Han Solo: Star Wars. Stories is an incredibly immersive adventure that honestly deserves full episode status in this great franchise, not just one of the space-filling films that pass. Ron Howard was born to direct this film. Who's next in line for the saga? Zemeckis? Spielberg?
A fantastic duo of screenwriters, father and son Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdanov, effortlessly and as if by magic, brings the themes and spirit from episodes four and six to life and they really need to be given their due. Without these two, we would not have received any new Khan, we would not have seen his meeting with Chewie, but more on that later.
Moreover, “Han Solo. Star Wars. Stories ”is based on the original story, which formed the basis of one of the greatest bromances in the history of cinematography: between the stoic Wookiee Chewbacca and the cheeky handsome filibuster and the rebel pilot Han Solo.
Alden Ehrenreich submitted this role one hundred percent, he completely got used to the image that revives in the memory of the young romantically gallant Harrison Ford. But there is another meeting of those that are called cute - this is the blossoming love between man and machine: between the reckless pilot and the now iconic Millennium Falcon.
Alden Ehrenreich is the new Han Solo
Khan performed by Ehrenreich is an attractive scoundrel and scoundrel who, like everyone else, is oppressed on a tyrannized planet. He is in love with the beautiful Qi'rah (Emilia Clarke), and together they plan to bribe the authorities with the stolen super-valuable Coaxium fuel crystal.
No Han acts as planned while Qi'ra stays on the sidelines. Therefore, Khan vows to one day come back and find the girl. A few years later, he appears before us as a fine pilot who was kicked out of the Imperial fleet for disobedience and disobedience to command, so he was forced to form an alliance with the infamous Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), who works with his partner Val (Trendy Newton) on crime boss Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany). That's right: the two famous intergalactic thieves are named Beckett and Dryden.
History of the Millennium Falcon
Han also encounters a charismatic player with the appearance of a dandy, as well as a smuggler named Lando Calrissian, played by Donald Glover's genius. It is Lando who holds the Millennium Falcon in his hands.
But Lando would not have been who he is if he hadn't made his Falcon a bet in a card game in which he offered Han to play, which the latter was extremely happy about. Phoebe Waller-Bridge voices the droid L3-37, Lando's companion. But more importantly, Han is meeting with the prototype of the Resistance Force against the Empire.
Meeting with Qi'ra again
But wait a minute ... To his surprise, Han meets Qi'ra again face to face at one of Dryden's parties. Of all the parties in interplanetary space, she came here! There is still an attraction between Han and Qi'ra, but she is no longer the fresh girl he once knew. She turned into a gorgeous woman, but Dryden had already laid eyes on her and made her his girlfriend. Will Han be able to free her from Dryden's trap?
However, the main event, of course, is Khan's meeting with Chewie, who has already turned 190 years old, but in this series of films he is condemned as Dorian Gray to eternal youth. At this time, Khan was just thrown into a dirty pit by angry officers, so that he would die there, falling into the clutches of a "monster" imprisoned in a chain - Chewie. Of course, Han understands Chuuya's language, this extraordinary, incomparable animal voice, somewhat reminiscent of the sound of gargling in the morning.
But nevertheless, as soon as you hear these sounds, something in your heart says that it is he - the incomparable Chewbacca. Their strangest encounter becomes the most exciting moment in the entire chain of events, given the fact that Han originally decided to free Chewie and become his friend and ally.
New director and new Han

Stories" shuffles the long-familiar components of the myths in such a way that some viewers find them too familiar: the same scenes in the desert, a weird cabaret, etc. But why not, because this is a spin-off, and we will also plunge into the prehistory of what we have already seen, on the eve of what preceded the great friendship between Han and Chuuya, we will learn about how Han got his beloved Millennium Falcon and much more.
