New Star Wars Han Solo Movie Footage Shows Big Battles And Creepy Creatures

"Becoming Solo."


Ahead of the film's release next month, Disney today released a new featurette for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Titled "Becoming Solo," the video shows delves into things like Han (Alden Ehrenreich) hearing Chewbacca's real name for the first time ("You're gonna need a nickname because I ain't saying that every time," he says), Han being introduced to the Millennium Falcon, and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) being suave. We also see Han up close with a creepy centipede-like creature in a sewer.

Also in the video, director Ron Howard talks about the film's overall ambition; he took over for Chris Miller and Phil Lord, who were fired last year. Additionally, actress Emilia Clarke, who plays Qi'ra, speaks about how the character Han does seemingly stupid things and gets away with them. Check out the video below.

Solo: A Star Wars Story opens on May 25. It also stars Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, along with Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

In other news, Ehrenreich recently let slip that his contract covers three appearances as Han, so we could be seeing more of the actor in the iconic role.

And in wider Star Wars news, 2015's The Force Awakens recently lost its box office record to the recently released Avengers: Infinity War.
