The film will cover events in Han Solo’s life that took place prior to his appearance in 1977’s Star Wars, but no story details have been revealed. But before Disney’s 2012 purchase of Lucasfilm, the Star Wars Expanded Universe line of books and comics featured several novels about the scoundrel’s younger days. The Expanded Universe was officially de-canonized in 2014, but elements from it have been borrowed in the Star Wars universe’s new canon, notably with certain plot points in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s possible, then, that some of Solo’s previously established backstory might make its way back into the Star Wars mainstream.

The stand-alone Han Solo film, expected to be called Han Solo: A Star Wars Story in keeping with this year’s Rogue One, is in preproduction under directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Perhaps anticipating the confirmation of Ehrenreich’s casting, Miller commemorated this week’s “May the 4th” festivities by tweeting out the first official image from the production — Solo’s iconic blaster:

Maybe he'll be a good Han Solo. I still have the old Han Solo Trilogy of books in my head so it'll be a hard watch for me since all that canon will be thrown out the window.

      Comcast dropped it's bid for the Fox properties. Looks like Disney will get all their comic character licenses back at this rate.

      Looks like aliens are terraforming the planet and making monsters at the same time, which is a combination of awesome to me.
      Now for a brief rant.. The tv commercials were better than this trailer. In the commercials it looks like she is the pro going in to figure out wtf is going on, but in the trailer she's only going in to save her husband because Hollywood still doesn't think a female character can actually have professional motivation to do shit on their own without attaching a man to the woman's goals.

      I'm glad Wasp will finally get some screen time, Marvel needs more strong females in their movies.
