Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to land in theatres in May, but we still haven’t seen an official trailer or even a poster for the film.
Many fans are expecting the worst from the standalone Han Solo film, but Disney is hoping to win them back with this brand-new synopsis.
Read the official synopsis below:
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
Solo: A Star Wars Story releases in U.S. theaters on May 25, 2018.
While the summary doesn’t reveal anything we didn’t already know, it’s exciting to hear that the film explore an unseen part of the Star Wars universe. Solo: A Star Wars Story will delve into the criminal underworld, which s a corner of the Star Wars universe that hasn’t been thoroughly examined.
The film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, and Paul Bettany. The film will be directed by Ron Howard and was written by Lawrence Kasdan.
