Although the reaction to not just the first official trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story was positive, but the posters as well, that specifically was dampened a little bit due to the allegations that the posters were ripped off from a French artist of a 2015 album. It’s safe to say that Solo has had a bit of a bumpy road so far, but Disney is looking to change that mindset as a batch of new characters have been revealed.
For the record, they are basically the same exact poster, just with small changes that won’t scream rip off on them. Rather than have big bold letters run across the sheet, we get an expanded look at the background of each character with a more traditional logo towards the bottom. The only other difference that can be noticed is Alden Ehrenreich is simply called “Han” this time around, rather than Solo.
I particularly enjoy the colors being used for each characters. Character posters are suppose to be different and specific to those characters, and these do a pretty damn good job of doing that. While we’ve seen Han, Chewie and Lando for years now, these are far different versions of those characters and so far, I’m very interested in seeing each of them, as well as Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra.
What are your thoughts on the posters? Do you like the first or second versions? Which character are you most excited to see? Is there anything that’s holding you back from being excited? Directed by Ron Howard and also starring Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Paul Bettany, Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th.
