A Han Solo movie, why didn’t we think of this before?!
It makes perfect sense, why didn’t anyone think of doing a Han Solo movie before? ICYDK, shooting has officially begun on this yet untitled film that is being directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. It stars Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo! You might remember Ehrenreich from Beautiful Creatures and Hail, Caesar! And doesn’t he look just like a cute Harrison Ford from 40 years ago?
Who else is in the cast? FYI, this film stars Woody Harrelson and Game of Thrones fans will be thrilled to know that Emilia Clarke is starring in it too! Donald Glover is Lando Calrissian and Thandie Newton from Westworld also appears in this new anthology film. And Joonas Suotama is Chewy!
What is this film about? It will explore the adventures of Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian before Star Wars: A New Hope. For those of you not too familiar with the Star Wars timeline, this was the first Star Wars film released way back in 1977 starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher.
Filming began on this Monday, February 20 at the Pinewood Studios in London. Directors Lord and Miller said, “Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous. We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”
We’re being told that this Han Solo film will be released on May 25, 2018 so we have to wait a bit before it premieres. But we’re certain that sci-fi fans from around the globe are sitting tight with eager anticipation for this next installment in the Star Wars Saga!
