According to boss of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, the upcoming Han Solo standalone film will be taking on a Western style - more than appropriate for the dashing space rogue.
In an interview with Variety, Kennedy discussed the film and how it would be taking a different direction to Rogue One and the films of the current Star Wars saga. She said, “There are other stories that we can tell in that same transportive and transcendent spirit. Going forward, you’re going to see movies that shift tonally, some that are grittier and tougher, and some more comedic in nature.”
"This moves closer to a heist or Western type feel. We’ve talked about Frederic Remington and those primary colors that are used in his paintings defining the look and feel of the film."
Regarding Rogue One, Kennedy confirmed the rumour that the film will not be using the iconic Star Wars title crawls: “We felt that’s so indicative of what those saga films are. Initially, we probably will begin the film in a way that is traditional, with just the title."
We will get to see the Han Solo standalone, which will be by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, in UK cinemas on 25 May 2018. Meanwhile, you'll be able to catch Rogue One very soon on 15 December.
