John Favreau Reveals Timeline for Star Wars TV Show

Solo Premiere: How the Mysterious Star Wars Spinoff Played to Its First Audience

An 8th Star Wars: Forces of Destiny short will arrive on the day of the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Enfys Nest has been said to be the villain of the flick.

It's been revealed that Ron Howard reshot 70% of Solo: A Star Wars Story after coming onboard to replace the previous directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who wanted it to be more like Guardians of the Galaxy.

The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, both actors playing younger versions of the characters made famous by the original Star Wars trilogy.

Harrison Ford surprised Alden Ehrenreich during his ET junket interview for Solo: A Star Wars Story, after missing the film's Los Angeles premiere earlier in the week. I know for Ron [Howard] and [producer] Kathleen [Kennedy] it's just such a huge deal to have him really, genuinely enjoy the film. He also spread the love to Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who plays Lando's droid, L3, saying she "has a few of the funniest moments I've ever seen in a Star Wars movie!"

14 days before Solo hits theaters, the first critic reactions hit the internet, and one day after the Deadpool 2 thoughts hit the internet. "I was really on pins and needles, and I was so gratified to hear laughs and hear cheers in all the places I hoped and I dreamed that they would be. And I'm sure they're going to keep making these things long after I'm gone".

Well there you have it, the Star Wars TV Series will be set around 7 years after the end of Return of the Jedi.

"If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn't have believed you".

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, who portrays Solo's childhood friend Qi'ra, said the change of directors produced less drama than people may think.

In the meantime, Solo opens May 24 in Australia and May 25 in the USA and UK.
