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.
