You love him. He knows.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has officially confirmed that a standalone Han Solo film is slated for May 2018. The announcement was made during the Walt Disney earnings call Wednesday morning.

“This is the first of a set of planned stand-alone stories,” Iger said of Rogue One, which will complete principal photography very soon. “We’re already in pre-production on our next one, for release in May of 2018.”

We all know that release dates can change in an instant, so stay glued to Inside The Magic for updates and exclusives. In the meantime, what would you like to see in a Han Solo movie? Do you want to see how Han meets Chewie? How about the infamous Kessel Run? Sound off in the comments below!

    How about giving it back to George Lucas and don’t mess it up. Seriously with the force awakens- really?! Boo hiss.
    Who’s playing Han? Ford may be able to do the older Han as a reflective thing back to his younger years but seriously, don’t mess this one up with some half wit. Get the Disney feel out of it. That is not what people want from Star Wars.
    And while I’m on it- could you have made a more whiny wishy washy character with Rey?! Seriously? Send her off to Hoth and leave her there with a snow beast. Ugh.

      So what we should have Lucas take us back to the horrible pre equal trilogy? Hell no this movie rocked. More practical effects rather then computer that will be outdated in 5 years.

      No stupid talk talk talk talk and oh my gosh thank God no hayden Christinson. I mean the pre trilogy messed up everything and then Georges edit after edit after edit of the original was getting old.

    2. YES!!! Completely agree..!

  2. The Han Solo film was officially confirmed by Lucasfilm on July 7, 2015. In that press release, the release date was noted as May 25, 2018. Maybe Bob and/or the board members don’t visit starwars.com?

    I’m excited! They have to bring back Jaba! The kessel run would be really cool.
