solo deleted scenes

Solo acts as a fantastic standalone adventure movie, one that truly lives up to its A Star Wars Story subtitle. But fans couldn’t help noticing that the film left a few open threads. This is only the beginning of the beloved scoundrel’s journey, and Solo could very well be a launching pad for a whole new series.

Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard divulged whether he planted the seeds for potential Solo sequels and whether we could get that Lando Calrissian spin-off we’ve all been clamoring for.

Spoilers for Solo: A Star Wars Story follows.

han solo star wars prequels

In Solo: A Star Wars Story, we’ll get a Han Solo origin story that mirrors the one that was first told in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. But did you know that we almost had a Han Solo Star Wars prequels cameo that would have changed that?

In a cut subplot from 2005’s Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the SithGeorge Lucas had written a completely different backstory for Han Solo that would have nullified not only his EU origin, but the entire basis for Solo.

solo clips

Disney and Lucasfilm are ramping up the Solo marketing machine, with three new clips and a spanking new poster of the titular cocksure smuggler, Han Solo. But these new Solo clips give us a picture of the young Han (Alden Ehrenreich) before he became the dashing criminal we know and love — and the colorful characters who helped and hurt him along the way.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer Breakdown

Last night brought the debut of the latest trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, which featured almost entirely new footage from the forthcoming origin story of everyone’s favorite scoundrel. So far, the footage from the latest one-off story that takes place in a galaxy far, far away hasn’t been overwhelmingly impressive, but it hasn’t been downright terrible either. The latest trailer is more of the same: it looks like a purely entertaining sci-fi western, but there’s the concern that Alden Ehrenreich isn’t being showcased all that much in a movie that’s supposed to be about his character.

Let’s dig in with our Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer breakdown. Read More »

Solo millennium falcon standee

What would it be like to ride in the cockpit alongside Han Solo, Chewie, and Lando Calrissian? You’ll probably never know, but at least you’ll get a little taste of it thanks to a new Solo: A Star Wars Story cardboard standee.

The Solo Millennium Falcon standee was revealed by Disney last week, previewing the cockpit of Han Solo’s famous spacecraft just as it’s about the jump into hyperspace.

solo millennium falcon

Long before Luke Skywalker rudely called the Millennium Falcon “a piece of junk,” it was a sleek, clean vessel. Or at least, it was before Han Solo gets his hands on it in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story prequel film.

Fans of the iconic spacecraft might have noticed how wildly different the Falcon was in the Solo trailer — white, shiny, and lacking its distinguishable mandibles. Now, we get to find out why the starship looks so completely different, and how it slowly transforms into the “piece of junk” we all know and love.

solo a star wars story trailer debut

Update: It turns out that everyone was one day off. It now looks like the Solo trailer will debut on Good Morning America this Monday, February 5. Our original article follows.

“Where’s the Solo trailer?” has been the resounding question in the sci-fi fan community for the past few months. The Star Wars standalone film is merely four months away from release, and we haven’t heard a peep out of Lucasfilm or Disney — highly unusual for a tentpole film in one of the biggest franchises in the world.

Solo: A Star Wars Story has had a troubled journey to the big screen and the silence around the film is just as concerning as the behind-the-scenes tales of production woes. But new reports suggest that we finally have a (probable) release date for the Solo trailer: the Super Bowl.
