    If this is not the Trank film, it won't hit until 2020. So maybe they can still direct the Flash, but you never know.

    I like the directors, I like Han Solo, I will see the movie, but I don't want it. I know this has been rumored for a while, but I was hoping it wasn't true. It's not that I'm not interested in those stories, it's just that I don't want them recasting the big OT characters.

    Make an Obi-Wan movie were Ewan can still play him. Maybe a Boba Fett film. Or how about something that takes place long before the prequels, like the Old Republic.

    Oh well... it will be interesting to see who they cast.

    Ewan was a recast of a big OT character. Just saying. :funny:

    Sounds awesome. Throw in Lando, Boba, Greedo and Jabba please.

    True, but the age difference between the two versions was bigger than it will probably be now. I was also never really attached to Obi-Wan from the OT as a kid. Ewan and the prequels are what made me an Obi-Wan fan.

    Much more interesting than Boba Fett as the protagonist. :yay:

    Now let the casting debate begin.

    The creative team alone makes it worth the effort. Thank the Maker Trank went the way of the dodo.

    I was just thinking of River about 2 minutes ago!

    He was like 18 when Crusade started principal photography. That's a good age for Han's character. Maybe even younger.

    I'm wondering if we may get casting news at SDCC? The timing of this announcement seems a little too coincidental.

    Lucasfilm was going to announce this movie at SDCC, but THR scooped it.

    They gave a release date for it: May 25, 2018.

    Doubt they will have time for the Flash as well.

    Kennedy wasn't lying when she said they were going for the young creative talent. Damn, this is going to be amazing. It will be interesting to see who they cast.

    And with that date, I suspect this LFL moved this up the queue after Trank fell apart.

    Great choices for directors! Still not convinced of a Young Han movie... but I can't wait to be turned around. :D

    I said this in the other thread. But even though it is "Legends" now and won't be how this Han Solo story goes, I do recommend to read A.C. Crispin's Han Solo Trilogy. They came out in '97/'98. I think it shows the potential of things that Kasdan could tap into with a Younger Han story.
