Solo: A Star Wars Story: Why the Millennium Falcon's look is different


We'll Finally See The Millennium Falcon's 'Special Modifications' In 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

For Han, some aspects of his Solo outfit are rather familiar, while others we're seeing for the first time.

It's entirely possible that the legendary Kessel run, which we'll see in full-effect in the movie, may have something to do with the Falcon's rough appearance - which seems to have many obstacles and dangers through its path.

Alden Ehrenreich will play a young Solo in Howard's movie, alongside Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, as well as co-stars Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Paul Bettany, and Warwick Davis.

The set will hit stores this April and will retail for $169.99.

As for the content of the movie itself, we've since learned that screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan were influenced by stories like Treasure Island and Heat while crafting the origin tale of Han Solo-a film set in the criminal underworld, about a young man who becomes corrupted just enough to turn into the lovable rogue we know from Harrison Ford's iteration of the performance.

The Imperial Range Trooper features a fur coat, suggesting that Han and company might run into trouble on the snow-covered planet we saw in the trailer.
