Posted to Twitter, a shot of the traditional weapon of Star Wars character Han with a tweak to fans on the traditional film's greeting, 'May the 4th be with you!' to denote the date on which a new male lead was to be chosen for the newest sequel.

It seems the cocktail of Hollywood, space and stardom requires a Force best created when the male leads, at least, are Jews.

The character Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon of Star Wars fame and one of the great leaders of the Rebel Alliance, was brought to life by none other than actor Harrison Ford, whose mother is Jewish.


A few days ago, the lead for the the newest sequel to the Star Wars series was cast for the role of the young Han Solo. That actor too, Alden Ehrenreich, is Jewish.

Some 2,500 actors auditioned for the role.

To further add energy to The Force, producer Steven Spielberg is Jewish as well.

This newest film about the younger days of the lead character is expected to be called Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

The film is slated for release on May 25, 2018.
