Filming Begins on Han Solo Star Wars Story

Here’s another one I missed while under the weather. From StarWars.com:

Cameras are rolling on the adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee; principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20 at Pinewood Studios, London.

The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.

How exciting! I love how all these spin-offs are exploring backstory we’d never known before. Together with the announcement was the first cast photo too.
