Not only will you be doing a good deed today, but you'll also be entered to win a trip to the set of the Young Han Solo movie.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy reassured "Star Wars" fans that Han Solo is indeed the real name of the beloved character made famous by Harrison Ford - weeks after Disney CEO Bob Iger cryptically suggested his true moniker could be something else. (Some things just seem right.) What would we see then?
Speaking to MTV, she didn't commit to a timetable, but said, "My hope would be sometime around the summer".
Production for Phil Lord and Chris Miller's Han Solo movie is now underway, and thanks to Lucasfilm's Force for Change charity drive, fans can win an exclusive tour of the set. At this stage, it doesn't sound like LucasFilm have a clear map on where they'll go next with Episode X - or at least not one they're willing to share yet. It's also a self-contained way of capturing an audience for more than one movie, so it'd be pretty odd for them to drop it (unless it was for a more expansive MCU-style universe of stories).
Directed by The Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the Han Solo standalone movie spans a seven-year period covering the smuggler's life from ages 18-24 and explains how he met his Wookiee co-pilot, Chewbacca. He says, "There's lots of twists and turns, and I really want people to experience those when they see the movie for the first time". There's more to Han Solo's name, but it's not that it's not his name.
