The official cast for Star Wars: Episode VII was revealed recently and it showed a whole host of new names along with some familiar faces from the original Star Wars trilogy. Fans were delighted to learn that we will get to see Harrison Ford back in the role of Han Solo for Star Wars: Episode VII and it looks like we might get to see quite a lot of him.
While the casting rumours will now die down, it has not stopped other Star Wars: Episode VII rumours from appearing and one of the latest ones centres around Harrison Ford and his Han Solo character. It is claimed that we will see Han Solo in a big role in Star Wars: Episode VII ahead of a planned Han Solo spin-off movie, which will is currently in development.
It was previously thought that the Han Solo spin-off movie would be an origin story that would focus on the younger years of the character. If that was the case then surely we would see a new actor cast in the role, which would mean Harrison Ford being replaced. With that said, we could see Harrison Ford appearing in the Han Solo spin-off movie in other ways. We will just have to wait and see.
Before we all go getting too caught up in the Han Solo standalone movie though, we still have Star Wars: Episode VII to come. It is expected that Star Wars: Episode VII will begin shooting in May, with the movie set to hit the big screen on December 18, 2015 in both the US and the UK.
