Han Solo Movie Will Reveal How 'Star Wars' Character 'Got His Name'

Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed a couple of juicy nuggets for 'Star Wars' fans on Thursday.

"That picks up Han Solo when he was 18 years old and takes him through when he was 24," Iger said about the Hans Solo movie.

"There were a few things that happened that were significant in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee, that will happen in this film. But you'll also discover how he got his name," hinting it wasn't the character's real name.

Iger also confirmed that Disney was not going to change 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' or digitally create Carrie Fisher for the film following her death.

|She appears throughout VIII. And what I can say about that is, we're not changing VIII to deal with her passing," he said. "So her performance, which we're really pleased with, remains as it was in VIII."

"In Rogue One we created digitally a few characters. One had been an actor who actually passed away and was in an earlier Star Wars film," he said, referring to Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin. "We're not doing that with Carrie."

He also provided his thoughts on the film, which has a December release date.

"I've seen Episode VIII and it's quite good. It picks up where VII left off. We're really excited about it," he said. "I can't disclose much about because that's not what we do."
