Solo: A Star Wars Story Junior Novel by Joe Schreiber

Solo: A Star Wars Story Junior Novel
Star Wars Junior Novelizations
Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
Written Joe Schreiber
Audiobook narrated by Sean Henin Bradford Hastings
Publisher: Del Rey Books | Random House Audio
Audiobook Release date: September 4, 2018

I’d like to preface this by saying that the next week or so is going to be interesting. I just finished the audiobook of Solo: A Star Wars Story Junior Novel (which I will review here in short order) and then I’m embarking on Solo: A Star Wars Story Expanded Edition. Both are novelizations of the same movie, but with different authors and different voice talents on each. I want to liken it to watching the theatrical and director’s cuts of a film, but I don’t think it’s going to be like that at all, to be honest, because the interpretations by the authors should be slightly different and the lead voice will have a different sound entirely. Bear with me, okay?

I began with the Junior Novel audiobook because I knew I could tear through it pretty quickly and because I’m already familiar with author Joe Schreiber‘s work in the Star Wars Universe having read both Death Troopers and Maul: Lockdown. (I’m pretty sure Death Troopers is the final book I purchased before Borders Books & Music shuttered forever).

Donald Glover cast in Star Wars Han Solo movie

This deal is getting better all the time.

Back in August, we reported that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, directors of the upcoming Star Wars Story spin-off that follows a young Han Solo (to be played by Alden Ehrenreich), were looking at Donald Glover, star of Community, Atlanta, and The Martian and the Grammy-winning rap artist known as Childish Gambino, for the role of Han’s fellow charming scoundrel Lando Calrissian.

Today, Lucasfilm has officially announced that Glover will indeed play Calrissian in the as-yet-untitled feature.

Lando Calrissian and Han Solo

Finding the right person to play Han Solo wasn’t easy, but directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller found their smuggler in Hail, Caesar! star Alden Ehrenreich. The film won’t be released until 2018, but we are slowly learning more about it. In recent weeks, rumors like Solo appearing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have been shot down, but there has also been confirmation that Chewbacca would appear.

Now there is word that another legendary Star Wars character will make an appearance in Solo’s solo film. According to a new report Lando Calrissian will be part of the film, and it’s who might be playing him that has many of us interested. The Martian and Community star Donald Glover is being eyed to play him. More on the story below.

The end of Star Wars Celebration is upon us, but if we have learned anything from this event, they generally save the best for last. At the Future Filmmaker panel, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were on hand to talk about the upcoming Han Solo film, which was written by the father and son team of Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. Of course, since production has yet to begin, Lord and Miller could not spoil too much, but they were more than happy to reveal some interesting tidbits about the standalone film that should keep us happy.

Check out what they had to say here below.
