It has been rumoured for some time (though it never seemed likely) that Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo could feature in the first Star Wars spin off movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Well, we can now finally put that rumour to rest.
“I’m not sure I’m allowed to do this but I think I should. I can put to bed, Han Solo is not in the movie,” director Gareth Edwards told Extra TV.
Well, that’s that then. Unless of course he’s lying…
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, is the first film in the new standalone movies from Lucasfilm. It tells the story of how a group of unlikely heroes unite to undertake a daring and seemingly impossible mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.
