Following the casting of Emilia Clarke, now the upcoming Star Wars Han Solo movie is being compared to a Western.

"This moves closer to a heist or western type feel,” Kathleen Kennedy, president of LucasFilm, tells Variety. “We’ve talked about (Frederic) Remington and those primary colors that are used in his paintings defining the look and feel of the film.”

The Han Solo movie will take place in the early days of the character, prior to Episode IV and will also feature Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. 

Here is an example of Frederic Remington art Kennedy references (anyone else think of Whedon's Firefly?):

The untitled Star Wars Han Solo movie will be released May 25, 2018 directed by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller with a script by Lawrence and Joe Kasdan starring Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.
