Hey everybody! We are officially less than 3 weeks away from SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY! I don’t know about you guys, but I am so excited to see this new addition to the Star Wars saga. My excitement just keeps growing with each new sneak peek. A new clip and 2 featurettes for SOLO were recently released. Check them out below!
SOLO: A Star Wars Story Clip
Can you hear me screaming? It’s the first time Han and Chewie team up as pilot and co-pilot! And they may not realize it just yet, but they are going to be sitting side-by-side in that same ship for years to come.
What I would like to know is why Qi’Ra is sitting in the co-pilot seat in the first place, especially since she doesn’t seem to know what she’s doing. Can you just imagine what Chewie is thinking? It was nice of him to simply help her out. Also, what is Qi’Ra going to help Lando with? Why is the Falcon’s pilot not piloting her?
Speaking of Lando and the Falcon, check out the featurette below to tour the Millennium Falcon with Lando Calrissian himself, Donald Glover!
Tour the Millennium Falcon with Donald Glover in this SOLO: A Star Wars Story Featurette
As Donald Glover says, the Falcon has never looked better! Wow! I can barely recognize the beloved piece of garbage in this clip. Guest quarters? A food bar? A cape room? What do you guys think Han did to those features of the ship? I bet you he definitely didn’t keep the cape room (sadly).
Speaking on Han, check out the featurette below, all about becoming Han Solo.
Becoming Solo Featurette
It takes a lot to bring to life a past version of a character already well established and well loved. I remember hearing about all kinds of complaints and protests about hiring a new actor to play a younger version of Han Solo. I’ll admit, I was worried at first, but all of these sneak peeks have made me confident that everyone who came together to make this movie possible has succeeded in bringing a younger version of Han to life.
Of course, there’s a lot more to this movie than simply bringing a younger Han Solo to life. As we learn about in the featurette, this is a different version of Star Wars than we’re used to. This is the Star Wars before the original trilogy picks up, when the Empire controls everything and before Leia leads the rebel alliance against them. I can’t wait to see how everyone comes together to tell this story.
