Disney has tapped The LEGO Movie duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, to direct the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars spinoff film.

Set for release on 25th May 2018, the film will focus on Solo’s days before he became a part of the rebel alliance.

The Empire Strike Back and Return Of The Jedi Writer, Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan will pen the script. Lawrence Kasdan is also the executive producer of the feature, along with Jason McGatlin.

Speaking with Deadline on the upcoming film, Lord and Miller stated: “This is the first film we’ve worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with. We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us.

"This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.”
