Yesterday was the biggest Star Wars announcement in years, the original Star Wars cast were confirmed to return for next years massively anticipated trilogy sequel. Including the big trio Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. No sooner had the announcement been made when bookies started to take bets on the franchise, the skeptics over at Paddy Power don’t expect Han Solo to last long in the franchise, giving him odds of 5/6 to be killed off. His wife Princess Leia doesn’t fare much better with odds of 11/10 to meet her doom.
The current odds to be killed off in Episode VII 5/6 Han Solo 11/10 Leia 5/2 Luke
The bookies are also taking bets on the title of the next Star Wars movie, with the slightly cheesy ‘A New Dawn’ being the current favourite at 3/1
