Why the Millennium Falcon Looks Different in Solo

For Solo, Favreau joins Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Joonas Suotomo as Chewbacca, Donald Glover as young Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett, Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra, Thandie Newton as Val, Phoebe Waller-Bridge as L3-37, Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos, and Harley Durst as Moloch.

Jon Favreau is well-known for his acting in a variety of roles, particularly his Marvel character Happy Hogan, but he is also an award-winning and heavily-nominated director, writer, and producer. But today we got something that truly gets us hyped to visit the galaxy far, far away once more-new toys.

Until now, this hunk of junk is worn down and aging, but in Solo: A Star Wars Story, she's got the look - so fresh and so clean, clean. "One of the things Larry and I had talked about was the Falcon should always reflect the personality of its captain", he said.

West also posted Brad Pitt and his three former lovers - Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston , and Angelina Jolie. Meanwhile, Kanye West has also made a long-awaited return to social media following a lengthy absence.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is now in post-production, but earlier this month (Feb18), Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Favreau shared a photo of himself on Twitter with Howard and Star Wars screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. He's the star and creator of FX's Atlanta, he's Miles Morales' uncle, he helped director Ryan Coogler with script edits for Black Panther and he is the coolest black man in Star Wars, Lando Calrissian.

Since it turns out that Solo: A Star Wars Story is definitely a real movie and one that's coming out in May, we've now got our first look at one of the highly anticipated LEGO sets from the Han Solo movie. It's cleaner, sleeker and lacks the forked nose. We'll see what becomes of that as the May 25 film unfolds.

As EW not-so subtly points out, "the nose of this toy appears to have weapons that swing out from the front and the nose clearly pulls out into a separate, smaller ship", which will remind fans of the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels. It's a lot cleaner this time around with the gap at the front of the ship we've come to associate with the Falcon filled in.
