New ‘Solo’ international trailer, poster keep the focus on Han Solo, Chewbacca and the Falcon

Lucasfilm and Disney has released a new look at  Solo: A Star Wars Story in the form of new poster and new international poster.

The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as a younger version of the titular Star Wars character made iconic by Harrison Ford, and charts his early adventures as he first crosses paths with Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) and the Millennium Falcon first comes to be in his possession.

Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke also star: Clarke plays Qui’Ra and Harrelson, a scoundrel…a mentor of sorts.

Some fans are troubled by the Harrison Ford exit and passing of the torch to the young cast. Ford doesn’t seem to mind, stating in a recent interview how he felt about “passing the Star Wars baton” and this was his blunt response:

“I don’t know that I thought of it that way at all. I was there to die. And I didn’t really give a rat’s ass who got my sword.”

Slash Film perfectly summarized the drama behind the film: “Solo arrives under the cloud of a troubled production. The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street helmers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were originally hired to direct the film, but after months of shooting, the duo were fired after clashing with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. Ron Howard then came in to take over. Since then, rumors have stated that Howard reshot a huge chunk of the film, while some people involved with the production – including co-star Thandie Newton – suggest that a large amount of what Lord and Miller shot remains.”

Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan wrote the screenplay. Solo also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca) with Paul Bettany has been added as a character that Michael Kenneth Williams was expected to play, but instead of being a motion-capture alien, he’ll be a real person.

Solo: A Star Wars Story releases in U.S. theaters on May 25, 2018
