‘Star Wars’: Han Solo Movie ‘In Very Capable Hands,’ Says Woody Harrelson

Han SoloFollowing the much-talked about shift in director from Phil Lord and Chris Miller to Ron Howard on the Untitled Han Solo Movie, many have wondered whether or not the film might be in trouble. Not according to one cast member. Speaking to Uproxx, Woody Harrelson had the following positive comments regarding the change:

“Oh, you can relax, man — because obviously the Force is with us.”

“Ron is great,” Harrelson said. “He’s awesome. He’s such a gentleman and so prepared.”

“And I loved Chris and Phil,” he added. “But I think we did land in very capable hands.”

Woody Harrelson is currently doing press for War for the Planet of the Apes, which will be released on July 14. Perhaps between now and the D23 Expo, we might learn more about Harrelson’s mysterious connection to the famous young smuggler in his next film.

The D23 Expo runs from July 14–16 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

The Untitled Han Solo Movie has been written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo, with Joonas Suotomo as Chewbacca and Donald Glover as young Lando Calrissian. The cast also includes Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams, and Ian Kenny.

The Untitled Han Solo Movie is currently slated for release on May 25, 2018.

8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See

Star Wars-SagaMay the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.

Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.

Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
