  'SOLO: STAR WARS STORY'
GETS A BRAND NEW TRAILER
Solo will first air at Cannes Film Festival
Disney has released a new trailer for their prequel movie SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY which will bring Han's origin story into cinemas May 25th! A rather doomed project which had to change its director in the middle of production and got mixed reaction for the first trailer and the choice of Alden Ehrenreich for the lead, is predicted to earn the lowest income of all Star Wars movies so far. Also starring Emilia Clarke as Qi'Ra, Woody Harrelson as Solo's mentor and Donald Glover as young Lando Calrissian, the movie will describe how Han Solo became the famed criminal of the galactic empire.
Chewbacca's wife is also set to appear in this one!
Opening first exclusively at Cannes Film Festival next month the science fiction adventure movie also stars Westworld's Thandie Newton

  1. I've always meant to read "The Woman in White" but never got around to it. Now I won't have to -- I just have to watch the BBC mini-series! I'm sure it will show up over here on PBS's "Masterpiece Theatre" in due course.

    1. Hope we get a trailer soon for Woman in White! It is a very fresh cast for BBC, some of them haven't been seen on BBC before.

  5. 'a woman in white', 'a woman in black'; there's always a woman in some specific color. These titles, usually have, however, a good story behind them.

  6. Any guy with a high voice can't be Han Solo.

    1. He will be unbearable, I knew it right from the start but nobody would listen to me when I told them Jack Reynor was the man for the job
