As with all rumours, take this with a grain of salt.
This news is supposably coming from The Sun however I couldn’t find the original article. Being a newspaper operating out of the UK I’m not really sure how close to the development of these Star Wars projects they would be, but apparently their sources have said that Kingsman star, Taron Egerton, will be playing a young Han Solo in his own spin-off.
They even report that the movie will explore the beginning of Han’s not so great relationship with Jabba the Hut and how he acquired the Millennium Falcon. We already know from The Empire Strikes Back that Han wins the Millennium Falcon over a bet with Lando Calrissian, so I guess this means that we’ll be seeing this bet play out and therefore we’ll also be seeing a young Lando.
Overall I don’t really want a young Han Solo movie, I just don’t think we need it; I’d rather see new stories. While I love Taron Egerton and think he’s a great actor, I just can’t see him as being Han Solo. That being said, I prefer this casting choice over the originally rumoured Aaron Paul.
What do you guys think, who would you rather see play the charismatic smuggler? Or are you on board with Egerton?
