"I've been running scams on the streets since I was ten. I was kicked out of the flight academy for having a mind of my own. I'm going to be a pilot. The best in the galaxy." So says a young street hustling, rule-breaking Han Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich in the opening moments of Disney and Lucasfilm's highly anticipated next Star Wars tale: Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Millennium Falcon captain Han Solo (previously played so memorably by Hollywood heavyweight Harrison Ford) is a central character in the Star Wars universe and with this upcoming film fans get to know the back story behind this galactic blaster-wielding smuggler.

Joining Ehrenreich on this interstellar adventure is an all-star cast including Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany and Donald Glover. Oscar-winning director Ron Howard directed the film.
