This past Sunday during “The Big Game”, many were focused on the sportive play but I’ll have to admit that I was mostly interested on the trailers that we had learned were heading our way and were psyched at the first glimpse of the next “Star Wars” universe connected film “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. I’ve copied the premise along with the casting so scroll on down below.
The Premise: A space Western, the film is centered on a young Han Solo and his adventures with his Wookiee partner Chewbacca, including their encounter with Lando Calrissian.
Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo
Woody Harrelson as Beckett
Emilia Clarke as Kira
Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian
Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca
Paul Bettany as an undisclosed character
Jon Kasdan as Tag Greenley
Toby Hefferman as Bink Otauna
Ian Kenny – undisclosed role
Warwick Davis – undisclosed role
Clint Howard – undisclosed role
PiercingMetal Thoughts: “Solo: A Star Wars Story” will be the fourth “Star Wars” franchise film in the span of four years so it appears we will be getting one “modern times” film every other year while a pre-story film will come out on alternate years. This looks really fun so I hope that it is. I must admit that I am one of the people who felt that “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was a little lackluster but on the same token I know people who loved it and saw it several times. For me it was a one and done movie house watch until the home video release which I will be adding to my collection. A lot of people don’t like the idea of prequel films but if they could do so good with “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, I remain hopeful for this one. To close up I’ve shared the also recently revealed few character posters. I generally give these their own post but since they appeared on the same day I’m doubling down 🙂 Until we meet again.
