Woody Harrelson in The Hunger Games

In a chat with The Independent, actor Woody Harrelson spoke briefly about his role in the upcoming Han Solo spin-off film:

“I am totally psyched to be making a Star Wars film. But the secrecy is on another level. What I can say he’s a good character, he is a mentor to Han and a criminal, but good at heart.”

So…not much in the way of shocking revelations there, but it seems like young Han’s apple doesn’t fall far from his mentor’s tree.

Han Solo Movie First Look

Of course, this speculation implies that those ships will be making a return in Rian Johnson’s new movie as well, but we’ll have to wait and see how if that’s just wishful thinking.
