Kathleen Kennedy says Han Solo standalone will have a Western feel

As Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) continues to do considerable business at the box office, Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm will no doubt be hoping to have equal success with there next Star Wars standalone following the adventures of the young Han Solo. Now Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy has been talking about what they have planned for the scruffy looking scoundrel.

In an interview with Variety, Kennedy outlined a little more about the movie's tone and style, which will be different again from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the saga stories such as Star Wars" The Force Awakens (2015). "There are other stories that we can tell in that same transportive and transcendent spirit. Going forward, you're going to see movies that shift tonally, some that are grittier and tougher, and some more comedic in nature", says Kennedy. "This moves closer to a heist or Western type feel. We've talked about Frederic Remington and those primary colors that are used in his paintings defining the look and feel of the film." You can see an example of his art below.

The Han Solo film, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), will be out 25 May 2018. Rogue One: A Story Wars Story, meanwhile, is out in cinemas now.
