Filming Takes Place in London
The string of Star Wars news continues as we now know where and when the Halo Solo anthology film will commence production. A recent update to a post on casting site myentertainmentworld.com lists the shoot date as Late January, 2017. In keeping with tradition the film will also be shooting in London, England as the majority of films in the franchise have.
The posting also lists the first (undoubtedly vague) look at the films plot.
“The film is about how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley”
The film will star Alden Ehrenreich in the title role along with Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Emilia Clarke in an unannounced role. Directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller based on a script by Lawrence & Jon Kasdan.
The film is currently scheduled for release on May 25th, 2018
