On Wednesday’s Star Wars Show, writers Lawrence and Jon Kasdan talk the origins of Solo, including some insight into Lando, L3-37, Tobia Beckett and Enfys Nest.
The Star Wars Show brings the star power this week with Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo) and Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian) to talk about Solo.
In USA Today’s summer movie preview, Solo star Alden Ehrenreich reveals the first scene he filmed, and talked about how young Han differs from the Harrison Ford version. We also get a new picture from that sandy location we’ve seen a few times now.
The drama du jour is one that’s a bit more stale than yesterday’s but so much more dramatic: Tony Gilroy on Rogue One. The film was in “terrible, terrible trouble,” he said on The Moment With Brian Koppelman podcast. Continue reading “Tony Gilroy on Rogue One: “It was just a mess””
io9 has the concept art for some of The Last Jedi’s biggest surprises – the stuff that was held back from the art book due to spoilers. There are only a handful of pieces, but they’re some good ones.
StarWars.com has an interview with Joonas Suotamo on taking over Chewbacca full time for The Last Jedi and Solo. He also appeared on the latest Star Wars Show. They also talk to droid builder Lee Towersey.
Rian Johnson and (eventually) Mark Hamill showed up at SXSW for The Director and the Jedi, and you can watch their Q&A, or check out The Hollywood Reporter’s article, which highlights my favorite Rian Johnson quote re: Luke. (The post-screening Q&A is this way.)
If you’re waiting for the Blu-ray, here’s a few more clips: Luke’s struggle, above, plus Mark Hamill and Frank Oz reunite, Paige Tico and the bomber attack and the gorilla walkers. Meanwhile, also check out Mike Ryan’s observations on Johnson’s commentary.
StarWars.com has an interview with puppeteer Brian Herring, one of the BB-8 operators, who also worked with the porgs in The Last Jedi.
A few new behind the scenes clips have emerged since we last checked in. The first, on Kylo’s choice to not kill Leia, features a new priceless quote from Carrie Fisher. The second is on the crystal foxes (err, vulptices), finally giving us a long-awaited look at the actual dog-wearing-straw-costume used to help develop them. And from yesterday, how a Ralph McQuarrie painting from Empire inspired the final showdown and a bit on the red of Crait.
Today’s Star Wars Show features a new deleted scene from The Last Jedi, details on a live Facebook chat with Daisy Ridley, an interview with writer Cavan Scott and a look at a special screening of the Rebels finale.
Excited for Last Shot, the Solo tie-in by Daniel José Older? The official site has the novel’s first excerpt – featuring Han and baby Ben – and an interview with Older.
Last Shot will be out on April 17.
The second part of today’s Solo-vaganza over at Entertainment Weekly is Anthony Breznican’s interview with Alden Ehrenreich, where he gives a little context on Han’s place in the film, a little bit about Harrison Ford’s advice, and his new(/old) pals.
