The Star Wars films have come a long way since their humble beginnings back in the 1970s. The galaxy far, far away has become an interconnected universe of films, no longer simply tied to the drama of the Star Wars clan. With an array of standalone movies on the way -- beginning with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in December -- there's really no limit to the stories we will soon get to witness.

With that in mind, the recent confirmation of Alden Ehrenreich as the new Han Solo has set our expectations for the prequel film sky high. However, we don't know much about how the new actor will fill Harrison Ford's shoes -- other than the fact that it will take place before he agreed to fly an old man, a kid, and a pair of droids to Alderaan. We've compiled a list of established, but unconfirmed Star Wars characters that could (and should) pop up alongside the beloved smuggler in Phil Lord and Chris Miller's upcoming standalone film. Now let's get started with one who never even made it passed the first Death Star...

Star Wars Grand Moff Tarkin

Grand Moff Tarkin

Believe it or not, Han Solo didn't always fight on the most righteous side of the Galactic Civil War -- at least if this part of the Expanded Universe remains canon. During his younger years he enlisted in the Imperial forces and trained to become a pilot. With that in mind, this seems like a prime opportunity to bring back Grand Moff Tarkin (originally played by the late Peter Cushing in A New Hope) as a central member of The Empire's imposing military. Tarkin has become a major element on the Star Wars Rebels, and considering the fact that the timelines more or less seem to line up, it would make perfect sense for him to appear in Han Solo's standalone adventure -- possibly even accompanied by a wheezing Darth Vader.
