AceShowbiz - After releasing the first teaser, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is previewed in some new photos. Making their way out via Entertainment Weekly, they feature major characters of the film, including Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), who are seen hanging onto dear life to the Conveyex in one of the images.
In another picture, the duo are seen piloting a spaceship. They are also featured having a talk with Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) inside Millennium Falcon in another photo. Another snap shows Han with charming Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke ), who has known Han Solo longer than anyone, according to the site.
There's also a look at Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) and his sidekick L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge). Another image features Mudtroopers on Mimban.
Alden Ehrenreich takes over the role of Han Solo from Harrison Ford, who was secretly involved in the making of the new movie. Ehrenreich says they sat down for lunch in January last year, and the veteran actor told him, "Tell them I told you everything you needed to know, and that you can't tell anyone."
While Ehrenreich can't share Ford's advice for him, Lucasfilm president and "Solo" producer Kathleen Kennedy reveals, "What [Ford] did so beautifully for Alden was he talked a lot about what he remembered when he first read 'Star Wars', and what George had done with Han. Who the character was and the conversations he had for so many years with George about how that character developed. He gave Alden that kind of insight which was invaluable. There were several times in the course of making the movie where Alden would actually recount some of the things that Harrison had pointed out. I think that was really, really helpful to him."
Directed by Ron Howard who took over the helming duty from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller midway through the production, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is described as 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 is set to open wide in theaters across the nation on May 25.
