Experience the fun-filled move, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” available on Digital 9/14 and on Blu-Ray on SEPT. 25th! #HanSolo



You know to never tell him the odds. Even if you're not the most Star Wars savvy person in the world, most of you probably know that Harrison Ford was Han Solo in the Star Wars episodes 4, 5, 6, & 7. This is a character that is well represented, loved, and revered in the world of science fiction movies. The cocky, brash, quick-witted space smuggler is a well-known character, and in Solo: A Star Wars Story we get to see how the older version of Han we all grew to love was shaped. I was very fortunate to be able to walk the red carpet for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and I just loved this movie. My family and I were excited to check out this new Blu-ray!
 Alden Ehrenreich is taking up the mantle as the scruffy looking (much younger) nerf herder. We follow the scoundrel on a series of daring missions across the galaxy, along the way he runs into a large hairy walking carpet that goes by the name Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), he comes face to face with a notorious gambler and original owner of the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).  Phoebe Waller-Bridge who plays the droid “L3-37”, is a real scene stealer, I have to admit I laughed out loud a few times in her scenes.  

Lucasfilm’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” directed by Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Ron Howard—the creator of unforgettable films, such as “A Beautiful Mind,” “Apollo 13,” “Parenthood” and “Splash”—took moviegoers on this summer’s wildest ride with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy, Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich). The action-packed journey explores Han’s first encounters with future friend and copilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), as well as his adventure-filled past alongside fellow street thief Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) and career criminal Beckett (Woody Harrelson). Watch instantly on Sept. 14thas the Millennium Falcon sets course digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and on Movies Anywhere, and bring the adventure home on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on Sept. 25.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” bonus content takes fans behind the scenes to experience compelling discussions with the star-studded cast and screenwriters Jonathan Kasdan & Lawrence Kasdan (writer of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi); a revealing feature on Chewie and his enduring friendship with Han; a close-up look at the original version of the Millennium Falcon and Han’s first time piloting the infamous ship; the creation of the film’s otherworldly settings and pulse-pounding action sequences; and eight never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes.

Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world.

Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon’s Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it.
