Coming in 2018, the next Star Wars Story following Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One will be released, and it will feature everyone’s favorite scruffy, smuggling scoundrel Han Solo during his earlier years before we first meet him in the Mos Eisley Cantina in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. Many fans have been wondering what stories there must be told when it comes to the life of Young Solo and his Wookie companion Chewbacca. If Rogue One is being dubbed a “boots-on-the-ground” war film, what type of tone should be expected for this movie?
Veteran concept artist Iain McCaig, who is notable for his work in Episode(s) I, II, III and VII such as his designs for the characters Padme Amidala and Darth Maul claims to have read the script, which was written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan . If his words are any indication, there may be something special on the binary horizon.
By far the best Star Wars script, and one of the best scripts period, that I have ever read. I laughed, I cried, I did all the things you should do when reading a good script. You’re in for a treat.
McCaig’s sentiments on the film’s script is undoubtedly exciting. The blend of comedy and drama is essential to the identity of Star Wars and no character embodies that more than Han Solo. I gotta admit, when it comes to new Star Wars films, I can take or leave a Han Solo film, but because of the dynamic duo of Phil Lord & Christopher Miller at the helm, I could not help but become intrigued and excited at the prospect of the film. Also, even though it will be an uphill battle to follow Harrison Ford’s footsteps, I feel confident in Alden Ehrenreich’s talent that he will make the legendary role his own.
The untitled Han Solo film will come to a galaxy near you on May 25, 2018.
