Disney is set to release a prequel film about Han Solo in summer 2018, and new details about the plot have emerged.
While speaking at the University of Southern California, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed:
“You will...discover how he got his name.”
Many fans were shocked, as we've all operated under the assumption that the character brought to life by Harrison Ford was always Han Solo – however, this seems to confirm that he had a different name at birth.
“[The movie] picks up with Han Solo when he was 18 years old and takes him through when he was 24. There are a few significant things that happen in Han Solo’s life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee that will happen in this film.”
We're super excited, but how do you feel about all of this?
