Han Solo confirmed to be the focus of the SECOND Star Wars Anthology film

More on Star Wars


Disney have now confirmed via the official Star Wars website that Han Solo will be the focus of the second Star Wars Anthology movie. They will direct the film that will be written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.


As some had hoped, the second Star Wars Anthology film will focus on Han Solo's earlier years. Not only that, the film will be directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord whose previous films include last year's massive hit The LEGO Movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miller and Lord will write, produce AND direct the fourth Disney Star Wars film which is due in cinemas in 2018.

We're waiting for official confirmation - neither Lucasfilm or Disney are commenting on the news at the moment but we expect this to be THE big announcement over the San Diego Comic Con later this week.

An interesting point to note is that this film probably ISN'T the one that Josh Trank was working on - indeed that project is still in search of a director to pick up the reigns since Trank stepped down earlier this year.

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
