All of those deleted scenes make me very excited, especially seeing Han as an Imperial Cadet and one of the best war scenes in all of Star Wars, The Battle of Mimban. There is a lot of cool content to chew on and I can’t wait to eat it all up.  

Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke as Q’ira, Woody Harrelson as Beckett, and Joonas Suotomo as Chewbacca and here is the official synopsis.

“Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.”

In short “Big shot gangster, putting together a crew.”, two more months guys!
