Han Solo will have his own film!
Another Star Wars Spinoff was announced by Disney, this one about Han Solo. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who we know for The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street will be at the helm of the film. The screenplay will be written by Lawrence Kasdan, and his son Jon. Kasdan worked on many Star Wars script, including The Empire Strikes Back and the Return of the Jedi. As of now not much has been said about the story, except that it should be about a young Han Solo.
Here’s a statement of the directors about the project “We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us […] This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.”
The film is set to be released on May 25, 2018.
