‘Han Solo’ Begins Filming

1 min read

han-solo-logoThe Han Solo film is now officially filming as co-director Chris Miller has tweeted out that things began earlier today, providing two things for fans to enjoy. First, the working title for the film is Red Cup, one that we hope holds some blue milk in it, which is a fun play on the red Solo cups out there. The other is the play on the Han Shot First with First Han Shot that ties us back to the “proper” way many view the character before Lucas re-edited things in A New Hope years ago.

Directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson with a planned 2018 release.

Plot concept: This new film depicts Han in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.
