After the huge success of the first Star Wars spinoff film, Rogue One, the internet is abuzz with speculation about the plot of the Han Solo spinoff, which is due for release in 2018.
All that is known is that it will be a Han Solo origin story, and it is also possible that it will be a trilogy rather than a stand alone movie. Lead actor, Alden Ehrenreich is reportedly contracted for three movies. There definitely is ample scope for compelling stories to be told across multiple films.
It could explore Solo's friendship with Lando Calrissian, who will be played by Donald Glover, and how he won the Millennium Falcon from him in a game of chance, or his association with Jabba the Hutt.
No doubt fans are also itching to see how he met Chewbacca, and rescued him from slavery, events that have been written about in Star Wars spinoff books. The pair formed a lifelong friendship that ended when Solo was killed in The Force Awakens.
These stories are probably too big to be told in one movie. I'm sure it has never occurred to Disney, parent company of Lucasfilm, that it will be more lucrative to make three movies rather than one.
