"I'm assuming, because I haven't talked to the writers, that these movies would be about our offspring -- like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character," he told Entertainment Tonight.
It has also been rumored that one of the spinoff films that Lucasfilm and Disney will make will focus on Han Solo's background.
