New Featurette for 'Solo' Gives a Look at How Han Becomes Han Solo
"We're meeting Han right before he becomes the Han that we know." Disney + Lucasfilm have revealed a fun new "making of" featurette for the Solo: A Star Wars Story movie, directed by Ron Howard. Is it not super exciting that we get to see a new Star Wars movie in less than a month?! This featurette for Solo gives us a quick look at how Han becomes Han Solo, which is essentially what this movie's story is all about. The video features interviews with director Ron Howard, screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, and the principal cast. And I still think Lando might steal the show. Alden Ehrenreich stars as Han Solo, and the film's full cast includes Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Thandie Newton, Warwick Davis, Clint Howard, and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Here we go, bring it on Lucasfilm.
