Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Solo: A Star Wars Story’s Alden Ehrenreich was the guest. Before he came out they showed a really cool clip of Ehrenreich as Han Solo bluffing his way through the encounter with Enfys Nest and the Cloud Riders. Even though the TV spots have debunked the fan theory that Qi’ra is Enfys Nest, this scene really lays it to rest, I think. Unless she’s using doubles or can throw her voice or something. Enfys seems really badass and no nonsense.
The moment in the clip is excellent and worth checking out. If you’re reading this at work and can’t watch the clip the exchange goes like this:
Enfys: You must have known you’d see me again.
Tobias: Was countin’ on it. Just didn’t plan on it being so soon. Of course now you have a problem.
Han: A big problem. You happen to notice that freighter down there? You know what’s on it? About thirty hired guns. All I gotta do is give em the signal and you’re surrounded.
(The freighter/Falcon then blasts off.)
Han (to Tobias): Sorry, do your thing.
Check out the clip and Alden’s interview with Kimmel:
I noticed you kind of get a feel for the score in this clip too. I like it. It has a slight Star Wars vibe but when compared to the clip of Chewie becoming Han’s co-pilot where we hear Chewie’s theme, it is a nice sample of the feeling the score will have.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits on May 25th. You can get your tickets now if you haven’t yet.
