After being appointed at the end of June, he immediately started shooting and reshooting in early July 2017. And, as a result, this film project was able to be completed on time. And it will be broadcast starting this Wednesday.
Btw, regarding the selection of the title Solo, which is quite simple, it seems, Lucasfilm has deliberately labeled Star Wars splinter films with the addition of “A Star Wars Story”. Just like its first spin-off: Rogue One (2016). The title is both followed by “A Star Wars Story”. Which is very successful in the market. Which earned revenues of USD 1.026 billion globally.
As the title implies, the film Solo: A Star Wars Story tells the story of Han Solo in his youth. When he was still a delinquent and intergalactic smuggler. Long before he met Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker. In addition, this spin-off film will also reveal how Han Solo met his flagship co-pilot: Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo). And his best friend: Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). The setting is long before Rogue One and Star Wars: A New Hope.
In the last trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, which was released last April, Chewbacca was seen with another Wookie. Likely, it was his wife: Mallatobuck. In the novel version, Chewie does have a family. Which, in the end, he left. For the sake of fully devoted to Han Solo.
In addition, what is also interesting, when there is a scene of Chewbacca chatting with Han Solo and Lando Calrissian on the plane, it is revealed that his age is, in fact, 190 years old! Chewie then joins Han Solo in the team formed by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson). Possibly, to carry out a heist mission. aka intergalactic theft.
To carry out the task of Tobias Beckett, Han Solo needs a fast spaceship. This is where Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) plays an important role. In the trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the girl from Planet Corellia can be seen contacting Lando Calrissian. As the owner of the Millennium Falcon. Who is also the best smuggler in the entire galaxy.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will indeed tell the story of the beginning of Han Solo having the Millennium Falcon. In order to seize the ship from Lando Calrissian, he must bet all his money in sabacc. Namely, a kind of Star Wars-style space poker card game. However, it is still not clear where they play. At first glance, similar to the Mos Eisley Cantina.
In the previous Star Wars films, when it became the property of Han Solo, the Millennium Falcon did look dirty and slovenly. The conditions are much different from when the plane was still owned by Lando Calrissian. In the trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the inside of the plane is white. Very clean and luxurious.
In addition, in the Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer, there is also a scene where the Millennium Falcon maneuvers agilely while avoiding the TIE Fighter and giant tentacles. All Star Wars fans must know, Han Solo once claimed the Falcon as the fastest plane in the galaxy.
