“190 years old? You look great!” says Solo to Chewy, and that’s the first time I’ve heard a line from my own life on screen.
Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Emilia Clarke as Qi’Ra, Thandie Newton as Val, and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. The film is directed by Ron Howard.
Solo: A Star Wars Story premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on 15th May, where I will be, though whether I’ll get in to see it is another matter. UK release is May 24th, and a day late in the USA. Check out the first Solo trailer here.
