While Solo: A Star Wars Story has had more difficulties than a blind man at an orgy, one aspect of it that keeps me instilled with hope is that it was co-written by Lawrence Kasdan, who scripted two of the most beloved films within the nerd community, in The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Working with his son, Jon, the Kasdans worked to bring a younger version of Han Solo to the big screen. The elder Kasdan spoke about the experience on the most recent episode of The Star Wars Show and discussed working together on the film.
“I did want to write with Jon for years, but of course, there is that wariness. Can a father and a son…?It can be ragged, but the good times — which were most of the times — were amazing.”
It can be tough working with family, especially a parent and sibling dynamic. Hopefully, Kasdan’s years of experience within the Star Wars universe coupled with Ron Howard’s directorial skills will be enough to save the film. The father-son paring is nice because perhaps Jon can take over the mantle as this is likely Lawrence Kasdan’s last hoorah in a galaxy far, far away.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters May 25.
