Iger confirmed that the film will show a younger Solo, between the age of 18 to 24, and will show the event leading up to him acquiring the Millenium Falcon and meeting him best Wookiee friend.

"We're shooting now an origin story of Han Solo, which will come out in 2018", said Iger.

"But you'll also discover how he got his name".

Iger finished: "Her performance remains as it is in VIII".

"When we bought Lucasfilm, we were going to make three films - Episodes VII, VIII and IX", said Iger. He said they won't add Fisher digitally, as they did with the late Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin in last year's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story". "One had been an actor who actually passed away and was in an earlier Star Wars film", Iger continued. We're not doing that with Carrie, although technology gives the ability to do so many different things today.

However, if you think the two will simply let Star Wars rest after Episode IX airs, then think again.

Iger confirmed that the young Han Solo film, now in production under directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("The Lego Movie"), will serve as an origin story for everyone's favorite scruffy-looking scoundrel.

Edwards continued to explain that the Han Solo spin-off is a much more hard challenge than "Rogue One". 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.

Details on upcoming Star Wars films are usually harder to find than Death Star plans.

In the eagerly-anticipated movie, Harrelson is set to appear as the titular character's mentor, Garris Shrike, while Hail Caesar's Alden Ehrenreich will fill Harrison Ford's shoes as Solo.
