'Star Wars: Last Shot' Book Excerpt Teases New Han & Lando Story

'Star Wars: Last Shot' Book Excerpt Teases New Han & Lando Story 'Star Wars: Last Shot' Book Excerpt Teases New Han & Lando Story

We now know exactly where in the Star Wars timeline the movie takes place.

The official Star Wars website has released an excerpt from the upcoming book, Star Wars: Last Shot by author Daniel José Older.

Del Rey has a timeline of its many Star Wars titles that puts them all into chronological order, and the new edition places Solo before both the animated Star Wars Rebels series and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, making it the first onscreen project to take place after the rise of the Empire in 2005's Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith chronologically.

For all the well-loved material that was lost when Disney officially excised the expanded universe from Star Wars canon, the upside was that the timeline has become a lot cleaner, at least for now.

Solo: A Star Wars story poster. Star Wars: Tarkin and Star Wars: A New Dawn (a prequel to Rebels that takes place six years before the events of the show) are the imprints to pay attention to. The trailer does not offer new footage from the movie, but it offers a closer look at Han Solo and his dream of becoming a pilot. Tarkin is primarily set 14 years prior to the Battle of Yavin, which means we're looking at a gap of almost a decade where Solo could be taking place. What sort of state is the rebellion in at this early date? If we are looking forward to the youth of the smuggler, we confess that it is hard to realize that Solo could be played by a different actor than Harrison Ford.

The first global trailer for "Solo: A Star Wars Story" has arrived, featuring a remix of the Super Bowl TV commercial released last month.

Though there were creative differences leading to the original directors being fired and the movie being on a short hiatus, Ron Howard (director of The Da Vinci Code) was able to step in and the film will finally be released on May 25, 2018.
