With Avengers: Infinity War absolutely kicking everyone’s ass in theaters, Disney is now looking to push their next monster in the forefront, Solo: A Star Wars Story. A few new TV spots have been released for the Star Wars spinoff, which I included below, but the best recent video from the film is that of a behind-the-scenes featurette that has young Landa Calrissian himself, Donald Glover, touring us around the brand new (or old…?) Millennium Falcon.
One of the hottest topics from this spinoff since the first bit of footage was released has been the look of the Millennium Falcon. Whether how clean it looks or how physically different it looks, the Falcon has been the center of many heated discussions between Star Wars nerds. Whatever your opinion may be, it doesn’t matter because this Falcon is coming in very hot, and for the first time ever in a Star Wars film, with a new Captain. As Star Wars lore states, Han won the Falcon from Landa way back when. Well, luckily for us, it looks like Solo may very well tell that story, or at least the beginnings of it as Lando is in the lead seat this time around.
Whether or not we get to see all these cool rooms in the movie, getting a bts look at the new Falcon is an extremely smart move. Not only that, but putting Donald Glover as the host and letting him just have fun with will definitely win over fans who may have been or still are a little bit hesitant towards this idea.
Many think that Glover is going to steal the movie with his performance as Lando, which could be the case, but I for once am looking forward to seeing Ehrenreich’s performance as Han, given that they’re keeping him under lock and key for the most part, as well as Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra. With all the early problems this movie had, it’s done nothing but head in the right direction since, and I couldn’t be more excited. Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story will hit a theater near you on May 25th.
Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
