“It’s true. All of it.”
This past week brought the first teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the somewhat controversial look into the history of the films' smuggler. Now, Entertainment Weekly has some new pictures and details on the film.
One key element, of course, will be the meeting between a young Han Solo and Wookiee Chewbacca. "To me, this is a love story between Han and Chewie," says director Ron Howard. "Their relationship has always been my favourite part of the saga, and the fact that only Han understands what Chewie is saying, I find a very funny possibility for comedy."
Han grows up on the mean streets of the galaxy with one friend, a fellow cast-off, Qi’ra, played by Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, who becomes this galactic noir’s mystery woman.
“She has a couple of guises, but essentially she is just fighting to stay alive,” Clarke tells EW. In other words, don’t be fooled by her character’s elegant facade. “If you’ve got a really glamorous lady in a really sordid environment, you kind of know the glamour is hiding a few rough roads.”
The film stars Emilia Clarke as Qi'Ra, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett, Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos and Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo.
