Han Solo Crashes a Tie Fighter in Deleted ‘Solo’ Scene

Posted by September 12, 2018 Comment

More proof that maybe Han Solo isn’t the best pilot, or at least didn’t start out as the best, from another deleted scene from the upcoming Blu-ray, DVD release of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

This particular scene has a young Han, played by Alden Ehrenreich, going to trial for his “maverick heroics”, which obviously set the tone for the latter part of Solo’s life.

“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).

The full listing of what we’re actually gonna get on the release:
