Han Solo as a lizard? It’s true! The book Star Wars: The Annotated Screenplays reveals that in the original Star Wars script, George Lucas had written Han Solo as being played by a giant reptilian creature. Long time Star Wars editor Randy Stradley said, “I’m not sure where I first read about The Star Wars – it was years and years ago – but the idea of Luke Skywalker being an older Jedi General, and Han Solo being a six foot lizard.”
Holy scruffy looking nerfherders! What would that have looked like?
