The confirmation comes from Disney CEO Bob Iger. While speaking at the Deutsche Bank 2016 Media, Internet & Telecom Conference, he referred to the film as “an origin story about Han Solo and Chewy,” according to The Wrap.
The script comes from Lawrence and Jake Kasdan and will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Beyond the Chewbacca detail, little else is known about the project. Back in the Expanded Universe, Chewbacca felt he owed a life debt to Han for saving him from Imperial detention. It is unclear if the film will follow up on this idea or introduce a completely new origin for their partnership.
The film is scheduled for release on May 25th, 2018.
