StarWars.com has updated it’s official Databank to provide us with the latest details regarding some of the characters and vehicles from “Solo: A Star Wars Story”.
Times were tough from Imperial rule. Han, a street thief, worked for a notorious gang on Corellia, stealing goods and cutting deals on behalf of an ill-tempered crime boss.
Beckett is a survivor, always quietly working out angles to come out ahead. He’s assembled a team of specialized scoundrels to carry out risky but profitable heists.
At 18 years of age, young Qi’ra is already enmmeshed in a life of crime, working for a gang on Corellia.
Smooth and sophisticated, Captain Lando Calrissian stood ready to retire from the life of a smuggler and instead become a full-time gambler (or, “sportsman” as he called it), shuffling from card game to card game across the galaxy.
A no-nonsense and occasionally prickly woman who is a crack shot with a blaster rifle, Val may be the most even-headed and capable member of Tobias Beckett’s ragtag crew of scoundrels.
A mighty Wookiee nearly two centuries old, Chewbacca fell upon hard times during this age of the expanding Empire.
The Millennium Falcon was Lando Calrissian’s pride and joy. The sleek Corellian ship had been extensively modified to meet Captain Calrissian’s discerning tastes.
Rio Durant has carried out dangerous operations alongside scoundrel Tobias Beckett for years. The good-natured Ardennian pilot is up for any challenge.
A “self-made droid” built from astromech and protocol parts, L3-37 is an enlightened navigator who cares deeply about droid rights.
Imperial patrol troopers
As the Empire reinforces its hold on worlds across the galaxy, local defense forces are being supplemented — and eventually completely replaced — with Imperial stormtroopers. To cover distances across sprawling settlements and cities, patrol stormtroopers police the streets and alleys aboard their swift interceptor speeder bikes.
Imperial heavy TIE fighter
Compensating for the relative fragility of the unshielded TIE starfighter is the armored TIE/rb, a reinforced heavy starfighter with much more powerful laser cannons.
Imperial Conveyex transport
For rapid transport of special cargo across surface distances on frontier worlds, the Empire uses heavily armored conveyex vehicles that travel along rails winding through treacherous terrain.
Corellian M-68 landspeeder
Han Solo is cagey about where he scored this overpowered M-68 landspeeder, saying little beyond that its previous owner no longer had a need for it.
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. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
