George Lucas Contributed To a Little Moment in SOLO; There's Also a New TV Spot That Focuses on Lando
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters this week and I can't wait for you to get to see it. While we wait, I have a couple new things to share with you. First is some information regarding a little moment in the film that George Lucas contributed to. We also have a new TV spot for the film for you to watch the put Lando Calrissian at the center of attention, which is where he should be.
In an interview with Variety, director Ron Howard talks about a little scene in the film that Star Wars creator George Lucas offered some advice on when he was visiting the set. There’s a scene in the film that's set on the Millennium Falcon between Han (Alden Ehrenreich) and Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke). They are in Lando's closest, which is full of capes, and in the middle of the conversation, Han was supposed to hang a cape back up on the rack. But, Lucas had another idea:
"He said, 'You know, Han wouldn’t bother to hang it up."
So instead of hanging it up Han just kind of tosses it in the corner. It may not seems like a big deal, but if there's one person that knows Han Solo better than anyone, it's Lucas. Howard goes on to say:
"Not only was it a nice accent on the scene, but it was also a reminder that George created this character and really understood him. He was so reluctant [to offer his opinion], and yet the choice was so right that it was fun to use it."
Lucas was actually developing a Han Solo film before Disney bought Lucasfilm. I haven't seen any information on whether or not he liked the movie, but it is kinda nice that he got to give a little input even if it wasn't a big major thing. As you all know, I loved how the film turned out.
Now, check out the new spot for the film below:
