Star Wars Theory Series Part 19: The new Han Solo movie director, plus Boba Fett and Battlefront 2 news

Star Wars Theory Series is hosted by co-founder Liz Prugh and her brother Patrick Pochop (talking about Star Wars is one of the only ways she can get him to hang out with her). They frequently have their other two brothers, dad, and Liz’s husband and self-proclaimed Star Wars experts as guest hosts. They’re dedicated to putting a fun and comedic spin on each episode. New episodes are posted on Fridays, where they break down a new theory and news about the film franchise.

This week we discuss the big Star Wars news: The Han Solo film has a new director! Ron Howard steps in as the previous duo parts ways with Disney, and we discuss the perks of the Hollywood legend taking over. We also break down the incredible trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II on PlayStation 4, what we know about Episode VIII’s casino planet Canto Bight, as well as some Boba Fett news that hints at the famous character’s appearance in a possible film. Listen and see details below!

In this podcast we discuss:

  • Han Solo movie news: Ron Howard taking over as director for the Han Solo film (they were 3/4 of the way done shooting!), and what the reshoots could mean about the film’s success.
  • The casino planet in Episode VIII: We discuss the details of this incredible new setting, called Canto Bight, and what it has to do with the story of the film.
  • The Star Wars Battlefront II trailer for PS4: Pat points out the highlights: clones, Darth Maul, Darth Maul fighting Yoda, and the jump through time where Rey and Kylo battle it out. See the trailer below:

  • Boba Fett news: How Daniel Logan, who played young Boba Fett in the prequels, pleased fans by posting a photo of himself (see below) in Empire Strikes Back Boba-garb. We’d like to point out that he’s the perfect age to appear as Boba in one of the future Star Wars films…
