Solo, which includes a cast of Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover, tells Han Solo's origin story and how he becomes the anti-hero that fans grew to know and love in the prequel movies.

Favreau told Nerdist the series takes place seven years after the Battle of Endor, positioning it between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens on the Star Wars timeline. At the after-party, one influence was immediately apparent: I've never seen so many Hollywood partygoers wearing capes.

That Ford - a man who is not known for his effusive enthusiasm for anything - dropped in to give his seal of approval came as a tremendous relief for the young actor. "Alden Ehrenreich was carrying the burden of this movie and what a responsibility to take on an iconic character like that", the director said. Are you ready for a new branch in the tree of Star Wars? Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Thandie Newton as Val and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Lando's droid companion, L3-37, also got appreciations from the critics. (Alan Tudyk's droid K-2SO was a similar surprise hit of Rogue One, so perhaps it's time we all stop underestimating Lucasfilm's robotic characters-which have progressed far beyond even the popular beeps and blustering protests of R2-D2 and C-3PO). Then went on to working on the part, putting all that aside and playing this guy where he is now.

Notably, the original directors of the film Phil Lord and Chris Miller were asked to step down from the director's chair just three weeks before principal photography was scheduled to wrap.

Given that he has already directed one Star Wars films and is attached to create more, Johnson admitted that many of his fans might think his opinions would be suspiciously positive. "And I'm sure they're going to keep making these things long after I'm gone".

"He was the first toy I ever had", Glover said.
