After an initial report from The Hollywood Reporter citing unnamed sources, StarWars.com has confirmed that "LEGO Movie" and "21 Jump Street" directing team Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are taking on one of the Star Wars spinoff feature films -- one starring a young Han Solo.

The film will feature a screenplay from "Force Awakens" and "Empire Strikes Back" scripter Lawrence Kasdan as well as his son Jon Kasdan. The story will be set before the events of 1977's "Star Wars" and will focus 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."

"We're so excited to be working with Chris and Phil, who will bring a fresh new dimension to the Star Wars universe," said the Kasdans in the official release. "They're two of the smartest, funniest and most original filmmakers around, and the ideal choice to tell the story of Han Solo, one of the coolest characters in the galaxy."

A spinoff starring a proto Solo has been rumored since the in-betweenquels were first announced. The first one, "Rogue One," will be directed by Gareth Edwards and is scheduled to be released on December 16, 2016. THR makes sure to note that this project is not the same one that Josh Trank was in line to helm before he parted ways with Disney and Lucasfilm. That project is still rumored to be a Boba Fett origin and is still looking for a director.

We already know how that happened. He was an Imperial soldier who freed
some Wookiee slaves and no longer wanted to be an Imperial soldier.

We already know that as well. He was Jango Feet's unaltered clone and
saw his "father" killed in Episode II. He was then "adopted" by Aurra
Sing.
