You might want to get this date in your diary now, as Thursday 27th December at 3.35pm at the Prince Charles Cinema just off Leicester Square in London will see a one-off screening of the magnificent Solo: A Star Wars Story.
27th December is an important date in the UK Star Wars diary. 27th December 1977 saw the original Star Wars premiere at the Dominion Theatre on Tottenham Court Road, and 41 years later you can enjoy the earlier adventures of Han and Chewie in their criminally underappreciated stand alone film and celebrate the UK birthday of the series.
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY
Directed by Ron Howard
Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke
2018 | 135mins | USA | rated (12A)
Young Han Solo finds adventure when he joins forces with a gang of galactic smugglers and a 190-year-old Wookiee named Chewbacca. Indebted to the gangster Dryden Vos, the crew devises a daring plan to travel to the mining planet Kessel to steal a batch of valuable coaxium.
In need of a fast ship, Solo meets Lando Calrissian, the suave owner of the perfect vessel for the dangerous mission — the Millennium Falcon.
