I am excited to hear that the new (and still untitled) Han Solo Star Wars Story has officially begun filming! The film is slated to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
Han Solo has always been my favorite, and I am excited we will get to learn about his life before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope. The movie will cover his adventures with Chewbacca including their early encounters with Lando Calrissian.
The movie is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, 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. Clearly the Force is strong with this cast!
It should be amazing, and hopefully more details and footage will be out later this year.
