During an interview with Variety, Disney’s Bob Iger dropped a few tidbits about the upcoming Han Solo movie, dealing with Carrie Fisher’s death, and what comes after Star Wars Episode 9.

Here is what we know from the very short article

  • There are no plans to alter Star Wars Episode 8 to deal with the passing of Carrie Fisher
  • There are no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher for Star Wars Episode 9
  • The Han Solo movie will follow the smuggler’s life from age 18 to 24, where he will meet Chewbacca and get control of the Millennium Falcon
  • We’ll also learn how Han Solo got his name

Iger also stressed that Disney and Lucasfilm are working on movies beyond Episode 9 that could appear in theaters for 15 years after Episode 9 is released.

As interested as I am in seeing Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, the talking points just aren’t doing it for me right now. We know Han got the Falcon from Lando, but do we really need to know how he met Chewbacca?

Disney and Lucasfilm have a year to convince me that it is a movie I must see.

  1. When the Marvel first started producing top-tier movies, I used to go to the theater to see every movie, but when a movie came out every year, I started skipping movies.
    I have a feeling it will be the same way with the Star Wars movies. It’s not to say that the movies aren’t great, but I have only so much money and time to spend at the cinema.
