Behind the scenesEdit
- "I play a guy named Beckett, who's kind of a criminal and a mentor to Han."
- ―Woody Harrelson, on Tobias Beckett
Tobias Beckett is a character set to appear in the upcoming Han Solo film of the Star Wars Anthology Series, and the character is portrayed by actor Woody Harrelson. Early fan speculation believed that Harrelson would be playing Garris Shrike—Han Solo's mentor in the Star Wars Legends continuity who first appeared in A. C. Crispin's The Han Solo Trilogy book series—but this theory was proven incorrect when Harrelson revealed Beckett's name on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
According to screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan, the character of Tobias Beckett was inspired by Long John Silver, the main antagonist of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1883 novel Treasure Island.
