New Lego Kessel Run Millennium Falcon Unveiled

After finding its way online unofficially, a new hi-res version of the poster for Solo: A Star Wars Story has been released. Howard then retweeted the picture and answered why Favreau was hanging out. Thankfully, Howard cleared the air.

Howard also revealed on Twitter earlier today Favreau will be voicing a vital and "cool" alien character in Solo.

"Wondering why we r all together?"

"Flattered & fortunate I could pull him away from his #LionKing directing duties", Howard added, referring to the new live-action Disney remake Favreau is taking charge of.




Ron Howard was asked online if he would be voicing a character or doing any voiceover work like he does on Arrested Development. "Zero chance. But thanks for asking".

Our first look at Hasbro's Black Series action figures arrives courtesy of io9, which features close-ups of Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Qi'ra, and an Imperial Range Trooper that Hasbro plans to officially unveil later in the week at the New York Toy Fair. Solo: A Star Wars Story will pull back the curtain on this period of the smuggler's life, and ever since director Ron Howard posted a "spicy" picture a year ago during filming, it's been strongly suggested that the upcoming Star Wars movie will show Han flying the Kessel Run, a feat he completed in less than 12 parsecs, as he bragged to Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope. However, a voiceover part would not have really worked out in a Star Wars movie, so it's good that we don't have to worry about that. However, the director did not provide any further details about the role. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and unsafe 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.

The film hits theaters on May 25.
