Solo: A Star Wars Story's drawing closer to its premiere and Lucasfilm's been slowly oiling the gears on the film's marketing campaign, wowing fans with new trailers, TV spots, and posters for the highly anticipated Star Wars spinoff.

Updating the databank entries on the official Star Warswebsite, Lucasfilm has just given Star Wars fans new details about the different characters that they're going to see in Solo: A Star Wars Story, including Star Wars newcomers like Emilia Clarke's Qi'Ra, Woody Harrelson's Tobias Beckett, Thandie Newton's Val, and Jon Favreau's cute little Rio Durant.

The updated databank entries also feature new descriptions for Star Wars staples like Han (Alden Ehrenreich), Lando (Donald Glover) and Chewie (Joonas Suotamo).


Han Solo- Times were tough under Imperial rule. Han, a street thief, worked for a notorious gang on Corellia, stealing goods and cutting deals on behalf of an ill-tempered crime boss.

Chewbacca- A mighty Wookiee nearly two centuries old, Chewbacca fell upon hard times during this age of the expanding Empire.

Lando Calrissian- Smooth and sophisticated, Captain Lando Calrissian stood ready to retire from the life of a smuggler and instead become a full-time gambler (or, "sportsman" as he called it), shuffling from card game to card game across the galaxy.

Qi'Ra- At 18 years of age, young Qi'ra is already enmeshed in a life of crime, working for a gang on Corellia.

Tobias Beckett- Beckett is a survivor, always quietly working out angles to come out ahead. He's assembled a team of specialized scoundrels to carry out risky but profitable heists.

Val- A no-nonsense and occasionally prickly woman who is a crack shot with a blaster rifle, Val may be the most even-headed and capable member of Tobias Beckett's ragtag crew of scoundrels.

L3-37- A "self-made droid" built from astromech and protocol parts, L3-37 is an enlightened navigator who cares deeply about droid rights.


Rio Durant- Rio Durant has carried out dangerous operations alongside scoundrel Tobias Beckett for years. The good-natured Ardennian pilot is up for any challenge.

The studio's new character descriptions are certainly interesting. What does Lucasfilm exactly mean by L3-37 being a "self-made droid" and are we going to see the exact point where Lando decides to retire from a life of smuggling? Who exactly is the ill-tempered crime boss that Han's working for?

We can't wait to find out.

Solo: A Star Wars Story premieres May 25.
