Han Solo was married before Leia?
Lucasfilm has narrowed down the lead female role of the upcoming young Han Solo movie to four non-white actresses. The actual role is unknown but current speculation centers on the recent Star Wars comic book character of Sana Solo, the first wife of Han Solo. The rumor is largely fueled by the fact that the comic character is also non-white.
The books and the comic books provide a fertile proving ground for potential characters. Since the Star Wars offerings are tightly managed, it’s possible that the “unknown role” will be that of Mrs. Sana Solo.
It should be noted that in the John Cassady and Jason Aaron Star Wars comic, the character of Sana Starros “married” Han Solo as part of a cover operation in the story. So how “married” they are might be slighted exaggerated.
Even so, the prospects of adding more depth to a beloved and scoundrel-like character adds some intrigue to the possibilities within an expanded series of Star Wars stories.
After a very wide casting call, Alden Ehrenreich was given the plum role of a youthful Han Solo in what can only be expected to be a new run of films in the beloved Star Wars franchise.
The movie is yet to be officially named, and is currently scheduled for a May 2018 release date.
