The clocking is slowly ticking down to the next Star Wars film Solo: A Star Wars Story arrives in our local cinemas. Lucasfilm has sent us a couple of new short clips one which has Hans Solo meeting Lando Calrissian.
Both clips have a gaming connection to both. First up is a clip called ‘Holochess’, when we meet Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) playing Holochess with Chewbacca. The big wookie gets a little frustrated and Tobias offers some advice. In the second clip,’Hans Meets Lando‘ the title sums it what this clip is all about. As old friends meet for the first time, both with an already established reputation. Hans (or Hen as Lando calls him) joins him for a game of Sabaac, can he outwit him?
We’re hoping Solo will wipe away our nightmares of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and restore our faith in the franchise. This film itself has not escaped from it’s personal and production problems. Some critics already have already no faith in the film. We, however, are a little more optimistic!
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, 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 befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
