We’ve only gotten a glimpse of the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story movie, but it gave us a small idea of what the tone of the film will be. The Ron Howard directed story film will show us the depth behind Han Solo and his crew and why they are, the way they are. We’ll get to see Han meet Chewbacca, and even get a look at his acquirement of the Millennium Falcon. How cool is that?
Entertainment Tonight was able to chat a bit with Donald Glover, who plays the younger Lando Calrissian. When asked about the movie, he said it will be the most fun entry in the series. His statement is drawn from the fact that we already know what happens to the main characters.
We were introduced to Han Solo, Chewie, Lando, and others in the original trilogy, but we never knew how they got there exactly. That is what this movie will help clear up. Glover said:
I think it’s just a lot more fun,. All the Star Wars [movies] are really fun but I think this movie, we know what’s going to happen, we know they’re not going to die, ya know… We know, kind of, what happens, but how we got there, I guess, is the crux of it.
Without that thought burdening our minds throughout the film, he says it’ll be more about the fun this time around. This also allowed the cast to enjoy it more, which I’m sure will show in their performance. Glover also talked on how this time around, the movie is less about the lineage of anyone, and more about the characters in an individual sense.
Making a statement saying that Solo: A Star Wars Story will be the most fun of all the Star Wars films is quite the bold move but Glover is quite confident and very excited. Like him, we’re all stoked to see him join forces with the infamous smuggler and take on the galaxy. What are you most excited to see in Solo: A Star Wars Story? Let us know over at SuperBroMovies!
