Now, the job is officially complete with the director tweeting: "That’s a wrap on post production! #Solo @HanSoloStory #SkywalkerRanch Wow. What a movie-making adventure it’s been! Thanks to a terrific cast & extraordinary folks behind the camera as well. You’ve worked so hard to fully realize this cool story. Hope fans have a blast! #May25"

While marketing took some time to get off the ground in the wake of Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi, things ramped up with a couple trailers, as well as lots of clips showcasing Han's mentorship by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), his meeting with Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), as well as the start of his friendship with Chewbacca.

Fans also recently began getting more insight into the Millennium Falcon, Han's criminal lifestyle and robberies, as well as the enemies he'll be facing other than the Galactic Empire. With the project being tracked to meet Rogue One's opening haul, safe to say, we all have a good feeling about the space smuggler's solo flick.

Directed by Ron Howard from a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. They’re joined by Thandie Newton as Val, Phoebe Waller-Bridge L3-37, Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos and Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett. The film opens May 25.
