One of the big mysteries of the Han Solo movie that Lawrence Kasdan is writing is now solved, as we know when the movie is set.
In an interview with IndieWire, Kasdan said it’s about ten years before A New Hope:
“It will not be hereâ€™s where he was born and this is how he was raised. I think what it will be is, what was he like 10 years earlier, maybe a little earlier, youâ€™ll get a glimpse. But Kurosawa once said the heroes are the ones that are still changing and the villains are locked and petrified into what they are. And Harrison embodies in ‘Force Awakens’ someone who is still not settled on who he is,” Kasdan said.
That also puts the Prequel to be about five years before the beginning of Star Wars Rebels.
