“Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous,” directors Phil Lord and Miller said. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”
The movie will examine the pair of Han Solo and Chewbacca’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early conflicts with that other card-playing rogue Lando Calrissian.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directing the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
Crewing the ship will be some of the industry’s top talent, including Academy Award nominee for his work on Arrival, Bradford Young (Director of Photography), Chris Dickens (Editor), Dominic Tuohy (SFX Supervisor), Rob Bredow (VFX Supervisor) and Brad Allan (Action Designer).
Han Solo Movie will debut in theaters on May 25, 2018.
