing more than a glorified cameo (see Max Von Sydow and Gwendoline Christie - perhaps LF aims to get all the major GOT actors for cameos in their SW movies Wink) Time will tell, but like you I hope they cast a WOC as the main heroine for the Han Solo spin-off.
