Gareth Edwards and Kathy Kennedy Debunk Han Solo Cameo In ‘Rogue One’

Jul 28, 2016

A rumor has been circling Lucasfilm’s Rogue One for over a year and that is a cameo of Han Solo, actor Alden Ehrenreich was recently cast in the role for his own anthology film directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord.

Rumblings had been stating Solo would have some small cameo to help setup the character in the universe before his own movie in 2018.


During Star Wars Celebration in London a few weeks ago Extra TV spoke to director Gareth Edwards and studio head Kathleen Kennedy, who both debunked the rumor. We’ll have to wait and see in December if the pair are being honest with us.

It was reported that Alden had signed a three picture deal with Lucasfilm, which could mean that they are indeed planning on giving him a Han Solo trilogy if Rogue One isn’t apart of the deal.
