Following Disney’s confirmation that stand-alone Star Wars character movies are in development, Entertainment Weekly suggests that Han Solo will be among those to get his own film (along with Boba Fett and Yoda):

“The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars”

How many times did I say this would work on The Sci-Fi Cast? Countless! There’s so much story there: Han’s adventures as an illegal space smugger, Han meets Chewie, Han wins the Flacon from Lando in a bet, Han is forced from Cloud City, Han runs afoul of the gangster Jabba the Hutt and is on the run from bounty hunters…on and on. The movie ends with Chewie and Han wandering into the Mos Eisley cantina…

Boy, I hope this happens. It could be fantastic.
