The second Anthology spinoff Star Wars story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley. Plot details are largely unknown, but the film will cover Han's life from the ages of 18-24 and explore key events such as meeting his lifelong friend Chewbacca and winning the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian.
Han Solo was introduced in the original Star Wars film released in 1977, portrayed by Harrison Ford. Ford reprised the character in three sequels, most recently in 2015's The Force Awakens, where he died at the hands of his son, Kylo Ren. Solo's past has been shrouded in mystery in Star Wars canon, and this film hopes to shed more life on his earlier days before he became a Rebellion hero.
Rumors have indicated star Alden Ehrenreich signed a three picture deal with Lucasfilm when he was cast, so this conceivably could be the first installment of a standalone Han Solo trilogy.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry's hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor - finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World's Best Lover.
This is the sequel to Deadpool, the 2016 comic book blockbuster that earned widespread critical acclaim (including a Producers Guild nomination for Best Picture) and broke box office records during its run, becoming the highest-grossing R-rated film of all-time. For the followup, Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson is joined by new heroes Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beetz), who are joining the franchise as a means of setting up the X-Force film that Drew Goddard is helming. Deadpool 2 (which is not the official title) sees many characters from the original return, including Colossus, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Blind Al, and Dopinder the taxi driver. David Leitch of John Wick fame is taking over director duties for Tim Miller, who moved on to make a new Terminator with James Cameron.

When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) turns regret into re-set by going back to college... landing in the same class and school as her daughter, who’s not entirely sold on the idea.
