Take your seat at the Sabacc tables if you can spare the credits!
With just one week between us and the release of the highly anticipated Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm has released a series of beautifully artistic character posters for us all to enjoy. These incredible posters arrange us around the Sabacc table sat alongside the greatest characters in Star Wars history. Whether your taste be Han Solo, the mighty Wookiee Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, or saga newcomer Qi’Ra, these posters will have us all wishing the wait will zoom past in less than twelve parsecs…
The biggest smoothest criminal in the galaxy is up first. Donald Glover steps into Billy Dee Williams’ shoes to play Lando Calrissian. The best dressed rogue in the Star Wars universe is destined to lose his beloved Millennium Falcon to the daring young Han Solo.
Next up is Qi’Ra (Emilia Clarke), Han Solo’s longtime friend and fellow rule-breaker, is redefining what it means to be a modern screen siren. After growing up with Han on Corellia, her career followed a different path until the star-crossed lovers are reunited.
Our penultimate poster belongs to mighty Wookiee, Chewbacca. Reprising his role from sequels The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, Joonas Suotamo strikes back as the greatest walking carpet in cinema history. He is the best friend and co-pilot to the young daring Han Solo.
And, finally, the best pilot in the galaxy takes his rightful place as leader of our rogue’s gallery. Han Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich reinvents himself as the scruffiest-looking nerfherder in the Star Wars universe and takes on Lando Calrissian in a game of Sabacc with the reward being ownership of the Millennium Falcon.
If you have the credits to play a hand, then take a seat. But these players are here to win.
Solo: A Star Wars Story arrives on our screens on May 24.
