“Thought we were in trouble there for a second, but it’s fine. We’re fine.” ~ Han Solo
Yes, it’s true, Star Wars fans have been anxiously waiting for the Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer to drop for months now and I am not going to lie; I was getting nervous. There has been much speculation as to when it would drop but the wait is over, it’s finally here!!
Disclaimer: I am a Star Wars Nerd and I have been a little hesitant about this project. But after seeing the Teaser Trailer I am ready for this movie!! Bring on Solo and bring me the Wookie too.
I have always been curious about the story of how my favorite scoundrel got his start in the Star Wars Universe.
His goal is to be a pilot; the best in the Galaxy but he was kicked out of the flight academy for having a mind of his own. The story of Solo takes place between Episode 3 and 4; a few years before Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One.
After watching the Trailer several times I am really curious if we will see Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) in Star Wars Rebels. In the trailer we see him ask Solo about being part of his crew. I don’t know why I think that, but my gut is telling me something about him.
I am excited to see how Han, Lando and Chewie begin their journey together. Seeing a young Lando makes me really excited, I think I have a crush on him right now! So much goodness about to be thrown our way with this movie!
Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is directed by Ron Howard and features Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Emilia Clarke as Qi’Ra, Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
