I really like how Disney is giving us a Star Wars side story in between the major story-line movies. Rogue One gave us a look at how the rebels were able to get the blue prints for the Death Star. Now they are gonna shed some light on the early days of fan favorite character, Han Solo.
Judging by the trailer we will see Han’s time training as an Imperial pilot, before being booted from the program. We get to see how Han was mentored by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson). Tobias will teach him how to navigate through galactic criminal channels.
Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) has a bit of on screen time in the trailer. I am crossing my fingers that we get to see the famous poker game where Han Solo wins the Millennium Falcon from Lando.
Chewbacca is present in the trailer too. It is not certain if they will show how Han and Chewie met. If not, hopefully we will get a stand alone Chewbacca movie.
With Ron Howard in the director’s chair, I believe this movie will be great. I must believe this! Han Solo is an iconic Star Wars character and anything less than a great movie about him would be a disappointment.
Are you looking forward to Solo: A Star Wars Story? Do you want to see Han do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs? Let us know what you want to see in the movie in the comments.
To celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo is offering activities, including a food and drink menu inspired by the film, collectible pint glasses, an appearance by the El Paso Youth Orchestra, photos with “Vader Claus”, “Estar Guars” Loteria, an art show and more.
“We love to create memorable cinematic experiences for our guests and Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the perfect opportunity to pull out all the stops,” said Alamo Drafthouse Montecillo Programming Director, Robert Saucedo.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on Thursday, December 14 and picks up exactly where 2015’s The Force Awakens left off. This film puts the Star Wars saga’s beloved characters against all-new challenges and revelations.
Guests can purchase three different Mondo Star Wars: The Last Jedi pint glasses by superstar artist Oliver Barrett or a Birth.Movies.Death commemorative magazine with their ticket purchase at the box office (while supplies last).
The Alamo Drafthouse culinary team has crafted a tasty food and drink menu inspired by THE LAST JEDI with items to satisfy scruffy nerf-herders of all appetites.
Moviegoers can snack on a big ol’ bowl of fiery Lava Planet Popcorn, or find yourself some Tatooine-style comfort with a heaping plate of Twin Sun Hash. You can find all of these and more on specially designed die-cut menu shaped like your two new favorite droid heroes.
There is something for all Star Wars fans at Alamo Drafthouse Montecillo and the following activities are programmed for Thursday, December 14 through Saturday, December 16:
Join us for “Estar Guars” Loteria in Glass Half Full Taproom hosted by local artist Roman Martinex. 12/14 – 12/16, 6PM – 10PM
