Walt Disney Studios has released the first plot synopsis from the upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story” while one of the film’s co-stars, “Fleabag” actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge, has spoken some more about the film.
First up, the new story breakdown which says: “Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.”
Ron Howard helms the film, taking over from directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller who shot much of the movie before being fired by Lucasfilm. Waller-Bridge was asked by UK IGN recently what sort of impact the transition between directors had on the cast. She said:
“The handover there was done with such warmth and generosity from everybody, and Ron’s just a master at his craft; he’s going to make a beautiful film out of it. You just really trust him and it was just really exciting to work with him. I mean, it would’ve been exciting to just pass him in a corridor, let alone for him to be parachuted in to the film you’re working on. We’d done some really, really great stuff with Chris and Phil that everyone was really thrilled with, and I think a lot of that will still be in it.”
Despite being a little over four months away, there still has yet to be a single official photo or trailer from the film. “Solo: A Star Wars Story” is coming to cinemas on May 25th.
