However, the two synopses provided for Solo: A Star Wars Story and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 are new and offer some insight into each movie’s story. You can check them out below.

John Williams Will Score Star Wars Episode IX

John Williams, who has provided iconic music for every Star Wars film (save Rogue One, which nonetheless used his themes), is all but confirmed to score Star Wars: Episode 9.

A new interview with the master composer has Williams confirming that he would very much like to finish out the new trilogy, and that he made this known to director J.J. Abrams. It’s not a firm confirmation, but we can just go ahead and assume that John Williams will provide the Episode 9 score.

Solo: A Star Wars Story LEGO Sets

Even though Solo: A Star Wars Story is only five months away from release, we’ve yet to see a teaser trailer or even an official still from the movie. However, last week a piece of official-looking promotional art surfaced online, even though it wasn’t created by either Disney or Lucasfilm. But today, we found out where that art came from, and we have even more interesting details.

The golden artwork in question for Solo: A Star Wars Story is merchandise artwork, and one of the images is specifically being used by LEGO.

Han Solo Theme - John Williams

Over five months ago we found out that John Powell would be composing the score for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Though composer John Williams has been responsible for providing the score for every film in the primary Star Wars saga, Disney and Lucasfilm have opted to let other composers take over for the spin-offs under the Star Wars Story moniker. However, when it comes to Solo: A Star Wars Story, fans will hear some new music composed by John Williams after all.

In a recent interview with the legendary composer, John Williams revealed that he will be composing a theme for the Han Solo movie while John Powell will handle the rest of the score. Find out more about the Han Solo theme revelation below. Read More »

Solo: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters in May of 2018, but we’ve yet to see a teaser trailer or any official stills from the movie that takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope (though an unofficial promo image recently surfaced online). That’s likely because Disney and Lucasfilm want the focus to be on Star Wars: The Last Jedi for the time being, but fans are still eager to get their first look at the Star Wars origin story of one of the most favorite characters in the entire saga.

While we don’t have a new look at Solo: A Star Wars Story yet, a certain detail hinting at the appearance of another fan favorite character may have slipped right under our noses. Director Ron Howard posted several photos from the set when the film was still in production, but none of them had anything particularly revealing in them. However, one fan took a much closer look at one of the photos, and it just might hint at an appearance by the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett in the Han Solo movie. Read More »

Update: Disney and Lucasfilm have confirmed to us that this art was not created by them for the movie and are not aware of its origins. We have added thoughts on its potential origins below.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is supposed to open in just a few months and Lucasfilm has yet to unveil a trailer. Or a teaser. Or even a proper photo of the cast in-character. We haven’t even seen an official look at Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo yet! Sure, this is all because of the troubled production and the extensive reshoots, but it’s been giving Star Wars fans grey hairs.

But now, international promotional art showing off the film’s characters has arrived online and it gives us a look at Han, Lando, Chewbacca, a new mystery character, and the Millennium Falcon.
