First SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Stills Feature All The Major Characters As New Plot Details Are Revealed

The first official batch of images from Solo: A Star Wars Story have been released and they offer a much better look at the movie's characters and key moments which are accompanied by fresh plot details.

On Sunday/Monday, we finally got our first look at Solo: A Star Wars Story. The trailer's debut had become something of a joke online, with many people wondering if we were ever going to see footage from the spinoff (the prevailing theory was that it would ultimately debut with the movie itself). 

Now, it seems the curtain is finally being pulled back on the movie as following the debut of that awesome Entertainment Weekly cover, we now have the first official batch of stills from Solo

You can check those out here and if you've been on the fence about the movie up until now, these may very well help change your minds. All you need to do is click on either one of the buttons below for the full gallery and to check out some interesting new plot details about what's to come when Solo debuts.




Alden Ehrenreich is playing a version of Han Solo several years before we met him in the Mos Eisley cantina in A New Hope and he reveals just how much of a difference those years make to the character. "I think the main thing that’s different is that the Han we meet in this film is more of an idealist. He has certain dreams that he follows, and we watch how it affects him as those dreams meet new realities — realities that are harder and more challenging than he’d expected."
 


"Yeah, we are playing a game of sabacc," explains Donald Glover when asked about the scene above. "A lot of it, you know?" As for whether or not we'll get to see the infamous game which saw Lando Calrissian lose the Millennium Falcon to Han Solo, all the actor would say is: "We are getting a taste of that. How good is Lando? How good is Han?" It seems we'll just have to wait and see!
 


Is Solo secretly a bromantic tale? "To me, this is a love story between Han and Chewie," explains co-writer Jon Kasdan. "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." So, it sounds like there will still be some laughs even without Phil Lord and Chris Miller!
 


Apparently, Han grows up with one friend in the form of "fellow cast-off" Q'ira, played by Game of Thrones star Elimia Clarke. "She has a couple of guises, but essentially she is just fighting to stay alive. 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 question is, where was she in the original trilogy?
 


Apparently, Han and Chewie will indeed be involved in some sort of heist in the movie but Lucasfilm won't reveal anything about what's on board on this train. However, it is, in fact, known as "the Conveyex."
 


Woody Harrelson is indeed playing a criminal called Tobias Beckett in the movie and he's planned a daring heist in a bid to up his status in the Galaxy. He also serves as a mentor to Han. "He’s a powerful criminal, but a free agent," reveals director Ron Howard. "Tobias Beckett really shapes Han more than anybody, as Han comes to believe that in a lawless time, he needs a moral code."
 


Asked why the front of the Millennium Falcon looks different, Ron Howard wouldn't reveal anything but did say: "I wonder what that could be? You’ll have to see. The Falcon is a character in the movie, without a doubt. That machine is a defining factor in Han’s future. Every aspect of this movie moves, shifts, and transforms in very interesting and yet plausible ways."
 


The interesting thing about this photo is that it's set on Mimban, a planet which was the setting of 1978 novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye. That revolved around Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia being stranded on that muddy planet while Darth Vader searched for them but it's no longer canon. However, it will be interesting seeing if we get any sort of Easter Eggs relating to that! 
 


L3-37 is indeed going to be played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and it's now been confirmed that her name is a reference to "leet," the practice of replacing certain letters in words with similar numbers.
