Jason and Corey are at the El Capitan Theater today in Hollywood with Denny’s Diner grubbing down and getting the first look at Denny’s upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story promotion. More details to come, but for now a sweet little look at Han and Lando playing cards!
To kick off the promotional campaign, Denny’s has released its own “Solo: A Star Wars Story”-inspired national TV spot, “Hand of Sabacc.” Set inside the lodge from “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” the spot features two young adversaries, who imagine that they are squared off in a high-stakes card game as characters from the Star Wars universe, including Chewbacca, watch from around the booth. Denny’s worked closely with Lucasfilm and Skywalker Sound and enlisted the help of acclaimed production designer Neil Lamont and Oscar®-winning creature and Special Makeup Effects Supervisor Neal Scanlan–both of whom worked on Star Wars films “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”–to create an authentic Star Wars environment for the spot.
