No Hayden Christensen & Han Solo For Star Wars: Rogue One

With Darth Vader confirmed for Star Wars: Rogue One, it’s been rumored more than a few times that Hayden Christensen might be in the movie in some form.

Disney’s Kathleen Kennedy shoots down the rumor.

“No. That is not true,” Kennedy told Extra. “No. I can confirm that. He is not.”

Likewise, it’s also been said that Han Solo might be appearing in Star Wars: Rogue One as his younger self, possibly played by Alden Ehrenreich, who will be starring in the upcoming Han Solo movie. That’s not happening, either.

“I’m not sure if I’m allowed to do this, but I think I should. I can put to bed Han Solo is not in the movie,” director Gareth Edwards said.

Edwards also wouldn’t talk about another rumor that says Star Wars: Rogue One ends ten minutes before A New Hope begins.

“I can’t talk about things like that,” Edwards said with a smile.

“Star Wars: Rogue One” has a December 16, 2016 release directed by Gareth Edwards starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, who plays a performance-capture character in Rogue One, and Riz Ahmed.


Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.
