On May 25th, we are going to see the story of our favorite scoundrel in the galaxy, Han Solo. Solo: A Star Wars Story, is another standalone movie centered on one character only. Now this is something new as we’re used to seeing Solo played by Harrison Ford, and we do not know what to expect yet, with a new actor playing this role.
The trailer is a good one there. Honestly, it makes our breathing stop by just watching it. And that’s something to be excited about!
We got a good look at Chewbacca this time, and the trailer does show that there seems to be some robbery involved. Well, that’s what the character is all about. We see some familiar faces too!
So what is this movie about? The story depicts how Han meets Chewbacca and comes across Lando Calrissian, the famous notorious gambler. That’s the only thing we know about because they’ve been careful not to leak the plot. However, we also have known that the movie will take place somewhere around 10 years prior to the events of Star Wars: A New Hope. This is interesting because that period of time sits basically right in between the end of the prequel trilogy and the beginning of the original trilogy. The Empire already exists but not as powerful as they are in Star Wars: A New Hope. Fact is, this Han Solo movie will never be anything the same as we’ve seen in Star Wars before, although a lot may have been expecting that this will try to evoke the atmosphere of the original trilogy, like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
It’s also been rumored that this movie will show Han Solo winning the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian. But this will likely be one plot point among the many. We can also see how Han learned all the skills of becoming a smuggler since his mentor will be a major character in the movie.
We also have known that Disney repurposed the many characters and events written found in Expanded Universe of books and comics. Now we know that it’s possible the story of this movie is just out there in place.
Again this new film tells us how Han and Chewbacca meets and become inseparable, instead of starting the film of them working together already. This is going to be very interesting. We’re also guessing that the movie will start some time before Han was a professional smuggler and we’ll get to be explained how he landed on the place Mos Eisley cantina. So this could be the story of what turned him into the scoundrel we all love.
As mentioned above, we’ll be seeing new and familiar faces in this movie. Han Solo is played by Alden Ahrenreich, an American actor who made his feature-film debut in Francis Ford Coppola’s Tetro in 2009. We’ll see what he’s in store for us in this movie. We’re also going to see Emilia Clarke here, as Kira. And Lando is played by Donald Glover. Woody Harrelson will play as Beckett. We can also expect to see Paul Bettany, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Warwick Davis, Joonas Suotamo of course, as Chewbacca, and a lot more.
Star Wars movies have made a history in humankind. We are hoping this standalone -character-movie will stand up to the standards especially that this is all about our favorite Han Solo. All right, so brace yourselves for another giveaway from a galaxy far, far away!
