New Details on Upcoming Star Wars Films From Disney CEO Bob Iger

We’ve got some new information, courtesy of Disney CEO Bob Iger, that gives us a bit more context for 2018’s Han Solo stand-alone film, as well as a bit of additional confirmation concerning The Last Jedi and our dear departed “Her Worshipfulness”. Read on for details…

 

 

Speaking at a USC tech conference today, Bob Iger (who, incidentally, has just signed an extended contract with Disney through July of 2019) shared a few tidbits about both this year’s The Last Jedi and next year’s as-yet untitled Han Solo stand-alone film. Details on this come to us via Variety.com.

 

First, Iger provided confirmation of an earlier statement from Lucasfilm concerning possible changes to The Last Jedi in the wake of Carrie Fisher’s tragic and unexpected passing in December.

 

“We are not changing ‘8’ to deal with her passing. Her performance remains as it was in ‘8,’” he said. “In ‘Rogue One’, we created digitally a few characters… We’re not doing that with Carrie.”

 

 

The Variety article also touched upon Lucasfilm’s plans for the Star Wars franchise following the 2019 release of Episode IX.

 

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm, it originally envisioned three new “Star Wars” films. But the company’s creative team is now working on “Star Wars” stories that will go well beyond Episode 9, he said. The team is thinking about “what could be another decade and a half of ‘Star Wars’ stories,” he said.

 

Perhaps the most substantial information conveyed today by Iger, however concerns the Han Solo movie, scheduled for release in 2018. Despite last month’s casting announcement, details about what the Han Solo film will actually be about remain few and far between. Donald Glover’s casting as Lando Calrissian has led many fans to speculate that we may see how Han managed to get hold of the Millennium Falcon, for example, but we’ve really had little verifiable fact to support any of these rumors.

 

Well, now we do.

 

Iger also revealed that the next film, a standalone project on Han Solo, will follow his life from the age of 18 through 24. The film will including “acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookie,” he said. “You’ll also discover how he got his name.”

 

None of this is terribly surprising, of course. I think most of us expected this to be a fairly straightforward origin movie, and it appears as though it will go more or less by the numbers. Meeting Chewie? Check. Taking possession of the Millennium Falcon? Check. Building his reputation as one of the galaxy’s hottest smugglers? Check. Acquiring his nom de contrebande? Check.

 

We don’t know, of course, exactly how any of these things occur, or whether they will follow any of the previously told versions of Han’s story, now relegated to “Legends” status in the wake of the new canon shift from a few years back. Will we see Han as an Imperial cadet who rescues Chewie from the Empire at the expense of his military career? Will we get a classic gambling scene in which Han skunks Lando out of the keys to the Falcon in a sabacc game? Will we see the infamous Kessel Run and why it was measured in parsecs? All of that remains to be seen.

 

 

 

But we now know that we’ll be getting a story that includes, at least in a general sense, a number of the key events in Han’s life that we expected to see.

 

The news, however, probably does little to ease the nagging sense of doubt that many Star Wars fans, myself included, cannot quite shake when it comes to the idea of a Han Solo origin movie. The Solo character, after all, has always had the benefit of a mysterious past, leaving it to the fans to fill in Han’s backstory on their own – or, if they prefer, to not bother with the backstory at all.

 

It’s a bit like the prospect of a movie about a post-adolescent version of Clint Eastwood’s “man with no name” from the spaghetti westerns. Yes, it could turn out to be a decent movie, but it also runs a very large risk of demystifying the character in a way that diminishes his classic persona.

 

We will undoubtedly learn more about the Han Solo origin movie over the coming months, but until then most of it remains in the realm of speculation. Many fans’ imaginations are undoubtedly working overtime, coming up with possible scenarios in which we might see our favorite smuggler come Memorial Day weekend of 2018. Let me leave you with an idea of my own.

 

From what I’ve seen here on the SWNN blog and in our Cantina forum, a significant segment of the Star Wars fan base (and I include myself in this) has a real problem with the notion of Han Solo being played not just by another actor, but by an actor as different from Harrison Ford as Alden Ehrenreich is. The objection there, at least from my own perspective, seems to have nothing to do with Ehrenreich’s acting chops and everything to do with the fact that after almost 40 years, Han Solo the character has become nigh on inseparable from Harrison Ford the actor. It’s a testament to what Ford brought to the role that, to many fans, Han Solo IS Harrison Ford. So, how do you get around something like this?

 

 

How about by having Harrison Ford narrate the movie as Han Solo, telling his life story?

 

It’s an idea that has been bouncing around in my head for awhile now, and one that I haven’t taken particularly seriously (not that I take ANY of my thoughts terribly seriously to begin with, mind you.) But with Iger’s confirmation that the Han Solo movie will cover a six-year stretch of Han’s formative years… having Harrison narrating the movie as an older Han actually begins to sound like an idea that would not only add a fun dimension to the story, but that would also help give fans’ suspension of disbelief a nice little boost as they try to see Ehrenreich as Han Solo, rather than as just another guy with a black vest and a cocky grin.

