A slew of new details have come out today about SOLO: THE STAR WARS STORY since photos of its LEGO sets leaked online.
The lego sets included The Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, Han’s Landspeeder, some new stormtroopers, and of course Lando and his cape.
Since the images were small the resolution was very low, and you can barely read the info included let alone the names of the mini figures.
Jeremy Conrad on Reddit came through with confirmation of the character names and the corresponding cast members.
Woody Harrelson previously revealed that his character’s name was Beckett, and thanks to these LEGO sets we now know that his full name is Tobias Beckett. Woody has since said he’s a mentor to Han Solo and shapes him into the smuggler we came to love in Star Wars: A New Hope.
One of the LEGO sets revealed this morning was an Imperial TIE Fighter. The mini-figures that come along with it include both Tobias Beckett and Han Solo in some kind of disguise.
Along with that TIE Fighter set comes an Imperial Pilot for the TIE Fighter and a soldier called Mimban Stormtrooper. That would seem to indicate that one of the settings we’ll see in Solo: A Star Wars Story is Mimban, a planet that was previously mentioned on The Clone Wars that we’ve never been to in any of the live-action Star Wars movies.
Emilia Clarke‘s character is named Qi’Ra. She comes with the LEGO set of Han Solo’s land speeder along with the smuggler himself. In addition, they’re accompanied by a Corellian hound, which likely means we’ll be spending some time on Solo’s home planet of Corellia.
Han Solo and Qi’Ra won’t be alone on Corellia though because one of the other sets is a different land speeder that comes with mini-figures for the characters Moloch and Rebolt.
Finally, new character names come from the LEGO Mini-figures included the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon set. This includes revealing Thandie Newton‘s character as Quay Tolsite , as well as DD-BD, a droid played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. That set also includes Qi’Ra and a red Kessel Operations Droid along with our old buddies Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich), Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).
I’m curious as to why Emilia Clarke’s character is included in two of the sets. Is Qi’Ra Han’s love interest? I’m assuming she’ll have a significant role in the film.
I don’t know about you but I’m loving that the film will take place in various locations like Corellia and Mimban.
Needless to say, anticipation was low for me. But I’m pretty excited now that we’ve gotten some details, even though they are from Lego sets.
Let us know if these sets have changed your mind and you’re now getting excited for SOLO below.
