Report: 'Han Solo' Trilogy In the Works with Star Alden Ehrenreich

A new report suggests that there are two more "Han Solo" films on the way after the first one, a prequel, starring Alden Ehrenreich ("Hail, Caesar!").

According to The New York Daily News (via SuperHeroHype), Ehrenreich has a three-picture deal with Disney and Lucasfilm. The site notes, "There is a real sense of excitement around the Han Solo movie and its potential. Given that Han’s early adventures do not need to be tied to the Empire, it leaves story lines open with the opportunity to really give fans something different. They can explore new galaxies and crazy creatures and bring in a wide array of new characters."

The "Han Solo" Star Wars anthology film is set to follow Solo's days before he became the smuggler we were introduced to in the original "Star Wars." Chewbacca has been confirmed to play a role in the film.

Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the "Han Solo" film hits theaters on May 25, 2018.
