LEGO Movie directors on board for a young Han Solo film


The second Anthology film will feature a young Han Solo film, and The LEGO Movie’s Christopher Miller and Phil Lord are at the helm, announced today.

The screenplay, by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, focuses on how Han Solo became “the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina.” The film is set for a May 25, 2018 release.

I’d say to gird yourself for the casting speculation, but we already know how that goes…

According to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news just before LFL did, the Han Solo film is not the one that Josh Trank was working on, though obviously it’s occupying the same slot now. That film was rumored (though never confirmed) to be about Boba Fett.

  1. I’ve been very skeptical about the idea that we need more Star Wars prequels but I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt since Kasdan is attached to it.

    Looking forward to young Han and Chewie singing “Everything is Wizard.”

  2. Everything is AWESOME about this!!! LEGO Movie directors (who directed Han Solo in that film) with the screenwriter of Raiders and Empire. I’m thinking they go younger than Chris Pratt, likely early 20s. Maybe Anthony Ingruber since he looks like a young Ford, does a spot on impression of him (I believe he just played a younger version of a Ford character in a recent film with Ford, too.) Plus he’s worked for Disney before.
