But that was a long roadway. The brand-new standalone movie Solo: A Star Wars Story journeys back to his more youthful days when faith was more difficult to come by– partially due to the fact that everybody he understood truly was a phony or burglar.
As part of EW’s cover story about the May 25 motion picture, we have brand-new images from movie. Here’s a much deeper dive into exactly what they reveal and exactly what the movie will expose about the man who invested a life showing that numerous wrongs do make a.
Punch it, Chewie!

“To me, this is a love story between Han and Chewie,” he states. “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.”
