According to an interview with Nerdist, Jon Favreau's planned Star Wars TV series is set to fill some of those narrative gaps as it takes place several years before the events of The Force Awakens. Are you ready for a new branch in the tree of Star Wars?
Fans have been waiting in anticipation for the lates Lucas film, and some have been waiting on Hollywood Blvd. since early this morning to get a glimpse at all the glitz and glam Disney had to offer at tonight's premiere.
Still, excitement for the film is growing, and United Kingdom fans will get to see Solo: A Star Wars Story a day earlier than other locations, after Disney revealed Howard's spin-off movie will now be released on May 24, one day earlier than originally planned. "I'm only one opinion". Solo: A Star Wars Story opens May 25 and features a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) when he first meets Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). They're joined by Thandie Newton as Val, Phoebe Waller-Bridge L3-37, Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos and Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett.
Emilia Clarke, who plays Qi'Ra, said of the "Star Wars" saga: "This is so treasured and loved and beloved, and I'm just incredibly honored to be a part of it".
Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in five "Star Wars" films, also attended the premiere, as did Billy Dee Williams, who portrayed Calrissian in "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi".
One of those present was a talented writer, director, and actor John Favreau, lately of Marvel involvement and recently tasked with taking on an upcoming (unnamed) Star Wars live-action television series.
No matter what Lucasfilm and John Favreau decide, we all should be grateful for more Star Wars content.
