Disney’s Han Solo spin-off, Solo: A Star Wars Story, will focus on Solo’s days before he linked up with the rebel alliance, as well as his early adventures with Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian.

Solo: A Star Wars Story was co-directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (duo behind The Lego Movie), but 6 months into production, Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, fired the directing duo

over “creative differences.” In turn, Kennedy nabbed high profile director Ron Howard (Apollo 13) to complete the film.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Star Wars: Episode V-VII) and Jon Kasdan (In the Land of Women).

Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) is playing the young, sarcastic, reckless smuggler made famous by Harrison Ford. Donald Glover (The Martian) is portraying a young Lando Calrissian, previously played by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Additional cast members include Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Woody Harrelson (Natural Born Killers), Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible 2), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Man Up) and Joonas Suotamo.

Despite its turbulence, Solo: A Star Wars Story still has a scheduled release for May 25th, 2018. Watch the film’s 1st Full Teaser Trailer below:

    That’s pretty much perfect.

    Glover still needs that one big breakthrough role. He’s insanely talented, as any COMMUNITY fan will tell you.

    Maybe they can consider this guy, too? 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NATeU-r0GDU

    Wow. This looks to be to the Star Wars franchise what ‘Showdown in Manila’ is to Mark Dacascos’ filmography.

      Not sure about the choice of actor for Han Solo. Dont feel the need to see this, becuase I’d honestly prefer to leave Han Solo’s past as a mystery. Some characters work better, if you don’t know their whole story. Then again Disney already ruined the character, by killing him off in the lamest way.

      I was hoping we would get an origin story for the Rancor Keeper in Return Of The Jedi. Just how the hell did he get that creature into the cave?. By the time Disney squeezed the SW sponge dry, there’ll be origins movies or T.V shows, for every creature/character in the Mos Esiley Cantina.

    I wasn’t interested in a Han Solo movie, but the cast does look good. Alden Erenreich was fantastic in Hail Caesar, and was good in Rules Don’t Apply, so I can see him as Solo.

    I just hope the behind the scenes turmoil didn’t ruin the film.
