It was always rumored that Han Solo would make an appearance some time during
the new Star Wars trilogy. The initial rumor reports stated that
Han was probably going to play a part on the side of the empire, such as
becoming one of the first non-clone storm troopers. His experience with
the Empire supposedly gave Han the insight on how to become the best blockade-runner
in the galaxy. Well, from latest rumors, this does not seem to be the case.
But before I get into Han, check out the new leaked Revenge of the Sith
image above? Looks pretty cool, and it seems we have some first generation
speeders. The only thing that bums me out about the pic is that it looks
like it belongs to a computer game rather than a movie [it might].
Back to Han-- The latest reports floating on the web are confirming that
we can expect to see a young Han Solo in Episode III. According to reports,
we encounter Han Solo on Kashyyyk, as he helps the forming alliance to track
down General Grevious.
Another Han detail may come as a bit of a shock. Recent reports are suggesting that Han Solo is raised by Chewbacca on Kashyyyk. These guys have been buddies for life.
