‘Solo A Star Wars Story’ Update: new posters, Chewie’s line are scripted, romance in the film

Just weeks away from another Star Wars film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, has fans excited, so let’s catch on some recent events and news surrounding the film. There are a couple of new posters as well, UK and Japan, check them out at the bottom.

Despite the language barrier between fans and Chewbacca, the two hundred year old Wookiee has remained a fan-favourite since Star Wars debuted back in 1977.

Writers, Lawrence Kasdan and Jonathan Kasdan recently revealed how the Wookiee’s dialogue is handled in scripts during an appearance on The Star Wars Show. Jonathan Kasdan explained that in the film’s script they actually write out Chewie’s lines.

“In this script, we wrote every one of Chewie’s lines. We wanted Alden (Ehrenreich), who was playing Han, to know what was being said to him. So he would know what to play, regardless of what he interpreted from the moan.”

Lawrence Kasdan recently discussed with Empire that he perceives Solo: A Star Wars Story as a romance, of sorts.

“It’s a love story. Obviously, they don’t automatically trust each other and become friends. But that’s all the meat of a good story.

“To me, this is a love story between Han and Chewie. Their relationship has always been my favorite part of the saga, and the fact that only Han understands what Chewie is saying, I find a very funny possibility for comedy … Wookiees have so many positive qualities. But what they don’t do is make it easy for you to get in.”

Check out the video clip below.

Ehrenreich is joined by Donald Glover as a dashing, younger version of Lando Calrissian as well as Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke also star: Clarke plays Qui’Ra and Harrelson, a scoundrel…a mentor of sorts named Tobias Beckett.

Solo also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca) while Paul Bettany has been added as a character that Michael Kenneth Williams was expected to play – Dryden Vos.

Thandie Newton is playing a key character named Val with these other actors onboard: Clint Howard, Jon Favreau voice an alien, Warwick Davis playing Fight Droid 2, Lily Newmark who may be Enfys Nest) and Kamil Lemieszewski as Dryden Skipper.

Ron Howard is directing after inheriting a mess from The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street helmers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

Solo: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters on May 25, 2018
