During the Deutsche Bank 2016 Media & Telecom Conference, Disney’s Bob Iger talked about Rogue One and The upcoming Han Solo standalone film. Iger revealed that the film will be an origin story that will focus on the smuggler and also his friend Chewbacca. So it seems that we will see how the two eventually meet for the first Time.
Here’s what Iger had to say about the news:
“Rogue One … is about a band of rebels plotting to steal the plans to the Death Star. It takes place right before George Lucas‘s first film, which came out in 1977 and is now called ‘The New Hope.’
