han solo movie cameo

The Han Solo movie cameo list just became a lot more exciting, with director Ron Howard teasing a fan-favorite duo who are making their way from a non-canonical expanded universe far, far away.

That’s right, two Star Wars Legends characters will make a cameo in the Han Solo standalone prequel, starring Alden Ehrenreich as the young smuggler with a heart of gold. And rather than fading into obscurity like much of the now non-canon Star Wars expanded universe, here is definitive proof that they were here.

han solo death

The big debate around Han Solo may no longer be “did he shoot first?” but “was he supposed to die at first?”

The death of Harrison Ford‘s iconic sci-fi character reverberated throughout the Star Wars universe, affecting characters both new and old in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But the Han Solo death scene might not have happened if it was up to Disney. Because not only did killing Han Solo impact on his newfound mentee Rey (Daisy Ridley), his ex-wife Leia (Carrie Fisher), and his own son who did the deed Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), it also threatened to impact the Disney brand as well.

Thandie Newton Han Solo Character

Thandie Newton earned her place in the science fiction pantheon with her incredible work in the first season of Westworld last year, but she’s now looking to get nice and cozy with the genre in the Han Solo spin-off film. She recently stepped away from shooting season 2 of HBO’s mind-bending series for reshoots on the latest Star Wars story…and wouldn’t you know it, a perfectly innocent picture she took with director Ron Howard offers an intriguing detail worth exploring.

Han Solo Ralph McQuarrie

By now, Star Wars fans should be well aware of the impact that concept artist Ralph McQuarrie had on the franchise. George Lucas once described McQuarrie’s contribution to Star Wars as “incalculable” because of how integral the artist’s early sketches were to translating Lucas’s script into a visual guide for the talented craftspeople to be able to bring the story to life.

Some of McQuarrie’s unused designs and early ideas have been incorporated into various pieces of Star Wars mythos over the years, from J.J. Abrams bringing his art to the big screen in The Force Awakens to McQuarrie’s Darth Vader design finding its way into Star Wars Rebels. Now we know Han Solo director Ron Howard will keep that trend alive: the filmmaker has shared a photo involving a Han Solo Ralph McQuarrie easter egg that only the most eagle-eyed fans would have been able to spot. Check it out below.

Artemis movie

It’s been three months since the rather shocking movie news broke that Phil Lord and Chris Miller had been fired from the Star Wars anthology film focused on Han Solo. Even though a large portion of the filming on Han Solo was complete, disagreements with Lucasfilm resulted in Lord and Miller being let go and eventually replaced with Ron Howard. While the directing duo may not have been able to reveal their full vision of a galaxy far, far away, they’re still headed back beyond the stars for their next feature, an adaptation of a new novel from the author of The Martian. See details on the next Lord and Miller movie below.
