The upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly, will give us our first up-close look at Han Solo and Chewbacca on the cover. The issue doesn’t spill all of the beans about the upcoming film, but does give a little more insight into Han’s character in this earlier version of the soon to be Rebellion hero.
“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,” says Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy. “He needs to gain the respect of the people he interacts with, even if they’re the lowest of the low.”
You can expect EW.com to break even more news and information about Solo: A Star Wars Story, later this week. Until then, enjoy the cover photo below…
