Disney and Lucasfilms released the teaser of ‘Solo: A Star Wars story’ which is the origin story of young Han Solo, a character played by Harrison Ford from 1977 to 2015. Solo is the second part of the anthology set before the events of 1977 first star wars film. 2016 blockbuster Rogue One was the first of the anthology which is running separately from the rest of Star Wars franchise and is moving back in time instead of going in front. Star Wars: The Last Jedi turned out to be a super blockbuster which is adding to the hype of Solo.
Since Solo is set way back in time in a galaxy far far away most of the technology in the film is retro with an assumed set of clothes and bars that aliens would have had years ago. Alden Ehrenreich is revealed as new Han Solo only in the last frame of the teaser where he is sitting inside some sort of a jail. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke will be seen playing an important role in the film as she is the female protagonist while Woody Harrelson will play Han Solo’s mentor.
Screenplay of the film is written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan based on the characters created by George Lucas. Initially Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were directing the film but they left the production in between as the creative terms did not sooth with the producers hence Ron Howard came to the rescue and completed the film. Directorial credit in the film is still very much debatable in terms that will it belong solely to Howard or does he have to share it with Phil and Christopher. Trailer of the film will be launched on Tuesday 6 February and United States release date of the film is announced to be on 25 May as film is mounted as the summer blockbuster.
