“In casting Han, the most important thing is: Who has the most interesting, ironic approach to life? And when I think of that, I think of Ellen Page,” Jason told Entertainment Weekly. “She’s a small human being who has the energy to fill Madison Square Garden.”

Ellen starred opposite Jessica Alba, who took on the role of Princes Leia.

“For Leia, I just wanted to find an actress who was beautiful and also had the ability to be tough and funny, and I’ve seen Alba do all of that. And I needed somebody who would have chemistry with Ellen.”
