"This is showmanship at its best and it's what "Star Wars" fans deserve, this kind of excitement". "Rogue One", released in 2016, told the story of the theft of plans for the superweapon the Death Star, which was destroyed at the end of the 1977 film that made Star Wars into a global sensation.

According to the Star Wars team, Han Solo Season is created to "pay homage" to both the original trilogy, as well as the standalone movie arriving later this month.

The premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story on Thursday night was a star-studded event. But, after a few days in limbo, Lucasfilm announced that Oscar-winning director Ron Howard would be seeing the movie through.

"I believed there was something exciting to be done here and hoped I could help realize its potential", he told ABC News. Solo A Star Wars Story will also be screened at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival on May 15.

I look forward to seeing what Disney can do with these additional Star Wars TV series and get the opportunity to step into the universe more in the future.
