There's a new Star Wars out, have you seen it yet? It's more likely than ever that the answer is "no." Solo: A Star Wars Story, the origin tale of everyone's favourite stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder, has been struggling hard at the box office since its release.

When Marvel first started its classic Star Wars comic in 1977, it was quickly faced with a challenging conundrum: how to tell tales in the Star Wars universe beyond the events of the movie. It's no surprise that the publisher turned to Han Solo for material, but what is surprising is just how bonkers its first original storyline would get.
We finally got another look at Solo: A Star Wars Story yesterday, and it gave us a much better idea of what we can expect from the movie after that first, cryptic trailer in February.

But it's far from the first time Star Wars material has attempted to explore the past of Corellia's most famous son. Here's Solo: A Star Wars Story, according to the old Expanded Universe.
Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo movie. It was the casting that made everybody stand up and applaud when it was announced last year. Now that we've seen a trailer for Solo and are hearing Glover talk about playing Cloud City's chief dude, our hunger for a Lando-centric project has only intensified.
Earlier this week, we got the first, long-awaited look at Solo: A Star Wars Story. But even then, that look was full of perplexing mysteries... like, who these characters actually are, aside from the scruffy lookin' nerfherder and fuzzy co-pilot that we already know.