 

Again, this is merely a speculative idea and shouldn’t be taken as anything more than that. Neither I nor anyone else here at SWNN has any inside information that anything like this is actually being considered for the movie. But… it might be a cool little way of tying the new film to the classic Han character that’s so inseparably tied to Harrison Ford’s characterization.

 

We’ll see what happens in just a little more than 14 months!

      I like this idea. Perhaps aboard the Falcon while they were traveling in hyperspace from Jakku to Takodana? Would’ve had to be a long trip, though, if he is to tell his whole life’s story. lol

        Well as we all know, even Lucasfilm’s new story group refuses to explain exactly how long it takes to get anywhere in hyperspace.

        That way they don’t have to worry about counting the time characters are traveling during a movie.

      I’m honestly not sure whether Iger meant that to be taken at face value, or if he was referring to Han developing his reputation.

      However, I’ve long suspected that “Han Solo” could be a name that he took on later, rather than the name he was born under. It is, after all, ridiculously on-the-nose in terms of who Han was when we first met him in ANH. So, my immediate take was that Iger meant exactly what he said.

      I obviously don’t know for sure.

        How is it so on the nose for Han in ANH? He was tied at the hip with Chewie. He was never solo in that movie.

        • March 24, 2017 at 2:37 am
          Permalink

          He was an independent operator who pointed out time and again that he was in it for the money, not your Rebellion, Princess.

          Also, Chewie wasn’t his partner, Chewie was his side kick. Han called the shots. He was in charge of his two man crew, and he answered to no one.

          He rode solo.

          • March 24, 2017 at 2:54 pm
            Permalink

            He had a rebellious, anti-authority attitude and did what he wanted, but he was never “solo”. By “solo”, I picture a true loner, someone who doesn’t want to be around other people and operates alone. Han was never this in the movies. He was always very close with Chewie, and was in a relationship with Leia in the second and third movies.

            Just a difference of way we view things.

        • March 24, 2017 at 5:31 pm
          Permalink

          Yeah, and Chewie went wherever he went. Han was beholden to nobody but himself in terms of who he answered to. He made a deliberate point of being part of nothing bigger than himself, except for just long enough to make some money off of Jabba or whoever. He even said flat-out in ANH, “I take orders from just one person – ME!”

          He had a sidekick/copilot who stuck by him, yes, but his entire identity was wrapped up in being an independent operator. The guy’s name was almost literally “John Solo”, for cryin’ out loud.

          And that’s a big part of why the audience was practically on their feet when he came swooping down out of the sun and saved Luke’s bacon at the end of ANH. It was as much about Han turning around and putting his ass on the line for something more than himself and Chewie as it was about Luke blowing up the Death Star.

    What about the film starting off
    with a young Ben Solo asking Han “Dad how did you and Chewie meet?” or something to that effect? Han then lifts Ben up to his lap and says ” son, have I got a story to tell you.” Then Han narrates the story of his life like he’s telling the story to Ben. We get to see Harrison as Han again, plus we get a scene with Han and Ben to help make the scene in TFA even more impactful.

      That would be interesting indeed. Especially with the standalones doing their own thing to make them unique i could definitely see a little scene in the beginning with Han and Ben or something and then into telling the story. The narration aspect is something i never even considered and now that i’m mulling it around in the ol’ noggin it kinda makes sense. I know i had a hard time accepting rogue one when it was first talked around and i ended up loving it, but theres something about this Han movie that is…idk…really hard to just accept. That narration and maybe opening scene with Harrison would really do something to put my mind into the story correctly without it immediately going, “NO, NO, That is NOT Han Solo”

        My sentiments, exactly. I’ll probably won’t see the Han Solo movie. But it helps that I am not the biggest Han Solo fans. As to whether or not disney will milk this franchise remains to be seen. My hope is that the future movies will be good.

        As for the future, it is too early to say. My hope is that the Skywalker Saga is finished. I always appreciated the six movies on a thematic level. The PT was Anakin’s fall; the OT was Luke’s success and Anakin’s redemption. If there is one thing, I want LucasFilm to borrow from Legends is to go bold and get creative. Not- post ROTJ levels, but really branch outside the Skywalkers. It’s a rich enough franchise to do so. 🙂

    As much as I love Star Wars, if we get a movie a year for 15 years, and we’re into a fourth or fifth trilogy I think it’s almost certain to lose a lot of credibility. If they stick to anthology movies after this trilogy, it might be about feasible. But there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Especially if ticket sales drop due to over saturation, they’ll start cutting corners with star wars movies or trying to ‘reinvigorate’ it by doing a reboot of the entire franchise with Michael Bay at the helm.

      I feel between the episode 7-9 triology and the episodes 10-12 triology, they should have a an alternative triology (say Old republic triology, obi wan triology etc). That would give say 6 years before we return to Rey, Finn etc.

