Rogue One demonstrated that audiences will turn out to theaters to watch a Star Wars movie that’s not about the Skywalker family, and the next standalone film will show off the early days of a young Han Solo.

Solo will star Alden Ehrenreich in the titular role, while Donald Glover will play his scoundrel friend, Lando Calrissian. Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Joonas Suotamo have also joined the cast as supporting characters. The film was originally helmed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, but they were fired midway through production and replaced with Ron Howard.

What's the latest news about the film? How does it differ from the saga films and Rogue One? What will happen in this film that will shape the Han Solo we know and love? Follow along for all the latest news, trailers, and commentary.

Solo will hit theaters on May 25th, 2018.
