A few moments ago, an article was posted up on StarWars.com, which unveiled that the dynamic duo, Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, will direct a new Han Solo anthology film. Miller and Lord have showcased that they are some of the best directors in the business, as conveyed through their credits in blockbuster hits, such as The LEGO Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, along with both 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. Now, they get to add a highly anticipated Star Wars spin-off film to the mix too.

In collaboration with Miller and Lord, two distinguished writers have been appointed by LucasFilm. Lawrence Kasdan, best known for Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Big Chill and co-writer for the screenplays, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi & The Force Awakens has consented to working with the directors on this new film, along with his son, Jon Kasdan. Furthermore, Lawrence Kasdan will act as executive producer, as well as Jason McGatlin. Kathleen Kennedy and Will Allegra have also agreed to work in league with Kasdan and McGatlin, as producers of the film. Further to the press release, a brief synopsis of the film has been released:

The story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the Cantina at Mos Eisely.

The film’s release date has been scheduled for May 25, 2018.
