Han Solo was first made famous by “Blade Runner” actor Harrison Ford in 1977 and the film will focus on the origin story of Han Solo and his best friend, Chewbacca (aka Chewie), before he met Luke Skywalker (played by Mark Hamill) and Princess Leia (played by Carrie Fisher). The screen play for the upcoming film will be written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan, with “22 Jump Street” directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, attached to direct.
