    So, I just saw this on Twitter...my mind is somewhat blown. And I wonder how 'young' they mean by 'young Han Solo.' He's only supposed to be early-30s in A New Hope.

    I have mixed feelings about this one. Seriously I can't see anyone other than Harrison Ford portraying Han, on the other side I thought the same about many of the original TOS Star Trek actors and yet Chris Pine, Simon Pegg and Karl Urban do fantastic jobs in their respective roles so here is hoping they pick the right actor for a young Han Solo.

    Oh wow. I agree with Maj, they really need to find the right actor for this role. But if they manage to do that, I can see this being an awesome film.

    I wonder what kind of story it will be. I mean, Han isn't really the "fight evil for justice" kind of character. So, maybe a Firefly-esque awesome heist in space?

    I wouldn't mind the adaptation of some of the stories from the Han Solo trilogy that AC Crispin wrote a decade or so ago. But considering the fate of most of the expanded universe, I doubt that will happen.

    Sounds like they're really taking this SW Cinematic Universe approach to high gear. Rather excited for this one, but I agree it all boils down to the actor! That's a make or break situation right there.

    Heist in space FTW!

    Who would be some good choices for a young-Han then? I'm assuming he'll be mid-teens to early-20s in the movie.

    And I'm drawing a blank on any ideas....

    I personally think it's a little follish the concept of this game when there is so much more Star Wars content and era's they could explore like a Force Unleashed/Birth of the Rebellion movie or a Revan movie as some examples.
