Solo is out today on digital, and we’ve had a wealth of behind the scenes info the last few days. Head under the cut for more on Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s L3-37, puppeteer Brian Herring, and co-writer Jon Kasdan.
Two more cut scenes from Solo today! The first, via Entertainment Weekly, is Han as a TIE trainee, and his subsequent trial that led him to Mimban. The second, a snowball fight on Vandor, debuts on The Star Wars Show, which also features a Ray Park interview:
In a StarWars.com interview, Solo composer John Powell talks about scoring the film (including ‘Chicken in the Pot,’ Enfys Nest and the famed Kessel Run) and working with John Williams.
The week begins with the Solo junior novelization, and ends with Solo itself on digital, with some comics in-between.
Lucasfilm releases our first official photos of Solo’s Maul, and Ray Park talks about returning to his most famous role (and dropping hints on Instagram), in Forbes.
USA Today has our first cut scene from Solo. Taken from early in the film, it features Han (Alden Ehrenreich) and Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) on the run from Lady Proxima’s guards, where they take a brief refuge in – eww – a vat of eels.
This week we have the Solo novelization and two comics. Tuesday, September 4 brings Mur Lafferty’s Solo: A Star Wars Story: Expanded Edition. And on Wednesday, September 5, you can pick up Star Wars #53 and Doctor Aphra Annual #2 (variant).
There’s a quick glimpse at a Solo deleted scene – and concept art of another – in the book trailer for next week’s Solo: A Star Wars Story: Expanded Edition.
The novelization, written by Mur Lafferty, will be out in hardcover and eBook on September 4.
StarWars.com has our first excerpt from Mur Lafferty’s Solo novelization, set during Han’s time with the Empire.
This week’s Star Wars Show also features concept artist Stephen Zavala and an interview with ILM’s Rob Bredow, who’s responsible for the upcoming Making Solo: A Star Wars Story. Naturally our first making-of book of the Disney era is for its most troubled production.
