There are few things we all know for sure in life: Death, Taxes & the fact that we’re going to see a new Star Wars movie, every year, until an Asteroid strikes our planet. Rogue One was the testing grounds for Lucasfilm & Disney to see if they could make a Star Wars film that existed outside of the episodic ones. Considering Rogue One made 528 MILLION domestically and another 500+ million overseas, bringing their total to over a Billion dollars on a 200 million dollar budget, I’d say they succeeded.
But now what? Well we all know the episodic films are still on the way with The Last Jedi hitting theaters in December of this year; what other stories should be told? Lucasfilm & Disney seem to think the Anthology series is a good idea. Whispers of a Boba Fett movie, Yoda, Old Republic and the list goes on, fully speculation, one movie we DO know for sure is happening is: The Young Han Solo Movie. Everyone’s favorite Scruffy Nerfherder is getting his stand alone movie.. without Harrison Ford. That’s where Alden Ehrenreich comes in. A prequel/origin story about how Han Solo became Han Solo. Not much is known about the story. Will we see the Kessel run? How did he meet Lando (Donald Glover)? Or Chewie? So many questions left unanswered from the Original Trilogy!
While we still have a long time to wait to find out, especially considering there isn’t a release date attached to the film yet, it will all remain speculation and geek theories. But Official Star Wars/Disney/Lucasfilm did give us a bit of a tease yesterday when they gave us our first look at the cast together. Inside of a shiny new Millennium Falcon. With a very Harrison Ford looking Alden!!
CHECK IT OUT
All I know is: I can’t wait for this movie! Anything Star Wars, you can pretty much hook directly up to my veins. Will it be good? Who knows, but the hype train has left the station and I’ve purchased ALL of the tickets!
