After lending his talents to four Star Wars films, longtime writer Lawrence Kasdan is stepping away from the series.
"I have now made four Star Wars movies," Kasdan said, including the Han Solo project in his official count. "I think that's more than enough."
Kasdan also confided that he originally had very little interest in writing the spinoff, but because his family was so excited by the idea, he agreed to co-write it with his son, Jon. The writer is most famous for his work on both The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983.
In an interview with Wired, The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams said being able to work alongside Kasdan was like an "extended masterclass" in filmmaking and all that goes into it.
The Force Awakens, Kasdan's third official Star Wars project, lands in theaters on Dec. 18.
