Harrison Ford is about to enter a very different galaxy.
The star of the Star Wars franchise joins the rapidly growing universe of Yellowstone in yet another prequel, tentatively titled 1932.
Ford will star alongside Oscar winner Helen Mirren, who comes from an entirely different universe, after her turn in the latest Fast and Furious movie.
1932 will sit squarely between Paramount+’s first Yellowstone spin-off prequel, 1883, and the original series.
Yellowstone, which stars Kevin Costner, launched in 2018 to critical and public acclaim. It’s about a ranching family, the Duttons, who own a huge swath of land (enough to surround the reservation with a native people) and all the trials and tribulations of trying to maintain control of the property. We described him as “The Godfather on Horseback”.
1883, launched this year, is Dutton’s origin story. Apparently, the success was enough for Paramount+ to decide to fill the decades-long void with 1932. If it’s successful, we might see 1952 and 1972.
As for what 1932 will be about, Paramount+ says it will explore, “the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression plagued the mountain to the west and the Duttons who lived there. ‘inhabit.’
Details on Ford and Mirren’s roles were not shared. They previously starred together in Mosquito Coast in 1986.
Like the rest of the Yellowstone franchise, 1932 comes from the mind of show creator Taylor Sheridan. The show is set to air on Paramount+ in December.
