Solo: A Star Wars Story gets a synopsis at last

Here’s the official synopsis for Solo: A Star Wars Story

While we wait in hope for a Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer (the film is out in just over four months after all), the powers that be have treated us to the first synopsis for the film:

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.

It’s still quite vague but we would expect nothing else from a Star Wars story. Here’s hoping they will release a trailer soon.

Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca and Woody Harrelson as Beckitt, as well as Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Michael Kenneth Williams and Phoebe Waller-Bridge in unconfirmed roles.

The film is directed by Ron Howard, with a screenplay by Jon Kasdan and Lawrence Kasdan.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is in cinemas from 25 May 2018. Get all the latest sci-fi news with every issue of SciFiNow.
