Harrison Ford might be done with the part, but that isn’t going to indicate Han Solo is gone from our screens for very good. In fact, he’ll be again before you know it in Solo: A Star Wars Tale, a new prequel movie devoted to everyone’s favourite scoundrel.
A great deal like Rogue 1 before it, Solo is a prequel established somewhat apart from the new trilogy kicked off by The Pressure Awakens, which will emphasis on his formative decades. The film’s because of out in just a couple months, but with troubled creation and no trailer in sight, fans are anxious that this could be the to start with dud since these other prequels we’re not meant to discuss about. Here’s what we know so significantly.
If you might be searching for news and trailers from the rest of the year’s significant releases, make certain to test out our information to 2018’s most significant impending movies.
Though the other 3 contemporary Star Wars movies have all aimed for December releases, Disney is attempting a diverse tactic with Solo. The movie will occur out on twenty five May well 2018 in most big marketplaces (including the British isles and US). That’s just a couple months away, and still we haven’t experienced a single official even now, poster, or trailer for the film, which has sparked fears that Disney might not be too self-assured in the movie.
Forged and crew
Harrison Ford is, sadly, a tiny outdated to phase again into the Millennium Falcon cockpit for a prequel, so for the to start with time Han Solo will be performed by somebody else: Alden Ehrenreich, whose most significant part to day was a outstanding switch in the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!
He’ll be joined by a outstanding supporting cast however. Initially up will be a younger Lando Calrissian, performed by Donald Glover (Local community, Atlanta) who’s as perfectly recognized for his performing as for his songs, underneath the pseudonym Childish Gambino.
That’s not all however. Video game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke will also join the crew, alongside with Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Warwick Davis, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The Millennium Falcon will be rather complete then.
Potentially the most encouraging news about the movie is the script, which has been jointly prepared by Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan. If that name appears common, it really should – the more mature Kasdan has been associated in Star Wars at any time since he wrote the screenplay for The Empire Strikes Back again, and he also contributed to the script for The Pressure Awakens.
Sad to say, there is a lot less encouraging news about the director’s chair. Ron Howard (Apollo thirteen, A Attractive Head) is overseeing the movie, which isn’t so negative – he is a risk-free but extremely able choice. Sad to say, he has not been associated for extensive – he only joined the movie in June 2017, months into capturing, following the unique directors remaining the challenge.
I’m further than grateful to add my voice to the Star Wars Universe following remaining a lover since five/twenty five/77.

They have been Phil Lord and Chris Miller, most effective recognized for The Lego Film and 21 Leap Street, and their inclusion experienced held the assure of an interesting, unconventional movie with a robust feeling of humour – precisely what a Han Solo prequel may well need to triumph. Sad to say, Disney execs have been sad with the footage from their to start with couple months of capturing, foremost to the upheaval that observed them replaced by Howard.
That substitute experienced one more casualty too. Howard stepping in meant a raft of new reshoots for the movie, but Michael K Williams (The Wire) – earlier envisioned to be in a big function – couldn’t make the new dates, and experienced to be completely replaced by Paul Bettany.
Poster and shots
So significantly there have been extremely couple illustrations or photos unveiled from the movie. The most effective so significantly is this early creation image, which gives us a search at the principal cast in the Falcon cockpit – out of costume.
Other than the title card, that’s mainly it for now – we don’t even have a poster for the movie, or a single picture of Ehrenreich in costume as the titular smuggler.
Observe the trailer
This is where we’d usually provide you the newest trailer for the movie. But appropriate now we are unable to, simply because Disney even now has not unveiled any official footage – not even a teaser.
Apparently a single was meant to be unveiled in January, all through an episode of Good Morning America, but even that was postponed as Disney necessary still additional reshoots – a single day’s truly worth – just to complete up the trailer. Verify again right here and we are going to update this report as soon as we basically have a trailer to check out.
