A ‘Han Solo’ Origins Movie | Are you prepared?

Posted February 7, 2013 by Johnny2x in Entertainment


We are hearing a lot of rumors surrounding just what Disney plans on doing with the Star Wars franchise. A great one that thankfully turned out to be true was JJ Abrams directing the first one.

Now what we are hearing are rumors on what the movie will be about. Disney has seemed to confirm that they will be stand alone movies rather then a new trilogy. The first release maybe a Yoda movie.

Now we are hearing that one possibility is a Han Solo “origins” movie. I fucking LOVE this idea. I would be super curious who would be playing a young Han Solo. Maybe me???

Entertainment Weekly has learned details on two of the spin-off projects: A young Han Solo saga, focusing on the wisecracking smuggler’s origin story, and a bounty hunter adventure with Boba Fett at the center of a rogue’s gallery of galactic scum. Sources close to the projects confirmed this was the direction the development was taking, although they cautioned it’s still very early in the process.

The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars (now known as A New Hope)

,…so although it’s possible Harrison Ford could appear as a framing device, the movie would require a new actor for the lead — one presumably much younger than even the 35-year-old Ford when he appeared in the 1977 original.

The Boba Fett film would take place either between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, or between Empire and Jedi, where the bounty hunter was last seen plunging unceremoniously into a sarlacc pit. Exactly who would play him isn’t much of a complication – in the original trilogy, he never took off his helmet. And in the prequels, we learned he was the son of the original stormtrooper clone, played by Temuera Morrison, who’s still the right age for the part if his services were required.
