Han Solo to get his own movie
Han Solo is going to have some of the spotlight soon.
With his roguish charm, the gallant scoundrel Han Solo has long been one of the favorite characters in the “Star Wars” universe.
Now fans will finally get to learn the smuggler-turned-hero’s backstory.
Disney announced today that a movie about Han Solo’s life is in the works. It will be directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, the two behind “The Lego Movie”.
The movie is expected to be released in 2018.
No title and no casting (Chris Pratt??? Aaron Paul???) announced just yet.
The film will be written by Lawrence Kasdan and his son, Jon Kasdan. Lawrence co-wrote “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” in addition to J.J. Abrams’ upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” due out this December.
