In the film will also be appearing several other characters we already know, like Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Jabba the hutt and Greedo. The movie will be focused on Han Solo at a young age, under his 20’s. No actor has been hired yet.

And also we might be seeing Han Solo’s wife, Sana Solo. Though most people believe Han and Princess Leia might be a couple, Marvel comic books have shown Sana Solo to be his wife.
