Starwars.com has released new descriptions on multiple Solo: A Star Wars Story characters!
A no-nonsense and occasionally prickly woman who is a crack shot with a blaster rifle, Val may be the most even-headed and capable member of Tobias Beckett’s ragtag crew of scoundrels.
Beckett is a survivor, always quietly working out angles to come out ahead. He’s assembled a team of specialized scoundrels to carry out risky but profitable heists.
At 18 years of age, young Qi’ra is already enmmeshed in a life of crime, working for a gang on Corellia.
Rio Durant has carried out dangerous operations alongside scoundrel Tobias Beckett for years. The good-natured Ardennian pilot is up for any challenge.
A “self-made droid” built from astromech and protocol parts, L3-37 is an enlightened navigator who cares deeply about droid rights.
IMPERIAL PATROL TROOPERS
As the Empire reinforces its hold on worlds across the galaxy, local defense forces are being supplemented — and eventually completely replaced — with Imperial stormtroopers. To cover distances across sprawling settlements and cities, patrol stormtroopers police the streets and alleys abourd their swift interceptor speeder bikes.
IMPERIAL HEAVY TIE FIGHTER
Compensating for the relative fragility of the unshielded TIE starfighter is the armored TIE/rb, a reinforced heavy starfighter with much more powerful laser cannons.
IMPERIAL CONVEYEX TRANSPORT
For rapid transport of special cargo across surface distances on frontier worlds, the Empire uses heavily armored conveyex vehicles that travel along rails winding through treacherous terrain.
CORELLIAN M-68 LANDSPEEDER
Han Solo is cagey about where he scored this overpowered M-68 landspeeder, saying little beyond that its previous owner no longer had a need for it.
I’m glad we are starting to get some context on certain characters from the film. So far, I’m most excited to meet Rio Durant and Qi’Ra out of the main cast. Out of all the vehicles listed, the Corellian Landspeeder looks the coolest to me. Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th.
