Have you noticed that I’ve been posting more about movies lately? I’m super excited to have teamed up with Disney to start sharing the latest movie news and trailers with you! I’ll still have all my recipes, parenting posts, travel tips and everything else you’re used to seeing here. Now you’ll just get a little something extra with the new Movie Buzz…consider it a bonus!
Who are your favorite Star Wars characters? For me it’s a tie between Han Solo and Chewbacca. Choosing one over the other would be like picking a favorite child. Now I just heard some great news that I’m dying to share!
A Han Solo Star Wars trilogy (yet to be named), just started filming in London last week. It doesn’t hit theaters until May 25, 2018 but I’m already looking forward to the first trailers. My youngest will be excited too. Meeting Chewy at Hollywood Studios was a little scary for her at first but by the time we were done, she had a new best friend.

Here’s the scoop from Disney:
Han Solo Star Wars Story
The adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee is going before cameras this month when principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20th at Pinewood Studios, London.The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
“Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous,” Lord and Miller said. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”
I have a feeling there may be a few people lining up to see this one! Are you a Star Wars fan too? Which character is your favorite?
