It’s time to board the Millennium Falcon and take a journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

A 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 co-pilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course for one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

The film is directed by Ron Howard and produced by Lucasfilm, from a screenplay by Jonathan and Lawrence Kasdan.

It is the second of the Star Wars anthology films, following 2016’s Rogue One. A stand-alone instalment set prior to the events of A New Hope.
