Hmm, I wonder if this will be based on the Han Solo trilogy of books from way back?

Considering Episode 7 is based in no major way on any of the other well-received EU Star Wars books...

Wouldn't bet on it.

I love Star Wars, but the more I hear about these countless anthology films the more I begin to fear we're looking at another MCU and that scares the sh*t out of me.

Ugh. I don't want to see an origin story about Han Solo. I wish Lucasfilm would use these Anthology flicks to explore lesser known characters or eras not yet captured on film.

Lucasfilm? You mean Disney.

Once they cast a new Han solo you can bet they're going to look to cast a young Luke Skywalker and Leia as well. They're probably going to do something like the new Star Trek reboot cast from 2009.

I don't think they would ever dare to remake the classic trilogy, but if they're going to cast all new young actors for Luke, Han, Leia it might be possible to see a new movie set right after Episode 6 when they're not too old.

I'd love to see them do movie versions of the Heir tot he Empire trilogy THAT was an awesome book series! Plus, Mara Jade- how can you go wrong? I'd cast Scarlet Johansson, or maybe Jennifer Lawrence.

Why not? His book trilogy was one of the better series of SW novels, and goes into how he and Chewie met and became friends, among other things. There was also a series on Lando, too.

I hope it's not a River Phoenix, Last Crusade situation, because that was a little too cute. I didn't really need to see Indiana Jones as a boyscout with a lady's haircut, and I don't particularly want to see some tude-exuding youngster running around in Han Solo's vest.

Seems like this stuff is coming so fast. There's a lot to explore in Star Wars, but I don't see the rush. I don't have any particular fondness for Han Solo. I'm way more interested in Rogue One.

What if they were to cast someone like Chris Pratt as young Han Solo?

Pratt is 5 years older than Ford was when he shot ANH.

Han Solo was the most popular hero in the original trilogy.

Can someone please tell me all the current Star Wars projects that have been announced or confirmed existing as of this point? I feel like it's entirely impossible to keep up with any of this sh*t anymore.

Obviously have no clue what the dailies look like but what was KK expecting when she hired L&M? They've got a pretty distinct style. With all the firings and replacements it seems like KK needs to do better due diligence when hiring directors. Kudos to L&M for not letting KK give them the Gareth Edwards treatment where you assist another director that KK wants to reshoot half of your movie.

I don't like reading that she sided with her friend Kasdan because the directors wanted to tweak the script by having the actors improv some of the lines. Kasdan hasn't created anything worthwhile in a long time.

Filoni isn't going anywhere. He got promoted to Head of Animation recently.
