There are few characters in cinema as perfect as Han Solo. Harrison Ford's shabby, strutting, occasionally down-at-heel smuggler is beloved – and for good reason. Ford invests the character with a perfect mix of edge (shooting Greedo first; chucking an enemy into the tentacles of a Rathtar) and hugability (his relationship with Chewie; “I know...”). He's our wonderful scoundrel and a hero for kids and adults alike. And now Disney are planning a prequel movie examining his early years.
