Han Solo Was Supposed To Make A Cameo Appearance In ‘Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith’ | Film News
Following Harrison Ford’s phenomenal return as Han Solo in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, it has been uncovered that the iconic space smuggler was supposed to make a cameo appearance in 2003’s Episode VII: Revenge of the Sith, maybe that would’ve improved the film…
According to Den of Geek, Star Wars creator George Lucas was remarkably close to including Han in the final installment of prequel trilogy, whilst he also considered significantly changing the character’s backstory in the process. His idea was to include a 10 year old Han, showing him growing up on Chewbacca’s home planet Kashyyyk; with the original script suggesting the character was actually raised by his future beloved co-pilot. The plan was also to introduce Han to master Yoda, who he would have met whilst trying to find General Grevious.
Concept artist Iain McCaig revealed the original design for the character from the Revenge of the Sith art book. When asked to describe a young Han, McCaig explained that there would have been extreme parallels between the childhood Han and the Millennium Falcon Han: “He’s such a persnickety guy later on – he always has to have the best of everything – so I thought it’d be great if when he was a kid, he was an absolute slob”.
