EW has just reported the Chuck Wendig will write the two books following Star Wars: Aftermath in a trilogy. The books will help stitch together Return of the Jedi to The Force Awakens. It seems like it will be the biggest new addition to the literary side of continuity when the first book gets released September fourth.
Heroic Hollywood has just announced that they got wind that at the Star Wars panel at SDCC, Colin Trevorrow will be brought on stage and announced as the director for Star WarsEpisode Nine. Trevorrow previously directed Jurassic World.
Starwars.com just dropped that Christopher Miller and Phil Lord have the bridge on a new Han Solo Anthology film. The dynamic duo of Miller and Lord have worked on films like Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs. The screenplay will be written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan. The movie will provide Han Solo’ backstory as to how he became a smuggler. This topic provides a lot of different angles to take, and should provide the filmmakers with the position to put out a quality film.
