The Han Solo prequel film is officially in production! The production got underway this morning with director Phil Lord’s tweet that reads simply
“Han first shot”.
This is a clever pun on the who shot first debate from the original Star Wars. Any real fan knows that Han shot first! At any rate, he sent along a picture with the tweet of the clapboard featuring the temp title “Star Wars: Red Cup”.
We don’t know much about the film other than that it will feature a more western approach to the storytelling and visuals. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han solo along with recently announced Woody Harrelson as a mentor and previously announced Donald Glover stepping into the young Lando Calrissian role. Game of Thrones alum Emilia Clarke has been cast in an unannounced role.
Oh and according to Zach Martin’s research here at CultureSmash the film is being shot in 6K. So we better get that 4K master!
Be patient, we aren’t getting this one til next year!
