Development

"It's certainly exciting as a filmmaker, the notion that we can explore these stories that genuinely have a beginning, middle and an end, and don't necessarily have to tie into something specific."
Kathleen Kennedy[src]

News that the Disney-Lucasfilm brand was developing several theatrical pictures separate from the core, episodic Star Wars saga was reported in 2013, with Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg slated to write their own individual spinoff films.[7] While director Gareth Edwards' then-untitled Rogue One: A Star Wars Story project was announced in 2014 as the first of these standalone features,[8] it was not until the following year on April 19 at Celebration Anaheim that the announcement was made that the spinoff films would collectively be known as the Star Wars Anthology Series.[1]

Josh Trank signed on to direct an Anthology film in 2014 but left the project after a year to pursue other opportunities.[9]

On July 7, 2015, Lawrence Kasdan's Anthology film was given a release date of May 25, 2018, with Christopher Miller and Phil Lord attached to direct, and Kasdan's son Jon Kasdan contributing to the script as well. The film will follow the story of a young Han Solo.[3] On June 20 2017, it was announced that Lord and Miller were stepping away from the project.[10] on June 22, it was announced Ron Howard would assume directorial duties on the film.[2]
