SOLO: A Star Wars Story, the prequel to the various Star Wars episodes, marks the debut of the insolent Han Solo, the legendary and charismatic hero discovered in 1977 in the form of the young Harrison Ford. At the helm of the Falcon Millennium, the actor Alden Ehrenreich travels through the galaxy under the orders of director Ron Howard. His adventures lead him into the shadows of the criminal underworld… 

After Rogue One (Gareth Edwards, 2016), the first in the Star Wars series, under the banner of "A Star Wars Story", the challenge of SOLO: A Star Wars Story has been taken up by actor-director Ron Howard, director of the hit Apollo 13 (1995), A Beautiful Mind (2002) and Da Vinci Code (2006).

 

It was in this autonomous version of Star Wars based on the character of Han Solo, that he met the faithful Chewbacca. And it is also in this space western that the spectator will find the keys to the encounter between the young smuggler and this huge hairy 190-year-old biped  with intonations similar to the Wookiees, who has come from the planet Kashyyyk. The protected reserve of Jandía, a desert of dunes to the south of the arid island of Fuerteventura in the Canaries provides the new backdrop for the planet Corellia, the mysterious land that gave birth to Han Solo.

 

Seen in Tetro and Twix by Francis Ford Coppola in 2009 et 2011, and again in Stoker by Park Chan-wook in 2013, the actor Alden Ehrenreich plays Han Solo. Ron Howard and George Lucas, founder of the trilogy, have known each other since 1873, when Lucas gave Howard the role of Steve Bolander in American Graffiti.
