Surely you’ve heard that a Star Wars movie devoted to exploring the origins of your very favorite scoundrel, Han Solo, is in the works!
This new film in the Star Wars cinematic universe will chronicle the adventure-filled past of the iconic pilot and everyone’s favorite Wookiee—and filming just started in London!
Want to see your new boyfriend…I…mean the young fox playing Han Solo?
FEAST YOUR EYES.
Look at all the cool people in this movie!
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
But…I don’t feel like we got a good look at our new Han Solo…
It’s fine. I’m fine. He’s fine.
The film remains untitled and is being references simply as “the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story.”
The movie will explore Han and Chewie’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.
The film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018. Start crafting your paper countdown chain now.
