Han Solo Movie Has “One of the Best Scripts Period”

Han Solo Movie Has

Concept Artist Iain McCaig has quite an impressive resume, having provided design work for the Star Wars prequels and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Yes, he’s certainly a paradigm of quality art and knowledge, so when he has good  great things to say about the script for the forthcoming Han Solo movie, you know it comes with a considerable degree of validity. What did McCaig have to say about the Star Wars spinoff film focusing on the earlier adventures of Star Wars’ eventually rebellious, but always roguish rapscallion?

“[The Han Solo movie] has by far the best Star Wars script, and one of the best scripts period, that I have ever read,” he recently revealed after being asked about the status of the film. “I laughed, I cried, I did all the things you should do when reading a good script. You’re in for a treat.”

Wow. That’s a pretty stunning endorsement. However, given the talent involved, such a monumental script shouldn’t be a surprise. Writer Lawrence Kasdan, having worked on Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back, and The Force Awakens, penned the screenplay along with his son Joel; they were also aided by directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Yep, there’s some grade-A talent involved.

So, are you ready for the solo Han Solo movie?
