‘Star Wars’ News: Han Solo Movie Confirmed w/ Phil Lord & Chris Miller Directing

StarWars.com has confirmed that The Lego Movie and 21/22 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be directing a Star Wars Anthology film revolving around a young Han Solo! This is some news you would expect to hear at San Diego Comic Con, which is this weekend, but apparently Lucas Film couldn’t wait to drop this. I am super excited to hear this news and I couldn’t ask for a better director duo to take on the infamous smuggler of the Star Wars universe. Now let the madness begin about who will be playing the young Han!

Check out the official comment from Lord and Miller themselves:

“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.”

These guys are so awesome and I personally have loved their last three movies so them directing is fantastic news. As far as the Han Solo Anthology movie I’m not sure if I like the idea of it. Don’t get me wrong, it can be done right and I could love it but I honestly can’t imagine another actor playing Han Solo other than Harrison Ford. Regardless they’re going to make it so I have to accept it and if they get the right guy in the role then I’m all for it, especially with Lord and Miller directing.