      Additionally they should keep doing the anthology films every alternative year. (eg 9, anthology, Oldrepublic1, anthology, Old republic 2, anthology, Old republic 3, Antology, Episode 10).

      Personally I believe they are going to start having two films a year, one in May and the other in December. Theyve proven this is a sufficient with superhero films (the mcu is releasing 3 a year now).

    This movie has been al along a very bold move from Disney. Han Solo equals Harrison Ford, so any other actor playing this charecter will always face huge critiques from fans.
    I would have liked better a movie about the underworld of the galaxy during the age of the Empire, in which we saw several story arcs featuring some of the most beloved and known bounty hunters, such as Boba Fett, Dengar, Bossk, and so on. AND, cameos from Han Solo, Jabba, as part of the story, but not about just Han.
    I have hopes for this type of story to come to life either as a live action TV series or animated series/feature film.
    But a movie around Han Solo only is both very interesting and yet very risky.
    We’ll have to wait and see how it goes. But nevertheless, it will face hard criticism no matter how good it ends up being.

    Well, so much for Kasdan’s remarks about it being it’s own thing and an original story, a moment of his life. Instead going by a checklist sort of movie.

    Maybe one of the special features on the home release will be the option to have a register sound every time one of those scenes has played out on screen.

    With the cast and crew involved I had gotten my hopes up, however learning it will definitely be a paint by numbers movie kind of ruins it for me. As the article stated, it’s going to demystify a lot about the character, not in a good way.

            Two…one for sure. The other is debatable. The stories in the new books and one film are pretty thin on story thus far. But at least in regards to the books, they are bringing back some of the better EU writers.

            Regardless of your opinion, general consensus and box office indicates it was a success, so they will keep on trucking.

            That’s bc the new books aren’t telling the same types of stories involving Han, Leia and Luke saving the galaxy every time.

            Box office doesn’t always mean it’s a great movie. But, yes me and many others are in the minority. Though I believe as time goes on, and the shine wears off…that TFA will come to be seen as a diminished SW in comparison to the other stories.

            I know that. That’s why I didn’t say it was a great movie. I said it was a success.

            Diminished in comparison to all but 3. 😉

            I can see where you are coming from. Personally, I won’t put Marvel in that boat, because really I am still enjoying it. But I can see where it could get stale.

            SWs, on the other hand; I am very nervous. I’ll admit; I enjoy the New canon, but TFA man what a letdown. I’m glad more people are realizing how much of a mess that movie was.

            And especially when I compare it to RO. I know some critics may compare it to the Phantom Menance syndrome, but I do not see it. Really, my hope is that TLJ will rectify this.

            And I trust Rian Johnson because I know he’s a phenomenal director. But again, I’m biased about him as a director. Really, my hope is that Abrams mystery box better be worth it.

            You need some canon novels in your life, and I don’t mean Aftermath.

            Lords of the Sith, Bloodline, Ahsoka, catalyst, Lost Stars

            read them all…Lost Stars was the best of those. Lords of the Sith next but not as good as everyone told me.

    If I can accept River Phoenix, Sean Patrick Flanery and George Hall as iterations of Indiana Jones then I can accept Alden Ehrenreich as a (slightly) younger Han Solo.

      Perhaps, we have to see him do it yet. Of course, after seeing Rogue one I guess there’s a slight possibility they might digitally splash a dose of Harrison Ford all over his face.

    All of us see Harrison Ford as the defining face of Han Solo, but we have to accept that other actor must be placed to interpret him in the character’s past.

    The need for the movie, I can only judge when I see it. I never thought of Solo as an misterious character, his charm comes from his manneirisms, cleverness, swagger etc. So, to know about the defining events of his past will not break the mystic of the character, only give context to his history. We could say the same thing (the context thing) for someone like, hum, Darth Vader…

    All I am saying is my personal point of view. I am not worried and have no doubt that there is a great movie coming. But anyone is free to think otherwise.

      I’ll admit; Han Solo was a character I never really cared for. Yeah, I know; I’m a terrible person, but as a child I always preferred Luke. Though, Harrison Ford iN ESB was great. Really, the closet thing to Han Solo I liked was A.C Cirspin(RIP) Han Solo book trilogy.

      I’ll say this; people who are Solo fans check it out. It is well written and really does do a lot with the character. Take my word, as someone who does not like Han Solo.

      I’m fine with the actor. My hope is that the movie will do its best to fit into what we know from Han in the OT. That is something those books did incredibly well, even for Legends standards.

    I’m skeptical as hell about this movie… but hey at least I’m going in with lowered expectations. If they pull this off… I’ll have to give Disney the benefit of the doubt forever going forward 😛

    Good post, I agree with most of your thoughts and I must admit that I like the idea of Harrison narrating. Let’s just hope this film doesn’t blow….like we fear it will.

    Good thing this website knows the alternative meaning of “getting his name”. Others are taking it as if Han Solo was not his real name all along.
