Lucasfilm’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story” which tells the origins of the legendary Han Solo is now playing in Philippine cinemas. While Han is not only the title character but also the anchor of the film, it’s really the relationships that he forms over the course of his life that make him a well-rounded and interesting figure.

Below, let’s meet the colorful characters in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and get a glimpse of how they shaped Han’s destiny.

Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich). For young Han Solo, times are tough under Imperial rule. He makes his way as a reckless street thief, working for a notorious gang on Corellia, which is headed up by an ill-tempered crime boss. After an arduous stint as an Imperial mudtrooper, Han calls it quits and finds that he is very comfortable reinventing himself and traveling in the company of scoundrels around the galaxy.

Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson). There is no question that Beckett is a survivor. Seasoned, taciturn, and all-business, Beckett quietly works out all the angles to come out ahead. He’s put together a team of specialized thieves to carry out risky but profitable heists, which he carefully plans and executes.

Qi’Ra (Emilia Clarke). Qi’ra is deeply enmeshed in a life of crime as a member of a street gang on Corellia. Street-smart, calculating and ambitious, she puts her early life as a powerless street urchin behind her and uses all her wits to move up in status within a prominent criminal organization.


Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). Smooth, sophisticated Captain Lando Calrissian stands ready to retire from his life of a smuggler and become a full-time gambler. His calling is now to shuffle from one high-stakes card game to another across the galaxy as opportunities arise.

Val (Thandie Newton). Val is a trusted member of Beckett’s crew. Cool, bad-ass, and self-assured, Val is a no-nonsense woman who can be prickly at times, to say the least. She is a crack shot with a blaster rifle but may just be the most level-headed and capable member of Beckett’s ragtag crew of scoundrels.

L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge). L3-37 is Lando’s co-pilot and a self-made droid assembled from astromech and protocol parts. Despite her make-up, L3-37 is an enlightened navigator who cares deeply about droid rights.

Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany). Dryden Vos heads up an emerging criminal syndicate. Under Vos’ leadership, the organization quickly gains a reputation for ruthlessness. But as ruthless as Vos is, he is not a crude cutthroat, preferring instead to surround himself with luxury.

Chewbacca (Joonas Suotomo). The mighty Wookiee is nearly two centuries old, but he has fallen on hard times during the age of the expanding Empire. When fate has Han and Chewbacca cross paths, Chewbacca embarks on a long, loyal and trusting friendship that he could have never expected.
