The Lego Movie‘s directors, Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, are to send the young Han Solo off for a series of adventures in a new, as yet untitled, Han Solo solo film which will be warping our way on May 25th 2018 (hope you forgive the punn-ishment – it was just too good).

Han Solo ... very solo, with new standalone young Han Solo movie.

A young me? Yipee!

Phil and Chris said, “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 film’s story will be penned by Jon ‘Dawson’s Creek’ Kasdan and his dad Lawrence ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ Kasdan, and tell us how young Han Solo grew up into a first-rate interstellar rascal!

“We’re so excited to be working with Chris and Phil, who will bring a fresh new dimension to the Star Wars universe,” said the Kasdans. “They’re two of the smartest, funniest and most original filmmakers around, and the ideal choice to tell the story of Han Solo, one of the coolest characters in the galaxy.”
