Well, here's a thought as far as stats for the "canon characters" go…
Green Ronin did this with a couple characters from Dragon Age 2 (Tallis and Varric), offering DA RPG stat blocks for them at 1st level, 5th level, and 10th level. Granted, the Varric one you had to pay for, but it also included expanded crafting rules for the DA RPG. Plus, you know, Felicia Day as an elf
But back to my point. As a Web Enhancement, the stats are there for those folks that want them, either as guidelines for players on how to mold their PCs in a similar direction, or for GMs that want an NPC of a similar level of abilitiy or background.
One possible issue with doing canon characters is that EotE is only the first book in the line, and two of the Original Trilogy's iconic heroes, Leia and Luke, are better suited to Age of Rebellion and Force & Destiny respectively, where Han and Chewie are the poster boys for Edge of the Empire. Leia has very litle in the way of Fringe or Outer Rim elements to her character, and while Luke was raised on Tatooine, he soon becomes the focal point of the rebirth of the Jedi Order in the galaxy as the first of a new generation of Jedi Knights.
