Warning: this article contains a major spoiler for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Solo: A Star Wars Story reveals Han Solo actually lied about how many parsecs he was able to complete the Kessel Run in with the Millenium Falcon.
Once Han and the crew arrive on Savareen to refine the stolen coaxium, Han boasts about just completing the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs to a worker on the planet. His bragging is met with grumbling from Chewbacca. His new best friend is clearly challenging the distance Han is claiming he was able to complete the Kessel Run in, to which Han replies “Not if you round down.” And thus the myth of the fastest ship in the galaxy is born into legend.
Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo along with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca and Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian. The cast also includes Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Paul Bettany, and Ian Kenny. Here’s the official synopsis:
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 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.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters tomorrow.
5 Reasons To Be Excited (And 5 Reasons To Worry) About ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’
It’s been roughly five months since The Last Jedi came out, which means it’s time for another Star Wars movie! The second anthology film that explores the Star Wars universe’s past, Solo follows a young Han Solo as he becomes a smuggler. Before he had the Millennium Falcon or considered Luke Skywalker one of his best friends, Han was still talking and blasting his away across the galaxy.
A new Star Wars film is typically a cause for celebration, but there’s something different about Solo. The posters and print material all look fun and stylized, but the actual trailer looks gray and unsatisfying. There are a lot of things propping this movie up, mainly that it is about Han Solo, arguably the most popular character in the entire franchise, but there are also a lot of things dragging it down. Hopefully Solo will kick butt, but without Harrison Ford at the center of the action, it’s hard to say!
