Lucasfilm Confirms A Young ‘Han Solo’ Film

Han Solo Anthology details:

The film will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Lego Movie) and written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back) and Jon Kasdan (Freak and Geeks).

The Han Solo Anthology is scheduled for release on May 25, 2018.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy spoke with Entertainment Weekly about plot details and the age of Han Solo.

“I think the key here is that we are identifying an event or events in Han Solo’s life that gives you some idea of who he is and why he is the character we have all known to love,” Kennedy says.

“You can imagine, given who we’ve chosen to come in and direct, it should be very entertaining and funny,” Kennedy says. “Han Solo is the character inside Star Wars that everybody knows has a wit and sense of humor. So that’s what this should be.”

“He’ll definitely be probably in the high teens, low 20s,” Kennedy says. “We’re not introducing you to a 10-year-old Han Solo.”
