Han Solo Gets Makeover for Star Wars 7.
In the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Wars Episode 7 there are many changes and some may notice Han Solo is getting a bit of a makeover since it is 30 years later.
CelebNMusic247.com has learned via Indie Revolver that there has been about six dozen Han Solo costume designs, so they’re saying that he could have quite a few wardrobe changes throughout the film.
Note that at this stage the Han Solo makeover is still conceptual and that here’s always a chance certain designs won’t make it into the film. Word is, Harrison Ford‘s character Han has two gun holsters now. One looks to be for the DL-44 blaster he’s always carried, but what about the other?
Could that mean Han will be rocking two of them this time around?
Here’s the breakdown:
There’s also a rumor that Han’s got a brand new ride in the film. We told you a little bit about it when some story information popped up about a month ago, but besides the fact that the ship isn’t the Millennium Falcon, there weren’t any details on the new vehicle at all. However, now that Indie Revolver showed off that Han Solo concept art, Badass Digest came back to reveal they were holding out on us and offered up this additional information on Han and Chewie’s ship:
“According to my sources Han and Chewie are piloting a Super Star Destroyer. I wasn’t 100% sure on this, but the image of Han with Imperial rank sells me.”
To be honest, I never would have guessed that that was an Imperial rank marker on Han’s coat in the Indie Revolver image, but perhaps the marker just got revamped for the new films. I guess the original design might look a little hokey now.
Badass also goes on to spill some information pertaining to the Millennium Falcon’s whereabouts:
On top of having a Lando-type character in the new film, apparently we’ll also get to see some more familiar ships as well:
“There are other familiar spaceships in this movie, including three variations on TIE Fighters. There’s the classic design, the TIE Interceptor and a new generation TIE Bomber – the pods on these are stacked, not side-by-side.”
Before wrapping up, Badass threw in this one last note:
“Oh, and back to Han – you will get to see him use a lightsaber once again.”
