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.
A new Solo commercial, ‘Risk’ features more Han, Lando, Beckett and the Falcon.
I think they’re getting the hang of this new Expanded Universe.
We’re several years into the new canon now, but it’s been curious to watch how the books (and comics) have changed from our first tentative steps with A New Dawn. It might be no less a balancing act, but it feels like everything is both settling into a rhythm and not afraid to try something new.
Last Shot is the latest example of how the novels are able to both enhance the films (in this case, Solo, mostly) and stand on their own as complete stories.
Empire magazine has two new Solo images today – one of Han during the Vandor heist, and a second of Dryden Vos in his sunny lair. There’s some showpiece-looking Mandalorian armor in the background, because of course there is.
Meanwhile, Jedi News has a nice clear shot of the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit, and Ron Howard is out here with a fuzzy Lando.
The Star Wars Show brings the star power this week with Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo) and Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian) to talk about Solo.
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.

It’s all over at Entertainment Weekly, but here are my highlights.
