Star Wars is back and maybe bigger than ever since the arrival at Disney Studios and there is no shortage of ideas for spin off films as the most mentioned has not been the film closest to us, but the one who hasn’t even found it’s lead, and that’s the “Young” Han Solo prequel spin-off that has Lord & Miller (The LEGO Movie) set to direct.
The list of young actors include some familiar names that may set off alarms for some and raise ears for others. Here they are:
- Miles Teller (Whiplash)
- Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars)
- Dave Franco (Neighbors)
- Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction & Macbeth)
- Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad)
- Logan Lerman (Fury),
- Emory Cohen (Brooklyn)
- Blake Jenner (Glee)
The list is notable for having some of the more recognizable young faces in Hollywood along with a couple newer pretty ones, but there isn’t one name that sticks out among the rest.
Han Solo, as we all know by now, is a charismatic smuggler who was able to make the Kessel run in 12 parsecs while making friends with a Wookie, and it appears one of these young actors is going to depict for us all what happened before the events of Star Wars Episodes IV-VI. Thankfully for us the film doesn’t even begin shooting for another year almost exactly and tons of news will be confirmed in the next year about the production of the film, but for now, let’s wait and see who shall be dawned as the young smuggler turned rebel.
