The Star Wars universe, like the actual universe, just keeps expanding. Since Disney bought the franchise and decided to add more to the world of George Lucas, the announcements just haven’t stopped coming. Will Yoda get a spin-off movie? What’s JJ Abrams got planned for Episode VII: The Force Awakens? Everyone seems to want another Star Wars TV series, possibly one involving Boba Fett. Well, another announcement has come along. Director duo Lord and Miller will be doing a solo movie: a Han Solo movie!
Said a release from the directors via Disney: “This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.”
Lord and Miller are an awesome team, and if anyone can make an awesome Han Solo movie, it’s those two. They’re the geniuses behind the wonderful Lego Movie and the hilarious/action-packed 21 Jump Street revival, among other great movies. I have no doubt this is going to be an awesome movie.
