The untitled Han Solo movie is set to open on May 25, 2018. But Harrelson's recent comments on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon appear to have debunked those rumors once and for all. "That's all I can say". Remember, Kylo Ren wasn't too far away from Jacen Solo, Han's son from the novels.
The actor has also revealed that the droid's signature British accent went through a couple of iterations before director Gareth Edwards settled on his favourite.
Harrelson's openness about his Star Wars character reflects a departure from Lucasfilm's policy of extreme secrecy surrounding their films.

Lots of what makes Han Solo so great is his mysterious past and all these events just being hinted at. Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin will executive produce.
When it comes to Star Wars films there is always one simple fact that everyone can bet on - filmmakers will remain tight lipped about the movie's details outside of official press announcements and movie trailers.
"I've seen [Episode VIII] and VIII is quite good", he said about December's The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson.
Disney also has plans to continue the Star Wars storytelling beyond Episode 9 and the current lineup of spinoff films.
