Filming starts on Han Solo movie

January 31st, 2017 by bash Comments

Filming has started on the forthcoming Han Solo movie.

Co-director Chris Miller tweeted the above image with a play on words all fans of Star Wars agree with…. Han Shot First. In this instance it’s Han First Shot.

The movie’s working title, Star Wars: Red Cup follows in the tradition of strange titles for other Star Wars films during production with Episode VIII going by the name Space Bear.

Alden Ehrenreich will play our famous smuggler with Donald Glover starring as  Lando Calrissian and Woody Harrelson playing Solo’s mentor.

The next Star Wars movie is The Last Jedi, which comes to cinemas everywhere in December.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
