That picture above is a concept design for a young Han Solo that almost made it into Star Wars Revenge Of The Sith. Slashfilm reported the story. Here's what they had to say. Click the link above to read more. Personally myself I'm glad they decided to leave out a young Han Solo. What about you?
Lucasfilm created concept designs of the character in the early 2000s for a brief segment that was cut from Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Thats right, young Han Solo was originally set to appear in the last Star Wars prequel. Art, details and more after the jump.
George Lucas wanted to include a young Han Solo in Revenge of the Sith, but due to the timeline of that film, the character was only to be about ten years old. This idea made it far along in the development process. He appeared, complete with dialogue, in the Kashyyyk battle scenes of the rough draft of the screenplay. Lucasfilm even had concept art approved. Solo’s role was to be a helpful kid who helps find the elusive General Grievous’ location.
