Just ahead of San Diego Comic-Con opening this week, Disney announced that they are developing a Star Wars spin-off movie around everyone’s favorite smuggler, Han Solo.
The film is set to be an origin story for the character and the part will be re-cast as someone significantly younger, while Harrison Ford is portraying the character in the newest main trilogy. The first installment of the new trilogy, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, is set to hit theaters December 18, 2015.
This is the second confirmed Star Wars Anthology film. Rogue One, the first film in the spin-offs, is due out December 16, 2016.
The Han Solo film has been given a May 25, 2018 release date, which likely means that directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will be dropping out of the Warner Bros. Justice League prequel, The Flash.
