Solo: A Star Wars Story sneak preview ticket giveaway

But the movie crumbles following Han and the gang's thrilling completion of the legendary Kessel Run. Ding! Deep-cut reference to one of the Lando Calrissian novels? It certainly is going to make an uproar when general audiences see the movie, primarily because it feels so blatantly force fed.

It's plausible this new head honcho is a brand-spanking new character, but other names you might have heard of have now surfaced to the top of the Solo: A Star Wars Story rumors mill.

Director Ron Howard, who helmed the 1988 original, has set the rumour mill off by admitting that now there is "a little talk" about resurrecting the Willow brand.

When is Solo: A Star Wars Story in cinemas?

To put all speculations to rest, scriptwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Jonathan Kasdan finally confirmed the truth. We don't learn much about Han Solo's background that fleshes out or deepens his character, but we sure do learn who gave him his last name. "You know there are things about the movie Willow, as much affection as I have for it and as much affection as fans have for it that, you know, I would love to have a second chance with", he wrote in response to a question about a sequel. They show Han, Lando, Chewie and Qi'ra gathered around a Sabaac table. The two have a history and the young Solo at one point had a close relationship with the vile Hutt clan leader. Rounding out the rest of the supporting cast is Woody Harrelson as Beckett, the criminal mentor to Han, along with Beckett's lover Val (Thandie Newton) and the friendly flying Ardennian Rio Durant, voiced by Jon Favreau.

What works best in "Solo" are the performances, from droids voiced by Jon Favreau and Phoebe Waller-Bridge ("Fleabag") to the utterly charismatic Ehrenreich and Glover.

"Get out of my chair", Ford responded gruffly. Graphic designer Nick Acosta went through the trailer for the Ron Howard-directed spinoff prequel Solo: A Star Wars Story and replaced Ehrenreich's face with that of a young Ford. But never for a "Star Wars" movie. For the entirety of its running time, there's not a Jedi in sight, and the Empire is really more of a brief obstacle for Han to get around. Even throwing them into the corner of a scene where they don't actually interact with anybody, as was done in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, would be awkward. Although, with [director of photography] Bradford Young, there's not a lot of time.
