You may have noted an impending Star Wars movie titled, Solo: A Star Wars Story, featuring a young Han Solo. Out on the 24th of May in the UK, so expect plenty of ‘May the Twenty-Fourth Be With You’ jokes. Though it won’t work quite as well in the US, as it’s out there on the 25th. Sorry. Maybe for those lining up on the 24th it will still work and, to be fair, those are the type of folk who will find it funniest, even after the twenty-fourth time it’s said.
Where was I? Oh yes. Young Han Solo. Because Star Wars fans get get an early take on just that thing on Free Comic Book Day on May 5th, the day after Star Wars Day. With a Star Wars Adventures comic from IDW that featured a young Han Solo and Chewbacca, set long before the events in the original Star Wars movie.
And it’s the usual Han. Getting captured by bounty hunters and mouthing off to them…
Keeping a Wookiee on retainer…
…oh, and a certain starship ready to leave at any given moment. And while it may be free, it also leads into the Star Wars Adventures series later that month which also stars a certain young Han Solo. With Star Wars Adventures #10 out the following Wednesday, May the tenth be with you.
It’s almost as if they’d thought it through…
