StarWars.com ha annunciato l'uscita nelle sale per il 2018 del secondo film della serie Star Wars Anthology, le pellicole tematiche su singole vicende e personaggi dell'universo di Guerre Stellari che verranno inaugurate a partire dal 2016 con Rogue One.
Il film, diretto da Chris Miller e Phil Lord, racconterà la genesi del più amato contrabbandiere della galassia, Han Solo.
"This is the first film we've worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with. We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us. This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you're late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all."
The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. Kathleen Kennedy, who will be producing, says she can't wait to discover what’s in store from these two extraordinary teams of directors and writers.
