Lucasfilm just announced today that Han Solo will have his own film in the Star Wars anthology.
As we all know, there will be three companion films that will come out on the years in between Star Wars Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. We now know that one will belong to Han Solo, and it will be an origin story, focusing on his roots and how he became the dangerous smuggler and wanted man we all loved in A New Hope.
Lawrence and Jon Kasden will be writing the script. You may recognize Lawrence Kasden’s name as he has written The Force Awakens, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. The movie already has directors attached as well, Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) will be at the helm. So far there is no word on any casting choices, and I wish them the best of luck. Whoever they cast as Han has some pretty iconic and badass shoes to fill.
Who do you think would make a good young Han Solo? Let us know in the comments!
The Han Solo movie will hit theaters May 25, 2018.
