Since Disney’s take over of Lucasfilm in 2012, the Star Wars film universe has been set for expansion. The latest to receive his own origin story is none other than the sarcastic smuggler Han Solo. The prequel will focus on the young Millennium Falcon captain on his adventures before his famous encounter with Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine.
In addition to this, the film will be directed by BAFTA Award winning duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who are best known for action comedy films such as The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street. With work on Star Wars characters already featured in a cameo in The Lego Movie, and many successfully entertaining films already under their belts, it seems that the force will be strong with these two. The Han Solo Anthology film is set to be released on May 25, 2018.
