Here’s the plot of new Han Solo film Solo: A Star Wars Story
The plot of the latest film in the Star Wars universe has been unveiled.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is a new film centred around loveable smuggler Han Solo and is scheduled for release in May this year.
Despite the release date being so soon, there’s not really been a lot of information released to the public about the new film. Thankfully, the first official Disney synopsis for the film was finally posted online yesterday.
The film will focus on the first adventure of best friends Han Solo and Chewbacca as they join forces for the first time when they encounter a crooked gambler. As one might expect, this all takes place in the depths of the criminal underworld – so it’ll probably be a lot of fun.
The official synopsis reads: “Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future co-pilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.”
The new film is directed by multi-Academy Award winner Ron Howard and will star Alden Ehrenreich in the titular role. Donald Glover will play Lando, while big names Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emilia Clarke, Paul Bettany and Thandie Newton will also make appearances.
