While some fans were excited or just cautiously optimistic about the casting, there was a part of the Star Wars family that was simply unwilling to accept any Han Solo that wasn't played by Harrison Ford.

LucasfilmDonald Glover as Lando Calrissian is fantastic. It seems pretty clear in Star Wars: A New Hope that Han Solo has never met C-3PO or R2-D2 before, so having them have a run-in during Solo: A Star Wars Story would seem odd.

Star Wars fans have had months to get used to the idea of a Han Solo movie without Harrison Ford. I will say this, though: It at least looks like Nick Acosta, who put this video together and posted it on Vimeo, probably did the best anyone could've with the available resources. It definitely feels like Solo: A Star Wars Story has felt the impact of the Marvel Studios effect.

"Well, there are so many possibilities and, you know, it's kind of one of those things where we're sitting around, waiting for those shots".

When we meet young Han (Alden Ehrenreich), he's one of many thieving orphans being exploited by the reptilian, Fagin-like Lady Proxima (voiced by Linda Hunt). While "Solo" hasn't completely overcome the long odds, those harboring a love of the franchise should come away, ultimately, with a good feeling about this. But last week, as the world got its first look at his performance, Ehrenreich defied expectations yet again.

Lando Calrissian, the renowned smuggler and gambler, is played by Donald Glover, a man of many talents.

The film is the second stand-alone film set in the "Star Wars" universe. "We wouldn't call it Willow 2, I think it would focus a lot on Elora Danan, although Willow would have to be significantly involved". They're joined by Thandie Newton as Val, Phoebe Waller-Bridge L3-37, Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos, and Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett.

While Han Solo is a similar flavor to Willow's Madmartigan, Howard captures all of the charm and humor of the original Star Wars trilogy. The golden humanoid robot has been in all Star Wars movies since the first one was released in 1977.

Besides that, we also get some interesting insight from director of photography Bradford Young.
