Woody Harrelson’s Han Solo Character Is a Good Guy with a Criminal Heart

Woody Harrelson has given some brand new information about his role as Beckett in the upcoming Han Solo: A Star Wars Story.

It’s no surprise that official news has been hard to come by as Harrelson, who is at Pinewood Studios in London filming Han Solo, shared some interesting information regarding his character in the hotly anticipated prequel.

While speaking to The Standard, Woody Harrelson echoed his past feelings about the chance to be in a Star Wars movie. He expresses his excitement as such.

“I am totally psyched to be making a Star Wars film. But the secrecy is on another level.”

Harrelson has already shared this bit of information and we’re sure that you’d be crazy not to be excited to be involved with a Star Wars movie, too. The exciting news is what Harrelson brought up next. He says this.

“What I can say he’s a good character, he is a mentor to Han and a criminal, but good at heart.”

Harrelson’s Beckett character will be a criminal mentor to Han Solo, but with a good heart, which makes sense when one thinks of the way that we were introduced to Han in A New Hope.

Harrelson is rumored to have beaten out Christian Bale for the role of Beckett and he feels that he and the crew are “gonna make the best one,” meaning the best movie in the Star Wars franchise.


Han Solo: A Star Wars Story will be about the origins of Han Solo and that’s all that is known officially.

It has been rumored that the movie will be about the origin of the Millennium Falcon as well.

This Han Solo prequel will star Alden Ehrenreich as the young titular hero and if the leaked concept art is official, it appears that his costume will be very similar to Han’s outfit in The Empire Strikes Back.

Han Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to open on May 25th 2018 and is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
