Character Posters For Solo: A Star Wars Story Reveal Emilia Clarke’s Qi’Ra And The Titular Smuggler


Smuggler, scoundrel, nerf-herder – three words one would typically associate with the great Han Solo. And in light of Disney’s two-part trailer showcase for Solo: A Star Wars Story, we’re tempted to add ‘superstar’ to the Lucasfilm lexicon.

Amidst Big Game teasers for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Mission: Impossible – Fallout, the Mouse House rolled out the long-anticipated preview for Solo, Ron Howard’s Star Wars anthology flick that’s now only three-and-a-half months out from release. And May 25th can’t come soon enough.

Whether it’s the A-list cast or the rat-a-tat pacing, Solo has arguably made a good first impression with its trailer footage, while Bradford Young’s cinematography imbues the film with a bleak, gritty color palette – one that fits the title character like a glove. Speaking of which, you’ll be able to catch another peek at the hero made famous by Harrison Ford down below, along with posters for Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), Qi’Ra (Emilia Clarke) and the world’s most famous Wookiee, Chewbacca.

Similar to Rogue One before it, much of Solo: A Star Wars Story takes place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, while we expect to check in on Alden Ehrenreich’s smuggler between the ages of 18 and 24. It’s within this window of time that Han encounters Chewie and Lando – two mainstays of the Star Wars saga – along with a whole ensemble of famous faces.
