hansoloIn  EW coverage about all things Star Wars, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy shared some tidbits about the Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Movie. One of the most important aspects the filmmakers have to consider is how much of the smuggler’s past they want to show. That seems to be the driving force behind the preliminary discussions at this point in the film’s development, according to Kennedy:

“There’s got to be a reason for [the stand-alone film] to be. And obviously the thing that Star Wars has always done so well is it doesn’t spend a lot of time [explaining] the stories that have come before. We don’t want to do that either. We don’t want to spend time going back and answering a lot of questions that, quite frankly, I don’t think people want answered.I think the key here is that we are identifying an event or events in Han Solo’s life that gives you some idea of who he is and why he is the character we have all known to love. “You can imagine, given who we’ve chosen to come in and direct, it should be very entertaining and funny. Han Solo is the character inside Star Wars that everybody knows has a wit and sense of humor. So that’s what this should be.”
