‘Han Solo’ movie details emerge in character descriptions

When it comes to upcoming Star Wars movies, fans can’t get enough new information. One in particular is the standalone Han Solo film and new character descriptions shed light on the new project.

For example, Ian Kenny’s role will be Rebolt and Stunt man Harley Durst will be playing Moloch.

Han Solo will played by Alden Ehrenreich and will focus on the time in his life from when he was 18 up until he’s around 24, and during that time he’ll meet Chewbacca and acquire the Millennium Falcon. Solo’s buddy Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) will be around and Woody Harrelson is playing a man named Beckett who mentored Han during these important years.

Below are some details via MakingStarWars.

The folks over at MakingStarWars have uncovered a few new Han Solo movie character names, a couple of which may be planets or places. First, let’s talk about the names that are definitively characters in the Han Solo spin-off.

Rebolt – This will be the character played by Ian Kenny, the bully from Sing Street.

“The name Rebolt sounds like he could easily be a droid, or at the very least, the kind of character who is good with mechanics in the Star Wars universe,” notes Slash Film.

Moloch’s HenchmanTien Hoang is playing this character: “Since he’s a henchman of Moloch’s, there’s a chance that the aforementioned character might be more important in the overall film than I suspected.”

Full list:


  • Han Solo
  • Lando Calrissian
  • Chewbacca
  • Beckett
  • Val
  • Mother Proxima
  • Dryden Vos
  • Rebolt
  • Moloch
  • Mooch’s Henchman
  • Gremm?
  • Emlys Nest (if it should be possessive it could be a character but it sounds like a locale)
