Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan will be writing Star Wars: Anthology – Han Solo! The Lego Movie directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord will direct!
Star Wars.com writes:
The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. The story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.
So that confirms Young Han Solo.
“We’re so excited to be working with Chris and Phil, who will bring a fresh new dimension to the Star Wars universe,” said the Kasdans. “They’re two of the smartest, funniest and most original filmmakers around, and the ideal choice to tell the story of Han Solo, one of the coolest characters in the galaxy.”
The film will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy.
The film hits May 25th, 2018. With that release date, this leads us to believe Josh Trank’s unnamed Anthology film is shelved at this point, as we originally thought it was that film which would be released in 2018.
