The Star Wars universe is getting no rest lately, what with a new film being released pretty much every year. First there’s Rogue One, then Episode 8, and in 2018 we’ll get the Han Solo spin off story.
Alden Ehrenreich was selected by Lucasfilm and Disney to play a younger version of our favorite smuggler in this film, and since that news was dropped, we haven’t really heard much else other than this could become a trilogy. But now, Variety has let us in on an exclusive that reveals that there are three talented actresses that are currently up for the lead female role in this film. Those three ladies are:
Zoë Kravitz (Dope, Mad Max: Fury Road)
Naomi Scott (Power Rangers)
Tessa Thompson (Creed, Thor: Ragnarok)
Now all of these ladies are very talented, and we’d love to see each of them in this role (whatever it is), but sadly there can only be one. This is currently the only other major casting announcement outside of the rumors of Donald Glover (Atlanta) playing Lando Calrissian, so we’ll have to keep a look out for more. But let us know in the comment section below which of these lovely ladies you’d want to see in a Han Solo film!
The Han Solo Star Wars Anthology film is scheduled to release on May 25th, 2018.
