Aaron Paul to Play Young Han Solo in Star Wars Spinoff?!

by at .

Looks like the Millennium Falcon might be getting outfitted with some chintzy rims and a secret stash spot, because Jesse Pinkman is rumored to be taking the wheel.

In addition to the J.J. Abrams-directed Episode VII slated for release in December of 2015, Disney plans to produce a series of standalone spinoff features with various directors at the helm.

One such film is rumored to center around the adventures of a young Han Solo, with Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul in the leading role.

Thus far, this rumor has been confirmed by exactly no one who's connected to the production, but it's been reported as fact by a site called Making Star Wars that actually has a pretty good track record with regard to accuracy.

Of course, we'll cop to a bit of wishful-thinking bias, because we're seriously hoping we'll get to hear the line, "It's the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, bitch!"

Let's not get ahead of ourselves in terms of Star Wars rumors, though.

The solo Solo flick (if it happens at all) won't be released for years, so let's just focus on how awesome the Episode VII trailer looks and try to hibernate until this time next year.

You know a movie will be badass when even the fake, fan-made trailers look amazing.

So yeah, our appetite for a galaxy far, far away will soon be sated, and we should be happy with what's already in store. Still, we can't stop thinking that Paul as Solo would be perfect casting...

And yes, many have already made the joke that Khloe Kardashian should be cast as Chewbacca, but we'll repeat it here anyway, because it's our new year's resolution to stop being terrible people, but last we checked, it's still 2014.
