'Solo' Character Posters Offer A New Look At Jon Favreau's Character

A whole gaggle of Solo character posters have arrived, introducing us to the characters who occupy the latest Star Wars Story. The best of the bunch offers up a new look at Jon Favreau's character, an alien named Rio.

Hey, are you in the mood for some Solo character posters? I had a feeling you were, or else you probably wouldn't have clicked on this story. As we get closer and closer to Ron Howard's Star Wars prequel, expecting more and more marketing to arrive. We've already witnessed some pretty cool footage via trailers and TV spots. Now we have these character posters. I'm still not crazy about the orange/red color scheme, but I do like the hand-painted quality on display here.

Solo Character Poster Han

Here's Alden Ehrenreich as Han. At some point during pre-production for Solo, someone made a decision that Han would look shocked and/or puzzled in all the marketing material for the film. And here we are.

Solo Character poster Qi'Ra

Next up: Emilia Clarke as Qi'Ra, Han's childhood friend who apparently wears gloves through the entire movie. What's she hiding under those gloves? My guess: lobster hands, just like Solo character Therm Scissorpunch.

Solo character poster Lando

Oh hell yeah, everyone's boyfriend is here: Donald Glover as Lando. Look at that cape!

Solo character poster Chewbacca

Chewbacca! What's most interesting about this poster is the fact that while the other character posters all feature the names of the actors portraying the parts, Chewbacca's simply says "Chewbacca." Indicating that the Wookie plays himself.

Solo character poster Beckett

Here's Woody Harrelson as Beckett, Han's mentor. Nice mustache.

At one point, Michael K. Williams was going to play this part. Dryden was originally going to be a motion-capture character, and Williams said the look resembled a "half mountain lion, half human." Sadly, they nixed that idea during reshoots, and now Dryden just has a few Frankenstein scars.solo character posters L3Pheobe Waller-Bridge is L3-37, a droid who serves as a side-kick of sorts to Lando.solo character posters rio

And finally, we saved the best for last. Here's Rio, an alien played by Jon Favreau. We still don't know much about Rio – we've only glimpsed him briefly in a trailer. But if he gets his own character poster, he must have a bigger part to play.
