The latest entry in the Star Wars franchise only just dropped, but that doesn’t mean fans aren’t already salivating over any morsel of information about the upcoming movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story.
While I would probably call this a little more than a morsel, the offical Star Wars website has revealed the synopsis for old mate Han‘s upcoming adventure. There’s not a helluva lot there, but it does look like we’ll see the iconic meeting between him and his faithful Wookiee copilot, Chewbacca. Suss it out in full below.
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.
Set in the scoundrel’s younger years, the film is directed by Ron Howard and stars Alden Ehrenreich. While composer John Powell will be writing the score, the legendary John Williams will be creating its theme music, marking his ninth Star Wars film.
The movie is slated for release on May 25, which makes it the first in the franchise to have a non-December release date since Disney took the reigns. They sure are packing them in tight, huh?
