New ‘Becoming Solo’ Featurette Released

“The Star Wars universe that we see in Solo is different from anything we’ve seen in any previous Star Wars movies,” proudly states director Ron Howard. The new Solo featurette from Disney, released on Sunday, April 29th, gives viewers an even more in-depth look into the upcoming film to debut on May 25th.

Starring Alden Ehrenreich in the titular role, Solo: A Star Wars Story ventures to tell the origin story of Han Solo: pilot, smuggler, and scoundrel. This new featurette shows off some gorgeous scenes of Han piloting the Millennium Falcon, meeting his buddy for life, Chewbacca, and playing what appears to be the fateful game of Sabacc in which he wins the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian, as portrayed by Donald Glover. The trailers for Solo have thus far left many audiences with a tentative and perhaps even lukewarm curiosity, with some fans even outright dismissing it. However, for hardcore Star Wars fans, with a thirst to learn more about their favorite Corellian con man, the movie looks like it will deliver an insightful and wild ride.

Check out the featurette below, and let us know what you think about Solo in the comments.
