    I guess since the latest Terminator film flopped, she was eager to join another sci-fi franchise. :p

    I'm still kinda scratching my head about who she is. Didn't they say they were going out of their way for a non-white actress? I looked for articles disputing this, but no go. Hmmmm

    11/23: I only remember them reporting there was a search for a female lead then the sites jumped the gun and speculated it was Han's wife Sana from the comics. Then reports that Naomi Scott, Tessa Thompson, and Zoe Kravitz tested for the role. To my knowledge, ethnicity was never specified.

    12/15: Han Solo movie starts filming in February.

    Yeah, scheduling Han Solo to May never made sense to me at all. Why would Disney put Star Wars and Infinity War in the same month? December works as an annual Star Wars month.

    Isn't the point of using a fake name so that no one knows what you're making and thus they don't overcharge you for services? Kind of defeats the purpose if they share the fake name on the internet...

    1/30: Oh well. I know they usually try to avoid papa and stalkers and such in person. I see fake signs in LA all the time.

    Hmmm. CGI? Another alien or maybe a female-voiced droid?

    ...Woody looks really out of place. XD I'll reserve final judgement until the film, though. We all said the same thing about Michael Keaton and Batman and look how that turned out.

    Rumors are suggesting Williams is playing Cad Bane. Hmmm

    That's neat. I heard he was a big deal on the Clone Wars TV show and appeared in the Darth Maul comic plus got a mention in the Kanan comic. Basically the top bounty hunter after Fett was killed in Episode 2. Makes sense he would cross paths with Solo at some point.

    He was an excellent villain on CW. So if this is true, he is perfect casting.

    I dig the implication they're moving away from the main villain being Sith/Empire/First Order. I've always been curious about the criminal underworld.

    I'd think you have to move on in Han Solo. Remember he didn't even believe in it in EP 4.
