In his long and notable career as a screenwriter, Lawrence Kasdan will have penned four Star Wars movies: The Empire Strikes Back (no doubt the best of the franchise), Return of the Jedi, the upcoming The Force Awakens (with director J.J. Abrams) and the as-of-yet-untitled Han Solo anthology movie with his son, Jon Kasdan.
And it looks like it will be his last.
In an interview with the German site Bild (via The Supernaughts), Kasdan said he’s been working on his last script for the past two years, which appears to be the young Han Solo spinoff movie set to be helmed by LEGO Movie directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord.
In the article, Kasdan revealed that it would be his last film for the epic saga set in that small galaxy far, far away. “I did not even want to do this last one anymore, but my family loved the idea. […],” the writer/director told Bild.
Kasdan said there are two reasons why the movie that'll star everyone's favorite space smuggler will be his last. The first one being that he thinks having written four Star Wars movies is more than enough for him, and the other being that he wants to direct again.
Are you disappointed that Lawrence Kasdan has decided to make the upcoming Han Solo movie his last Star Wars film? Or do you believe it’s time for him to hand over the beloved fanchise to another generation of writers?
