In the Han Solo origin film, a new report establishes that we’ll visit Han Solo’s homeworld of Corellia where the Millennium Falcon was built.
Hello, and welcome to another episode of Star Wars News That Isn’t The Last Jedi Trailer. While we all know that Lucasfilm won’t be releasing the trailer until likely next month, I get my hopes up every time I come across something. Instead of Star Wars: The Last Jedi news, today the internet offers an update on the Han Solo origin film due for release next year.
As you know, the film only recently began production. However, it looks like Phil Lord and Chris Miller want to get into the thick of it as soon as possible. New reports from La Provincia include photos from the set of the Jandia Natural Park in Spain. Further, they establish that this serves as the set of Corellia.
Now due to the debacle between canon and legends, Star Wars‘ databank only links Corellia to the Millennium Falcon.
"The Falcon looks like a worn-out junker, but beneath her hull she’s full of surprises. A succession of owners, from Lando Calrissian and Han Solo to Gannis Ducain, have made special modifications that boosted the freighter’s speed, shielding and firepower to impressive – and downright illegal – levels."
I said it before already, but this news really supports my theory. I think the Han Solo film will be equal parts a Millennium Falcon origin story. Like, that ship is the common thread between Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and even Rey from The Force Awakens. If you took the Millennium Falcon out of Star Wars, there’s really nothing left.
It would be perfectly okay if Star Wars featured less sandy, desert planets. I don’t have an Anakin-level version or anything. But let’s do like Rogue One and really mix it up in this origin film, too.
The Han Solo standalone hits theaters in 2018.
