In this episode of Star Wars Time I had to fly solo, and not the Han type. My co-host Nick was out of town, so I fired up my mic to talk about two pretty important news items from the Star Wars universe that came out last week, because they were just too time sensitive to wait for Nick to come back to Earth.
Anyway, the first topic stems from an interview with Alden Ehrenreich in which he may have let slip that he’s officially signed on to play the young Han Solo in at least two more projects. We know he’s in Solo: A Star Wars Story, so if he wasn’t just messing with the reporter, what other movies could he be talking about? I go into the thought of a Han trilogy, or possibly having Han show up in other stand alone films, such as the Kenobi standalone, but that would present its own sort of canon issues, so I don’t really know what else he could be referring to. If they are going with a Solo trilogy we all better hope that Solo is awesome, because we may be getting more of Alden as Han than we ever expected.
I also touch on the Star Wars Resistance announcement, which came from Disney and Lucasfilm last week. It will be an anime show helmed by David Filoni, and it will air this fall on the Disney Channel. It will take place before The Force Awakens, and it will follow a young Resistance pilot who spies on the First Order’s growing war machine.
