Standalone 'Star Wars' film about Lando Calrissian in the works

And while it's consistent with what we know about the character, Solo doesn't really add anything new that's crucial to our understanding of Han Solo, nor does it unlock anything that sheds new light on the older films. A stand-alone installment, set prior to the events of the original 1977 film, it explores the adventures of a young Han Solo and Chewbacca, including meeting Lando Calrissian.
There were fears that the Disney/Lucasfilm empire couldn't pull Solo off, because original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) were abruptly fired over "creative differences" past year, necessitating major reshoots of the story by Howard, and there had been other rumours of on-set tensions.
The video [see below] starts off with a shot of Han (Alden Ehrenreich) hanging his lucky dice on a speeder auto.
Deadpool 2 is not the only big movie to be released in May because later this month Disney will be releasing Solo: A Star Wars Story. Solo's set-up follows that formula, but without the universe-altering mythology of the ancient battle between Jedi and Sith.
Solo saves the worst for last, with a awful third act that recalls one of those hack thrillers from the late-1990s in which there's five or six earth-shattering plot twists within minutes of each other. This extended sequence calls to mind the westerns, serials, and World War II movies that all helped inspire George Lucas's original Star Wars. An opening text note informs us that "it is a lawless time" in the galaxy far, far away, which means anything could happen and does, which makes for a nice change from the usual "blowing up the Death Star" routine.
Somehow, Solo is able to pack in several surprises.
Total Film reckons that it's "far better than we had any right to expect". How do you portray one of Hollywood's most iconic performances with a completely different actor? The budding partnership between he and Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) feels perfectly paced and earned, both orphans of a corrupt empire searching for a place. Han is warned early on by Woody Harrelson's Tobias to "assume everyone will betray you... then you won't be disappointed". "I'm not entirely sure about Emilia Clarke, but that mostly because Qi'ra - who comes back into the movie - is such an unknown quantity".
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25. It was clear from the moment we met the fully-formed Han Solo in Episode IV that this was a rough-and-tumble hustler; literally seeing where he came from doesn't tell us much more about Han as a character than we already knew, so why spend so much time on it? Prior to the film scoring that official release date, and before so much as a behind-the-scenes snap or set video was released, some fans anxious whether the movie would live up to its Star Wars saga predecessors. More exciting were the references to things from The Clone Wars and nods to what's to come in Star Wars Rebels, which are there if you're looking for them.
