Chris Miller and Phil Lord – of The LEGO Movie and the Jump Street movies fame – have signed on to direct a Han Solo Star Wars spin-off movie.
They will direct from a screenplay written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan and promise ‘to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us.’
The as yet untitled film focuses on ‘how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.’
For further details, follow the jump. The Han Solo movie is slated for an August 25, 2018 launch.

Oh my god, heck has frozen over! Star Wars will be available on Digital HD! Not in some far off Galaxy, but this Friday? Whaaaaa???? Today is the day for me to say “I Hate Myself.” I’m getting sucked into the dumb iWatch hype and now this? Maybe I do have more money than sense. I mean really, I already have these burned in Letterbox AND Full Screen HD, as well as the Han Shot First Bitches SD Version. But I want the official version and I love Disney’s Movies Anywhere, buy this once and it’ll be available across multiple platforms including UV with bonus material. This set will include most of the bonus content from the recent Blu-ray release and two new features. The bundle is available for pre-order on Vudu for $89. I don’t see the bundle listed on iTunes yet – just the individual titles for $19.99 each, but I’m sure it’ll be available as a iTunes bundle later today.
