10 Things We Want To See In A Han Solo Star Wars Movie
The origin story of the galaxy's favorite scoundrel could be in the works. So long as his Wookiee mother and Rebel girlfriend are involved, we're totally on board.
The geekosphere has been in meltdown today ever since Entertainment Weekly broke the news that beloved Star Wars character Han Solo could be getting his own stand-alone spin-off prequel film (a stand-off-quel? A pre-spin-alone? A pre-stand-spin-alone-off-quel?). A stand-alone film about Boba Fett is also on the drawing board, but since George Lucas' prequel trilogy took care of dramatizing that character's backstory, the infamous bounty hunter's spin-off flick would reportedly take place somewhere in between Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back, or Empire and Star Wars: Episode VI — Return of the Jedi.
Solo's origin story, however, has yet to be told on the big screen. His film would reportedly be set between Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, allowing for roughly 18 years of his life to explore. If the filmmakers choose to follow the Star Wars canon already set down in a series of novels, comics, and other official material known as the Extended Universe, there is a wealth of rich material on how Han Solo came to be in that fateful Mos Eisley cantina. Here's what we'd most want to see. (Warning: Potential MAJOR SPOILERS follow.)
