Han Solo, Chewie, Lando and Qi’Ra Featured On New Posters
Fans have been foaming at the mouth for any footage from Solo: A Star Wars Story. Starting during the Super Bowl last night, they got their wish. A teaser trailer just after kickoff, the full trailer this morning, and now these four colorful character posters.
The posters feature Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Emilia Clarke as Qi’Ra, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Rounding out some of the remaining cast, but yet to have posters, are Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, and Thandie Newton.
There has been quite a lot of speculation and rumor surrounding Solo. After the departure of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Ron Howard was brought in to finish the film. Rumors started pouring in that the film was in trouble and Disney execs were preparing for it to bomb. Last month, Star Wars: The Last Jedi floundered at the box office in China.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story faced similar obstacles due to extensive reshoots. It was also reported that the film was suffering problems. But it went on to be a huge success both with fans and at the box office. In spite of The Last Jedi‘s failure in China, it has grossed over one billion US dollars worldwide.
Solo depicts the origin story of the infamous yet loveable scoundrel Han Solo and his first adventures with Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. This will also mark the first appearance of Lando since Return of the Jedi. Fans were disappointed that he wasn’t included in the cast of The Last Jedi. Perhaps his contributions to Han’s origin story prevented his appearance in the current Star Wars films.
Disney is remaining tight-lipped about anything regarding Solo as fans prepare for the film’s May 25th release.
