The hype for "Star Wars: Episode 8" will only get bigger and bigger as the rumors about Han Solo's fate is still unclear. The "Rogue One," a take-up movie from "Star Wars" is fast approaching. This film only makes the waiting unbearable to the avid fans of the space war saga.
Fans Just Couldn't Get Enough
"Star Wars" fans were terribly delighted when Disney took up the franchise and produce last year's blockbuster. With additional movies coming up in between the latest trilogy series, avid fans are left wondering about the events that could happen in the franchise's next installment. So many rumors have been going around lately about what will happen to Han Solo. Now, there are new fans that couldn't get enough of the epic saga.
There Will Be A Han Solo Movie
In the "Future Filmmaker Discussion" held in the Star Wars Celebration in Europe in July last year, Rian Johnson the director of "Star Wars: Episode 8" provided a "glimpse of what the future holds in the Star Wars galaxy." He also discussed the untitled Han Solo movie for release in 2018. It appears that the character of Han Solo will not go away after all. At least he will be in a solo movie. The part will be played by Alden Ehrenreich, and not Harrison Ford.
However, Princess Leia Might Have Spilled the Beans
Carrie Fisher who plays Princess Leia in "Star Wars: Episode 8" might have leaked a very important information about the fate of Han Solo. She hinted that there will be a funeral scene in "Star Wars: Episode 8." She gave this information presumably when she misunderstood a question that was asked in the Star Wars Celebration in Europe.
But she immediately corrected herself by saying that the upcoming movie will have a good chance of giving Han Solo a proper send-off. What does she mean by that? Well, we just have to wait for the release of "Star Wars: Episode 8" tentatively on May 26, 2017.
