Set way before the events of A New Hope, Darth Vader and all that shady Empire business, the Han Solo spin-off will be released in 2018 and joins Rogue One in a collection of films created to expand the stories of the Star Wars universe. When Bay asked about the galaxy far, far away, according to reporters in the audience, Iger was more than forthcoming.

So his name will be "Beckett" and he'll be a mentor to Han Solo but also kind of a criminal.

EW reached out to Disney representatives for clarification of the meaning, but it sounds a lot like Han Solo isn't this character's original moniker.

With Rogue One out of the way, attention is shifting to Disney's next Star Wars stand-alone film, which follows the adventures of a young Han Solo.

"Her performance, which we're really pleased with, remains as it was in VIII", Iger said. After that panel, Wen did not appear in any major panels or any Rogue One press junkets in the US. One of the big unknowns is just how Disney and the Star Wars storytellers are going to handle the passing of Carrie Fisher, who has played Princess Leia. So far as we've always known, Han Solo is the smuggler's given name. As it has been with their other Star Wars properties, everyone's staying pretty tight-lipped on the details, but we know Harrelson will be shooting in London until the end of July. The latest script has been penned by screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and his son Jon (Dawson's Creek). No, I think what Fritz means is "making a name for himself", but just doing so in under 140 characters. "You'll also discover how he got his name". Let's wait and see what more Lucasfilm has to say about the character during the Star Wars Celebration Orlando in April. The team is thinking about "what could be another decade and a half of Star Wars stories", he said.
