Entertainment Weekly dropped some more articles about Harrison Ford’s return as Han Solo in The Force Awakens, as well as a few tidbits about the anthology film. Here’s the important bits:

  • Kathleen Kennedy says they don’t want to reveal too much information about Han’s backstory, and the movie will surround an event or events in Han’s life.

  • The Han film is one of the first anthology ideas they came up with.
  • Han will be in his late teens or early 20s.
