solo: a star wars story explained

[96] On October 17, 2017, Howard announced that principal photography had been completed, and revealed the title of the film.

John Saavedra is an Associate Editor at Den of Geek. [61] In July, Lucasfilm announced that an anthology film focusing "on how [a] young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley"[62] would be released on May 25, 2018. (No, his brother has yellow skin, not red.

[150] While also praising the rest of the cast, Stephanie Zacharek of Time singled Glover out particularly, highlighting his "unruly, charismatic elegance". Fans have already seen the final fateful duel between Darth Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Qi'ra kills Vos and sends Han after Beckett. They bribe an Imperial officer with stolen starship fuel, known as coaxium, for passage on a transport, but Qi'ra is captured before she can board. [45] Additionally, Anthony Daniels cameos as Tak, enslaved alongside Chewbacca,[46] Kiran Shah plays Karjj and Warwick Davis briefly reprises his role from The Phantom Menace as Weazel, a Cloud Rider.

He also became ruler of Mandalore. I hope to honor the great work already done and help deliver on the promise of a Han Solo film. [63][64] In May 2016, Lawrence Kasdan stated that filming would start in January 2017. The following month, Williams recorded the demos with the Recording Arts Orchestra of Los Angeles at the Newman Scoring Stage. [114], Solo: A Star Wars Story grossed $213.8 million in the United States and Canada, and $179.4 million in other territories, for a total worldwide gross of $393.2 million. It turns out that they aren't criminals but freedom fighters battling against the Crimson Dawn syndicate. "[152] In other interviews, he complimented other aspects of the film, including Glover's perceptions of Lando's gender fluidity: "That kid is brilliant!

[108] Powell interpolated Williams' new theme into his score, as well as incorporating music by Williams from previous Star Wars films, including the Star Wars main title, and several motifs and cues from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and The Phantom Menace. Because a lot of people must need explanations. Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) pretended to split, but he was really working with Vos and revealed Han's plan to trick him with fake coaxium. Lucasfilm also felt the directors were encouraging too much improvisation from the actors, which was believed to be "shifting the story off-course" from the Kasdans' script. Follow him on Twitter @johnsjr9.

Han suggests a risky plan to steal unrefined coaxium from the mines on Kessel; Vos approves but insists that Qi'ra accompany the team.

Immediately, this scene not only atones for that but also brings back some age-old Han trickery; he can't beat Beckett in combat, so uses cunning and knowledge of his opponent to best him another way, linking the lesson he's learned about thinking ahead in Solo: A Star Wars Story to his actions in the original film.

If you’re wondering how this is possible, remember that Maul survived his defeat at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi through sheer force of will. This allowed the actors to have a visual reference for the scene. After Han and his crew manage to get the coaxium safely to the refinery, they are ambushed by Enfys Nest and her gang. They wouldn’t allow a cameo just for the sake of a cameo, right? [50] Dee Tails[51] appears as Quay Tolsite, the director of the Pyke Syndicate's operations on Kessel. By the time of Solo‘s setting, the Shadow Collective is no more, but clearly Darth Maul is again leading something similar. [110] The film debuted in selected countries on May 23 and had its US release on May 25, 2018, the 41st anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars film, in which Harrison Ford first appeared as Han Solo. "[146], For the New York Post, Johnny Oleksinski gave the film one star out of a possible four, writing that while Glover was "amusing" in his role, Ehrenreich was "given an impossible task: to make us forget about Harrison Ford, easily the most iconic action hero in modern cinema".

[175] Rita Dorsch of Comic Book Resources said that, by far, the most interesting part of Solo is Qi’ra’s turn and that any follow-up film needs to focus on her.

They travel to Vos's yacht where Han finds Qi'ra, who has joined Crimson Dawn as Vos's top lieutenant. [122] After its first day of pre-sales, Fandango announced the film was the second-best seller of advance tickets in 2018, after Avengers: Infinity War.

Was that his brother or something? Both were fired in June 2017 following "creative differences" with Lucasfilm, and Howard was hired as their replacement. In December 2017, Williams wrote two musical pieces and combined them to create Han's theme. Of course, some don’t actually need a theatrical follow-up.

[116] Many analysts and publications, including Deadline, The Atlantic, Entertainment Weekly and CNN, interpreted the low box office returns as a case of "Star Wars fatigue", since Solo was the fourth film of the series released in 29 months, and came just five months after The Last Jedi. Lando cheats to win but agrees to join the mission in exchange for a share of the profits. #May25", "SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY - The Art of VFXThe Art of VFX", "How big screens and small explosions shaped the VFX of Solo: A Star Wars Story", "DESIGNING SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, PART 1: MAKING LANDO'S MILLENNIUM FALCON", "Inside SOLO's Millennium Falcon: Old School Meets New School", "Take a ride through Solo: A Star Wars Story's Oscar-nominated Kessel Run visual effects", "John Powell to Score Untitled Han Solo Movie", "Solo: A Star Wars Story Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Available May 25th", "Super Bowl Trailers: 'Avengers' Rules Social Media, 'Solo' Dominates on YouTube", "What Does the Han Solo Movie Want to Be?

[8], It was reported that Ron Howard, who had previously collaborated with Lucas as an actor in American Graffiti (1973) and the director of Willow (1988), was a frontrunner to step in as director. Thanks to a terrific cast & extraordinary folks behind the camera as well.

[56][57] In 2012, Lucas began developing a film about a young Solo, and hired veteran Star Wars screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan to write the screenplay.

[1][2], A "sneak peek" TV spot was released during Super Bowl LII on February 4, 2018. [115][116], A week after its worldwide debut of just $147.5 million, Variety wrote that the film would lose Disney "tens of millions of dollars" off a projected final total gross of $400–450 million[117] while The Hollywood Reporter estimated the losses would range from $50 to $80 million. He's covered a wide range of movies and TV shows - from digging out obscure MCU Easter eggs to diving deep into deeper meanings of arthouse fare - and has covered a litany of set visits, junkets and film festivals. He didn’t even have reason to ask who the guy with a red face and horned head was at the end of Solo, because to him Darth Maul is just another character he’s seeing for the first time in this movie. But while there’s a lot of laughing, careless flying through a maelstrom, and some pretty high stakes gambling, Han doesn’t complete his first adventure across the galaxy without a bit of heartbreak.

But the double-crossing (quintuple-crossing by now, surely?) Solo: A Star Wars Story is the kind of movie that might attract newbies to the Star Wars franchise. [88][91] Two days later, it was announced that Howard would take over directing for the remaining three-and-a-half weeks of scheduled principal photography as well as the scheduled five weeks of reshoots. Solo: A Star Wars Story reveals hidden details of Han's past - and the galaxy at large. [101] Bredow described working on the train heist scene as a challenge.
