News: Alden Ehrenreich & Jon Kasdan Talk About The Millennium Falcon Changes In Solo: A Star Wars Story

 There has been a great of discussion regarding the upcoming Star Wars film Solo: A Star Wars Story. One major thing that's been talked about is the major changes to the Millennium Falcon, which has received a drastic makeover both on the outside and the inside. Screenwriter Jon Kasdan and Alden Ehrenreich spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the changes. Kasdan said that:

“Where Han gave it a certain shabby coolness and a dinged up quality that reflected where he was at that point in his life, this Falcon reflects its owner very clearly in its shape and aesthetic and his needs, even if those needs be a little more space to entertain…One of the things Larry and I had talked about was the Falcon should always reflect the personality of its captain.” 

Ehrenreich went spoke about the practical reason for its eventual look in the original trilogy, saying that:

 “It’s safer in the galaxy to fly something that looks like a piece of junk. People underestimate you — especially if you’re up to no good. Kinda like how you’re more likely to get pulled over if you’re driving a Lamborghini.”

The film features Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and actress Emilia Clarke in an unnamed role. Ron Howard took over the project in June after the original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired. It also stars Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Thandie Newton. It is currently scheduled to be released on May 25, 2018.
