We've now got a name and a description for Harrelson's Han Solo character
While Star Wars fans everywhere wait on a trailer for The Last Jedi, the wheels are already turning on the franchise’s next film — a Han Solo spinoff. Woody Harrelson, for one, is on his way to London to film his role in the young Solo movie and during an interview on Wednesday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the actor revealed a few details about his character.
“I play a guy named Beckett who’s kind of a criminal and a mentor to Han,” Harrelson told host Jimmy Fallon.
Star Wars plot points are obviously more closely-guarded than the Death Star plans at this point, so Harrelson wasn’t able to reveal much more than that. But even that character description is a nice detail to have for a movie that still lacks an official title.
Watch the clip above.
The young Han Solo movie, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as Solo, and counts Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Donald Glover, and Michael K. Williams among its cast, is out May 25, 2018.
