We're about to learn A LOT more about Han Solo. And not just because Alden Ehrenreich recently revealed he's signed to play the character in at least three more films. A new Star Wars featurette features the cast and crew of Solo: A Star Wars Story talking how Han became the man we know today.

Ok, so you probably already know Han Solo if you're reading this. But do you really know him? Do you know his history? How he met Chewie? How he got the Millenium Falcon? What was he like before A New Hope? In the latest Star Wars featurette, we get the promise of knowing more about how Han became the scruffy-looking nerf herder we met in A New Hope way back in 1977. 

Director Ron Howard sets the scene of Solo where the Empire is in complete control. That's where we meet Han Solo, who Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian) says we meet "right before he becomes the Han that we know." According to Howard, the story is "a rite of passage" showing the struggles and events which impacted and influenced the Han we have come to know and love so many decades later. Plus, Howard says we will get to see some of those pivotal moments we've probably all imagined--like Han meeting Chewbacca and Lando and first encounters with the Millenium Falcon. 

So get ready to know more about Han Solo than ever before. Check out the featurette here:
