The next chapter in the new Star Wars run at Disney goes back to tell the tale of the early days of Han Solo’s criminal career, as he teams up with a veteran thief, his former love interest and future allies Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian to pull a seemingly impossible heist for a major crime syndicate.
Probably due to a variety of factors and some big competition at the box office, Solo did not perform up to the expectations of Disney over the holiday weekend, making far less than any of it’s predecessors in the new wave of Star Wars films.
Han Solo and his partner Chewbacca join a criminal crew being assembled by a dangerous underworld figure in the upcoming Star Wars Story prequel, Solo, arriving in May.
After lots of messy and public behind the scenes drama, our first look at Solo, the next “Star Wars Story”, is here as Alden Ehrenreich takes on the iconic role in a prequel that finds the young smuggler joining a crew for a job that includes Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian.
