The Han Solo movie is almost here! New trailer launched for Solo: A Star Wars Story out in UK cinemas on 25 May 2018

I personally cannot wait to board the Millennium Falcon and journey the galaxy far, far away with Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy, Han Solo. Ron Howard directs it, which can only mean success for the Star Wars franchise. And as big Star Wars fans we love to have another prequel in-between movies. 

We can expect a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, with Han Solo meeting his mighty future co-pilot and best friend Chewbacca for the first time and encountering the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, who will hand him over the Millennium Falcon at some point.

I suppose everybody was disappointed to see Han Solo die in The Force Awakens so this movie is like a consolation prize to get back our Star Wars most unlikely hero and find out more about his mysterious past. 

Joonas Suotamo is Chewbacca, Woody Harrelson is Beckett and Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.

The trailer 

If the Millennium Falcon was a character, it could easily be my favourite one and Han Solo is probably one of the most beloved characters from Star Wars. 

The new standalone Star Wars movie (after Rogue One) with the story centred on the notorious smuggler is going to be quite strange because we will see Han Solo being played for the first time by somebody else other than Harrison Ford. 

Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo and Joonas Suotamo is Chewbacca in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.

I expect great things from this movie especially if the film has the typical features of Star Wars movies, a great combination of humour and darkness. 

Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo, Donal Glover is Lando Calrissian and Phoebe Waller-Bridge is L3-37 in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.

We don’t need to wait too long: Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released in UK cinemas on 25 May 2018.
