Han Solo and Boba Fett Reported To Be The First Characters Getting Solo Movies

While the news of Star Wars: Episode VII and the rest of the new trilogy have been the real focus of attention post Disney's purchase of LucasFilm, we also have the character solo spin-offs to watch out for as well. It was announced a little after the new of the next trilogy that an all new full Star Wars universe would be fleshed out on the big screen in the next couple of years, and part of this universe would be solo movies for the iconic characters of the Star Wars series. And now the latest news is that the first characters to be getting their own solo debut are none other than Boba Fett and Han Solo.

The latest we'd heard on the Star Wars planned solo movies was that Yoda would be getting his own solo film with Frank Oz keen on returning to reprise the role, and it was also reported Yoda would be a part of a Seven Samurai type film directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Man of Steel). Snyder has since debunked the rumors and Disney has not yet confirmed whether Yoda will indeed be getting his own film. But now the two names coming up seem a little for likely, with both Han Solo and Boba Fett reportedly being the first two characters Disney wants to get their own films.
The Boba Fett film doesn't come as much of a surprise, having been a very popular yet mysterious character in the original Star Wars films, Fett's back story and adventures separate from the original trilogy have been an interest of many Star Wars fans. Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston has consistently brought up his interest in directing a Boba Fett film, and that was before Disney had bought LucasFilm or new films were even announced. So we can still likely see Johnston's name involved with the project in some form, and it helps that he has now established a relationship with Disney through the First Avenger. The film has already been suggested to be similar to this past years Judge Dredd reboot Dredd, which makes the idea of Karl Urban as Boba Fett come to my mind almost instantaneously.
Han Solo comes off a bit more surprising, especially the fact that the film is apparently going to follow a younger Solo between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. While Harrison Ford is presumably in negotiations to return for the new Star Wars trilogy along with the rest of the original cast, it's still unknown whether he'll actually make an appearance in a young Han Solo film, but it's not too far fetched to say he'll at least make an appearance in it similar to Ian Holm's return as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, but with Martin Freeman getting the most screen time as the younger Bilbo. While many young actors automatically have come to people's minds when a role such as a young Han Solo becomes available including Chris Pine (Star Trek), Liam Hemsworth (Hunger Games), Ian Somerholder (Vampire Diaries), Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), Armie Hammer (The Social Network), Nicholas Hoult (Jack the Giant Slayer), Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) and even Taylor Lautner (Twilight), the main actor that's been coming up for the role is none other than Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy).
What do you think of Han Solo and Boba Fett solo movies? Do you think Garrett Hedlund would be a good young Han Solo? Do you agree with Karl Urban as Boba Fett?
