If it's more that you crave - and what nerfherder among us doesn't? - then you can check this starwars.com recap of all of director Ron Howard's updates. Given what we learned way back in 1980's Empire Strikes Back, that Han won the Millennium Falcon from Lando in a game of Sabacc, it could do nothing but.

Now, in anticipation of the film's upcoming release, Lucasfilm has given us something beyond the film's title, in the form of an official synopsis which provides all the expected story beats, plus a few interesting tidbits which could shed light on exactly what kind of movie this is going to be.

"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", the summary read.

Solo has been mired in controversy ever since original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller left the project after reported clashes with writers Lawrence and Jon Kasdan as well as Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.

Thailand at Canada meeting to tighten N.Korea net
Kim Jong Un simply does not understand the concept of negotiating, it is not within his vocabulary. As Charles Jenkins pointed out, there is no good way to deal with the North Koreans.

While this will be the first time the original meeting between Han Solo and Chewbacca will be revealed onscreen, it's not the first time a version of the story has been told - in other words, what was considered canon before Disney made a decision to disregard it.

Alden Ehrenreich already had a heavy lift in persuading us that his portrayal was a worthy younger version of the mighty Harrison Ford; if he fails to shine on screen, even the most polished edit won't do much good.

With just over four months until its theatrical release, the details surrounding the plot of Solo: A Star Wars Story are still surprisingly scarce.

But that's about to change, as the first official synopsis for Solo has now dropped.
