Interesting possibility... it is in line with Studios wanting younger fare. This would allow us to see a Young Han, Chewie Possibly and a Young Lando possibly. And as well we get to see the Millenium Falcon as well. Would love to see Lawrence Kasdan working on this film.

What are other's thoughts?

Apparently the film would be placed between episode III and IV.

I like the idea quite a bit. I was just telling Kim once we learned there would be standalones that this would be a smart choice to make. Obviously Harrison is recast but the ideas are pretty limitless. They could even use Harrison as a framing device. An old Han telling of his younger days kind of thing.

Also possibilities of Jabba involvement, maybe have it interrelated with a Boba appearance? Although they denied anything involving Zahn's new book Scoundrels, doesn't mean they can't do a similar storyline just earlier in Han's career.

A LOT of possibilities!

I'd love to see what Hugh Jackman would do in the role of Han Solo. He's about the only known actor that I could think of that could nail the part. Trouble is that he may ge a shade too old to do the part at the timeframe and age Han would be if they are doing a pre episode three timeline.

I think they almost HAVE to go unknown in the role. No one I can think of that would be a good choice is young enough and those who are young enough just wouldn't be a good choice.

Now this is one of those character movies I would love to see. I've always wanted to see the story of how Han and Chewie got together, as well as Lando's connection. Maybe we'll see when Han won the Falcon as well... lots of untold stories there for sure.

I'm sure there are some great young actors that can play the role, but gosh Harrison Fords shoes will be HARD to fill.
