To mark tonight’s opening of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Disney has released a new featurette for the film. The upcoming spinoff shows Han Solo in his early days as he gets out of the slums on Corellia and works to join a crew of thieves as they make a daring heist.
In this featurette, cast members Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, and Woody Harrelson talk about their outlaw characters, and how the film shows Han’s introduction to the professional underworld. It’s a light bit of a marketing, but it’s probably enough to get people even more excited to see the movie if they’ve got their tickets purchased for tonight’s screenings.
Check out the Solo featurette below. The film also stars Thandie Newton, Joonas Suotamo, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Paul Bettany.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
