EW Reveals New Stills and Character Information for Solo: A Star Wars Story

Published

on

Even more Solo: A Star Wars Story news coming from EW today. Now the site has revealed several new images from the film, which you can see them all here, and revealed some character details.

EW had this to say about the title character and a little about the other characters in the film, including the name of Paul Bettany’s character…

“He might be a little more immature, he may be a little less experienced, and he may hone his cynicism over time, but he’s very wary,” she says. “He needs to gain the respect of the people he interacts with, even if they’re the lowest of the low.”

Along the way he will befriend “walking carpet” Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), fall head over heels for shadowy Qui’ra (Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke), and cross paths with Lando Calrissian (Atlanta’s Donald Glover stepping into the cape of Billy Dee Williams) and his droid sidekick L3-37 (played via motion capture by Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge.)

The wannabe smuggler will also face career crooks Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), blaster-toting Val (Thandie Newton), and crime boss Dryden Vos (played by Paul Bettany).

If you’re trying to figure out who’s good and who’s bad, you’re not alone. “I think that’s exactly what Han’s trying to do throughout the film,” Ehrenreich says.

What Did Rian Johnson Think of Solo: A Star Wars Story?

Rian Johnson

With the red carpet premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story behind us, first thoughts about the film are starting to hit the Internet. One of the bigger names revealing their thoughts on the film is Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. Some fans will read his comments as nothing more than a Disney shill, while others might actually respect them (depends on which side of the fence you are on regarding The Last Jedi), and you have your right to those opinions.

Either way, you can check out his thoughts that he left on Imgur below!

Rian Johnson’s thoughts

You can read his comments below…

Donald Glover is great in it, but duh. Alden is terrific, he’s not doing a Harrison Ford impersonation but he brings his own charm and swagger to the character. The big surprise for me was Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Bridge-Waller?) who has a few of the funniest moments I’ve ever seen in a Star Wars movie. I had never watched Fleabag (I know, I know, I need to watch it — I’m loving Killing Eve but she’s not in that, she only wrote it) so it was a pleasant surprise. The action scenes are true great. But who’s going to read this and take me seriously? I’d like to think I’d still be honest but it’s not like you’re going to come to my Instagram story for hard-edged film criticism on a Star Wars movie. See it though, it’s super fun. I should get back to writing. Jesus, what have I typed.
