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 full Solo trailer is here, with more on Han, Chewbacca, Lando, Qi’ra, L3-37 and our first look at Paul Bettany’s Dryden Vos.
Tickets aren’t going on sale tonight, but it can’t be long now. Head under the cut for a look at the new poster and some stills from, the trailer.
A new set of Solo posters has turned up in Brazil, featuring the same artwork but without the title frame. It seems likely that this could be a reaction to the recent claims that the original design was (quite blatantly) based on a set of 2015 album covers from Sony – or it could be that the title down there – Han Solo – doesn’t lend itself to the original treatment. In any case, I wouldn’t be surprised to see future waves of U.S. posters more closely resemble these.
→ Jon Favreau will be voicing “a very cool & important alien character” in Solo, per Ron Howard. This is his second time doing a GFFA voice – he previously played Pre Vizsla in The Clone Wars.
→ The official site has also posted all those new pictures from Entertainment Weekly – sans the annoying watermarks.
Head under the cut for a full look at that new poster.
New footage spotted! A brief look at Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico in action is a highlight of a spot for EDF Energy (okay…), while General Organa and Poe have a great exchange in a new commercial. (Another recent spot features new Finn footage!)
There’s also a great profile of Tran at Buzzfeed which is definitely worth a read. She talks about her background, Harry Potter, and Carrie Fisher in the gym. She teases that Rose has “has an interesting relationship with war.” She’s also one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen Talent picks.
StarWars.com and Disney XD have released the key art/poster for the upcoming fourth season of Star Wars Rebels, which debuts October 16. Meanwhile, XD has put up descriptions for the first 6 episodes. Check out both under the cut.
Lucasfilm has blessed us with even more porg concept art by Jake Lunt. So expressive. I love them.
→ Leak watch: A new vehicle was spotted, and it reveals the name of the planet Canto Bight is on. (It’s a pretty goofy name, perfectly matched to a very looking vehicle, but that’s Star Wars for you.)
→ Also leaked – though I can’t even begin to tell you where exactly it originated online – is a new still of Carrie Fisher in Leia’s cape costume.
→ Making Star Wars shares some sketch recreations of two of the posters that Jason saw back around SDCC.
→ Much has been made of this John Boyega interview and his Carrie Fisher comments, but I do believe he’s speaking metaphorically. There’s another one over here, and also some Gwendoline Christie. Vagueness for all!
Making Star Wars has some new info that is sure to launch (relaunch?) some new Snoke theories. It’s about his appearance, and backed up, for the most part, by recent Lego leaks.
It’s here! The behind-the-scenes reel for The Last Jedi gives us a peek at the production, and a LOT of new things, or at least, things we’ve heard about…
As revealed on this week’s Star Wars Show, the Barnes & Noble edition of Aftermath: Empire’s End will come with posters featuring Norra Wexley and Grand Admiral Rae Sloane. Also, more Rogue One behind-the-scenes action with Pablo Hidalgo, and Ando chats with the film’s co-producer, John Swartz.
