CHEWBACCA TO APPEAR IN HAN SOLO SPIN-OFF FILM

In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Disney have confirmed that Han Solo’s beloved hetero life mate Chewbacca will appear in the as yet untitled Star Wars anthology film.

This is of course the next project for directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who after successfully rebooting an old TV show and a children’s toy line for the big screen, are basically the only two people in the galaxy who might be able to make a young Han Solo film work. It also doesn’t hurt their cause when the guy who wrote The Empire Strikes Back is penning the screenplay.

The news of Chewie’s involvement in the story was provided by Disney head honcho Bob Iger, who recently broached the subject of the anthology films, saying…

“We have others in the works, including one, which is an origin story about Han Solo and Chewy. And that’ll come after ‘Star Wars 8’ in 2018. And then there will possibly more thereafter.”

It’s too early to tell just how big a role Chewbacca might have in the film as we still don’t even know who’ll be playing the title character, let alone what passage of time it will all take place. Personally, I’d like to see an Animal House style comedy set at smugglers college, where our main characters Han and Chewie start out as enemies but must learn to work together to defeat a rival fraternity, which would of course be run by Greedo. But hey, that’s just me.chewie-and-han

HAN SOLO: ORIGINS OF A SCRUFFY LOOKING NERF HERDER is released in May 2018
