Wes Anderson Thinks He Could Do A STAR WARS Han Solo Backstory

I'm a huge fan of Wes Anderson, and I'm sure if he really wanted to he could direct a movie without his signature style. But I love his style, and it would be strange to see him do anything different, especially a Star Wars film. Sure I'd love to see what he would do with the universe, but it doesn't seem like it would be his cup of tea. Star Wars did have a heavy influence on him though, and in a recent interview with Deadline the director is asked what the world would get if he signed on to direct one of the new Disney films. Here was his reply,

Well I have a feeling I would probably ultimately get replaced on the film because I don’t’ know if I have all the right action chops. But at least I know the characters from the old films.

Doesn't sound like he has the confidence in doing a big blockbuster film like Star Wars, but he does go on to say...

I don’t think I would do a terrible job at a Han Solo backstory. I could do that pretty well. But maybe that would be better as a short.

Now that's something I'd like to see! If he says he can do a Han Solo backstory, I believe that he could do it! I seriously doubt we'll ever see something like this happen, but it's fun to imagine. Here's a hilarious video skit that was done for Conan's late night show, that gives us a look at what a Wes Anderson Star Wars film might look like.
