Last week, we told you that Woody Harrelson was rumored to play a mentor role to Han Solo in the upcoming, untitled Star Wars standalone film about the character's adventures before A New Hope. Yesterday, we told you that it was officially confirmed that Harrelson would have a role in the film, though the exact nature of that role was not confirmed. Today, in a live fan Facebook chat with Mashable, Harrelson has revealed that the original rumor was correct, and he will play the role of a mentor:
I'm a mentor to Han, but I'm also a bit of a criminal. I don't think I should say much more than that because the Force is not allowing me.
How many more article can we and the rest of the entertainment media squeeze out of this single story? Well, we haven't even begun to get "first looks at Woody Harrelson in Han Solo film," so we think this one has a lot of legs still.
The movie is set to be released in 2018.
