Others made jokes at the plot's expense, with one person tweeting: "If you'd read the original novel you'd know Han Solo is actually the name of the doctor, not the monster he creates". And lest you think this is a misreported quote, Variety confirmed what Iger said: "You'll also discover how he got his name".

So it comes as both utter relief and no surprise from Disney on Thursday that Carrie Fisher's performance in December's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" won't be altered through hologram technology.

"When we bought Lucasfilm, we were going to make three films-Episodes VII, VIII and IX", Iger said. In Rogue One, we had some digital character [s].

Actors playing in roles of famous characters in the "Star Wars" films have reappeared as holograms in the past, according to KGMI.

Iger added that would not be happening here: 'We're not doing that with Carrie'.

At a Scale - Future of Tech and Entertainment conference Q&A yesterday, Disney CEO Bob Iger addressed the next couple of Star Wars films in Disney's pipeline.

One of the most iconic characters in cinema history may have a secret past that involves an entirely different identity.

"That (the story) picks up with Han Solo when he was 18-years-old and takes him through when he was 24".

Ben, however, has been seduced by the dark side of the Force and fights for the First Order as Kylo Ren, which means there is plenty of Skywalker-Solo family drama left to be explored in the remaining "Star Wars" films. "We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honour everything she gave to "Star Wars"," the studio said. But it seems Han Solo: A Star Wars Story may be taking a page out of the Indiana Jones playbook. The film also features "Atlanta" star Donald Glover, who plays Lando Calrissian, "Game of Thrones'" Emilia Clarke, "Westworld's" Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Joonas Suotamo and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
