A Longer SOLO Featurette Showcases More Footage of the STAR WARS STORY

Although all the attention might be on the MCU right now thanks to Avengers: Infinity War, in less than a month’s time, Disney will be focusing all our eyes back to that galaxy far, far away with Solo: A Star Wars Story. Although the Han Solo origin story has had one of the more troubled productions in recent memory, the more trailers and TV spots that Lucasfilm drops on the Ron Howard directed movie, the more promising it looks. Now Disney/Lucasfilm have released a new featurette on Solo, on which shows off some footage that hasn’t been seen yet in any trailers or ads thus far.

The new featurette shows more of Han’s homeworld Corellia, home of the Imperial shipyards, where all the Star Destroyers are constructed. Remember in A New Hope when Han says “I’m not talking about the local bulk cruisers, I’m talking about the big Corellian ships now” when referencing the Star Destroyers? Now we’ll finally see Corellia firsthand. We also see what looks like Han in some kind of military operation. Could this be the battle where Han abandons the Empire and frees Chewbacca from slavery? This featurette reveals that we’ll  definitely will see where everyone’s favorite Wookiee gets his nickname from.

Solo cast member and sometime Mother of Dragons, Emila Clarke, who plays Han Solo’s childhood friend Qi’ra in the film, sums up why she, and most of us, loves the character of Han Solo so much, even after 40 years on screen: “He does these stupid things that should never work, but they do.” Yup, that’s pretty much it.

Are you on board for Solo, or are you checked out of Star Wars till Episode IX comes out next year? Be sure to let us know your thoughts down below in the comments.
