I know that I’ve been saying this a lot lately but, unfortunately, it was another slow week for Star Wars rumors.

However! I was able to find one, very exciting casting rumor about the female lead of the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film!

AND! As always, please STOP READING NOW if you would like to avoid any potential Star Wars rumors and/or spoilers!!!!


Okay, here we go…

RUMOR: Casting has begun for the female lead of the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film.

Variety has reported that, according to their sources, Tessa Thompson (Selma, Creed), Naomi Scott (Power Rangers), and Zoe Kravitz (X-Men: First Class) are all testing for the female lead.

As we all know, Han Solo will be played by Alden Ehrenreich; and it’s exciting to think about which woman will snag the role of his female counterpart.

Personally, I want a fiery, awesome, lovely, passionate, super-badass, complex woman cast in this role. And these three women certainly fit the bill.

I think we need a woman who can hold her own with Han, challenge and encourage his personal growth (just as much as he will hopefully challenge and encourage hers), and possibly even mirror some of Leia’s traits which would be fun for fans! – As we saw with Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Han obviously appreciates strong women. I think it would be great to see that strong women have always been significant throughout Han’s life.

According to the report, a decision will not be made for at least a few more weeks. So we will have to stay tuned!
