Two new Solo photos, and some insights into Han, Chewie and Lando, from Ron Howard, Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover in Entertainment Weekly’s summer movie preview.
The Star Wars Show brings the star power this week with Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo) and Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian) to talk about Solo.
It’s here! (Again.)
Also released were a series of character posters, which confirm the name of Emilia Clarke’s character as “Qi’ra.”
As predicted, a Solo commercial graced the screens of Super Bowl watchers, and the full trailer will drop on Good Morning America Monday morning.
Head over to Entertainment Weekly for some analysis from Anthony Breznican, who will have some actual reveals for us next week, or below for some (mostly) official stills, including two that aren’t from the trailer.
Donald Glover was at the Television Critics Association for his show Atlanta, and naturally that means Solo questions. He talked about something Ron Howard shot with him as Lando Calrissian, discussed the director drama, and confirmed that capes are in play. (Surprise! Or not.)
A promo image for Solo has emerged from the wilds of the internet, giving us our (presumed) first non-fuzzy look at Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo, Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian, whoever Emilia Clarke is playing and the Millennium Falcon’s new/old paint job. Lucasfilm has asked at least one site to take it down, so chances are it’s legit, though a Lucasfilm rep told /Film that they didn’t create it.
Word on the street is we can expect official promotion for the film to start soon.
Three Star Wars actors won big at the Emmys tonight. The upcoming Han Solo film’s Donald Glover took home two statues for Atlanta – lead actor in a comedy and directing in a comedy. Rogue One’s Riz Ahmed won as lead in a limited series for The Night of. And The Last Jedi’s Laura Dern took supporting actress in a limited series for Big Little Lies.
The night’s biggest genre winner was The Handmaid’s Tale. The dystopia won Best Drama Series and writing, along with lead and supporting wins for Elizabeth Moss and Ann Dowd. Anthology series Black Mirror also took two trophies for the episode “San Junipero.”
Director Ron Howard tweeted that the “wildly impressive” Donald Glover, who’s playing Lando Calrissian, has wrapped on the Han Solo film.
