SFX - - Star Wars Celebration -

The fi­nal big panel of the week­end was a mas­ter­class in keep­ing peo­ple en­ter­tained with­out ac­tu­ally re­veal­ing much in­for­ma­tion about 2017’s Episode VIII and 2018’s Han Solo stan­dalone movie. So what have we learned? Well, we didn’t get a title for Episode VIII, though its di­rec­tor, rian John­son, did re­veal that he played a Stormtrooper in Rogue One, and that his movie will pick up im­me­di­ately af­ter The Force Awak­ens. (Though we kind of al­ready knew that be­cause of clues the cast had let slip.) It was also con­firmed (of­fi­cially) that the man granted the chal­leng­ing task of play­ing the young Han Solo will be Alden ehren­re­ich. Though we al­ready knew that too be­cause it was such a badly kept se­cret that pretty much the whole world was treat­ing it as fact any­way. So aside from the info that ehren­re­ich did screen­tests on the Mil­len­nium Fal­con – and with Chew­bacca – we didn’t ac­tu­ally learn much at all. But some­times it’s as much about the jour­ney as the des­ti­na­tion. right?

The new Han Solo.
