**** why do a Han Solo movie, do something else. The Star Wars universe is so damn rich.

Because Han Solo is a great character who is very popular. Plus it will allow them to explore the SW underworld. Something which has a ton of potential and will be "new" for most viewers.

It was never official that they were directing. They are developing the story, though.

So is Kenobi. So is Yoda. If they're giving Han Solo is own movie, then they should get around to these 2 as well. Since clearly they're not interested in giving us something completely new and fresh.

We've never had a SW film about the Underworld. We've had 5 about the Jedi...
A Han Solo film will be very "new and fresh" for the GA.

We've had 3 films with Han Solo. And the whole Jabba part of ROTJ was exploring the underworld.

So would a Darth Maul film stick out tongue


In fact so would a Yoda film. Jedi are not all exactly the same. Yoda's certainly a very different Jedi to Luke Skywalker.

I kind of don't want to see another actor assume Harrison Ford's iconic Han Solo role though. Sure make a Star Wars movie about the crime rife underbelly or whatever, just do so with new characters. Or even harken back to kotor and do a crime film around Carth Onassi. There are so many other options is all

We've had 4 films about Kenobi and 5 about Yoda then. no expression

My point was a film about the SW underworld and how smugglers operate would be very unique whereas a film about a Jedi is something we've seen many times.

And yes, I'd be up for a Yoda film if it explores a new era.

That type of film can easily be done with new characters. And the movie wouldn't need a character like Han Solo to sell itself as Star Wars is a big enough name.

I can definitely understand not wanting to see a recast Han Solo. It's my biggest worry.

Chris Pratt could play Han, Chewbacca AND Leia, and it would be amazing.

That said, I don't know why they'd make a Han Solo film where Han Solo most definitely doesn't resemble Harrison Ford.

They might take a page out of Terminator. Where they decided Kyle Reese doesn't need to look or act like the original.

Hey, DC fanboys should be used to this. They run around and excitedly start threads about movie projects that end up not happening all the time. stick out tongue Only a tiny percentage of the films |DC & Warners 'announce' ever get to the big screen.

They're still writing the story. Unless WB scraps it.

As funny as Chris Pratt is, he's just not the right guy.

He'd be better for the Indiana Jones replacement when it happen's.

I thought they're looking for a young Han Solo. As in Pre-OT. If that's the case Chris Pratt would be too old anyway.

Although it would be nice if they got the same actor to play Indiana Jones and Han Solo again.

Chris Pratt is already playing a Han Solo type in Peter Quill.

If this is prequel fare, then they need someone to play Han in his mid 20's, not 30's.
