Now that we’ve seen some footage of Solo: A Star Wars story, it looks like Lucasfilm is ready to market the film hard in the three and a half months before its release. Entertainment Weekly’s Anthony Breznican revealed some new images and information about the film so I’m gonna run through all of it real fast, talk about that new stuff and speculate a bit on what some of it means. If you’re trying to avoid everything about the movie, even speculation, this is your potential spoiler warning. The first images of Han and Chewie on the Falcon. Lawrence Kasdan says that Solo is a secret bromance, a love story between Han and Chewie. I’m all about that. I really loved seeing Finn and Poe meet and bond and become friends in The Force Awakens, which Kasdan also wrote. If Han and Chewie budding friendship is anything like that, I’m gonna love it. Kasdan also says that wookies don’t make it easy for you to get in to me. That says that Chewie might initially not be crazy about Han. Which is interesting. In the old Legends book The Hutt Gambit, we get to see the months after Chewie swore a life debt to Han and it’s Han who doesn’t want Chewie following him. We might see a bit of a role reversal in this movie. The next picture is all about Han. The article says this film is a combination noir and Western with buddy comedy elements. Again that all sounds good. But it also says that Han is more of an idealist in Solo. I was not expecting that. If I have to guess I think Han will get burned after he makes a selfless decision and that’ll influence who he becomes by the time of A New Hope. This is just another image of Lando and confirmation that he’s playing sabacc in this scene. Nothing else to say really. But Donald Glover continues to look great in the role. Moving on we get to see Qi’ra, Emilia Clark’s character. She’s said to be the galactic noir’s mystery woman and the picture is even captioned the femme fatale. She and Han apparently grew up on the streets together and while she appears to be very elegant in the film, she’s hiding a rough past. Remember my guess earlier about Han making a selfless decision and getting burned for it? Considering what we know about noir movies and the role of the femme fatale, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Qi’ra is at the center of that. If Han gets betrayed by one of his oldest friends that would be enough to make anyone a little jaded. Here we have Han and Chewie on the back of the train which is confirmed to be part of a heist. We don’t know what they’re stealing, but we do know that the double-sided train is called The Conveyex. Also, the aurebesh just translates to hitch joint. Han, Chewie and Woody Harrelson’s character, Tobias Beckett, sit in the Falcon discussing their upcoming heist. Beckett is said to be a mentor to Han, who grew up without a father. Han was an orphan in Legends and that seems to have always been the intent of George Lucas according to Lucasfilm’s notes surrounding his past. Next up we take a look at the Falcon’s exterior. Ron Howard teases that there is a reason for its new look, but we’ll just have to wait and see what that reason is. The new droids designation is L3-37. I wonder if they’ll call her Leet for short. She’s said to have more personality than most droids – more emotional and less rigid. And they seemed a hint that she’s been built from various cobbled together parts. The final picture is from the planet Mimban. That planets first appearance was in the very first Star Wars novel, Splinter of the Mind’s Eye. It’s a Legends story now, but the planet was already made canon by The Clone Wars. When the trailers came out, I guessed that the Imperial admissions facility and the streets Han raced through were all on Corellia. It looks like that all is actually Mimban. It all seems to match the articles description as perpetually overcast. That could mean that Han’s desire to join the Empire is part of a con job after all. If all of that is on the same planet, but right now, that’s anyone’s guess. Those are all the new images, and if you want to read the article for yourself, I’ve linked to it in the description. More information is coming out from Entertainment Weekly tomorrow and Friday and I’ll keep you updated on Twitter at the very least and here if I think the news is big enough.
