The new animated series of shorts Star Wars: Forces of Destiny might focus on female heroes in the world of Star Wars, but this doesn't preclude iconic male heroes from making appearances in upcoming installments. Jedi News reports the latest issue of Star Wars Insider reveals that in upcoming installments, both Han Solo and Finn will make appearances, with John Boyega voicing the character he brought to life in The Force Awakens.
Lucasfilm Story Group member Carrie Beck divulged the details about the upcoming series in the article, and while she pointed out Boyega's involvement, she did not reveal who could potentially be voicing Han.
Debuting earlier this year, Forces of Destiny told stories centering on Rey, Jyn Erso, and Leia, with Daisy Ridley and Felicity Jones lending their talents to their respective characters.

“It's been announced that we'll see Hera [from Star Wars Rebels], which will be great,” Muro said. “I think people will enjoy seeing the characters in the second season.”
Of the talent involved with the series, Muro explained, “It was thrilling that they wanted to be involved, and Lupita [Nyong’o] as well. It was so nice to have them with the TV actors and the voice actors — it brings the worlds together in a way I didn't expect. It gives it more legitimacy, but beyond it
