Disney CEO Teases "Another Decade and a Half" of 'Star Wars' Films

Fresh after Woody Harrelson revealed that his character has named Beckett and he was playing a criminal mentor to Han Solo, Disney CEO Bob Iger dropped some new information on the movie. Han Solo, the cocky space pirate from the Star Wars franchise, may have had a different name when he was younger. "But you will also discover how he got his name", he revealed.

It's more likely that Han has to change his name because he's running from something.

"Her performance, which we've been really pleased with, remains as it was", he said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"She's in [Episode] VIII, and we're not changing VIII to deal with her passing".

Bob said last year's spin-off movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story featured characters which were "digitally created" including one - Peter Cushing - who had died. "One had been an actor who actually passed away and was in an earlier Star Wars film", Iger continued.


"We're not doing that with Carrie", he added.

When it comes to Star Wars films there is always one simple fact that everyone can bet on - filmmakers will remain tight lipped about the movie's details outside of official press announcements and movie trailers.

"We're starting talk about what could happen after Episode IX". Now, we have a few more details about what we'll learn along his journey from becoming an infamous scoundrel to Rebel hero.

Now it appears that Iger has confirmed that the movie will jump around through Han Solo's young adult life, highlighting the moments that defined the character and made him into the man we see in the original trilogy. While the average moviegoer might just respond with a shrug or "whatever", Star Wars superfans might seriously get up in arms about such a thing. "About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories", Iger said.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directing the movie, with cast members Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
