Bradford Young, who has worked with director Ava DuVernay on a number of films, has been named the cinematograher for Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film.

According to wikipedia, the film is centered on a young Han Solo, portrayed by Alden Ehrenreich, as he becomes the smuggler audiences first met in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. It also features Chewbacca in what has been described as an “origin story” for the two characters. The script is written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. The film is scheduled to be released on May 25, 2018.

Han Solo was most famously played by Harrison Ford in Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens.


Young’s most recent work is the upcoming Denis Villanueve‘s sci-fi film Arrival, which starts Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker. His previous work included Dee Rees’ Pariah, Andrew Dosunmu’s Mother of George, Ava DuVernay’s Middle of Nowhere and Selma, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, and J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which starred Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac. Also coming up is Andrew Dosunmu’s Beat-Up Little Seagull, which hits theaters next year.

For his work on Pariah (2011) and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints/ Mother of George (2013), he won cinematography awards from the Sundance Film Festival.
