Lucasfilm’s Lawless Rogues Assemble For Solo: A Star Wars Story Character Posters


Han Solo, Qi’Ra, and the ice-cool Lando Calrissian.

That’s just three of the core characters underpinning Solo: A Star Wars Story, and thanks to Lucasfilm’s latest media dump (spoilers: it’s a raft of sun-kissed character posters), we now have a chance to get acquainted with the rest of the crew, beginning with Woody Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett.

Said to be something of a mentor figure to the young, untrained Han, Harrelson’s infamous crook will no doubt prove instrumental all throughout our smuggler’s origin story. It’s one that involves a daring heist, too, which goes some way to explaining how the likes of Val (Thandie Newton), Dryden Vos (Infinity War‘s Paul Bettany) and Emilia Clarke’ Qi’Ra fit into the plot.

Their mission? We’re not quite sure, but we’d wager it has something to do with the Conveyex and its precious cargo – an action scene that presumably leads to that huge, spherical explosion glimpsed in Solo‘s trailers. Feast thy eyes:

Also of note, Jon Favreau’s CG alien Rio Durant gets a sun-kissed poster of his own, which tells us one of two things. Either Favreau’s pilot holds a pretty prominent role in Solo: A Star Wars Story, or the folks at Lucasfilm are hoping that his character goes on to become the fan-favorite of Ron Howard’s Anthology pic – not unlike the way Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO stole Rogue One back in 2016.

One thing we can tell you with absolute certainty is that Solo: A Star Wars Story appears to be testing quite well ahead of its release next month. Or so says Howard…
