Which Is the Best Poster for ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’?

It’s almost only two weeks until Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out (six days, if you count its premiere at the Cannes festival) and because it’s getting close to its world premiere I’m here to share with you with my favorite posters for the film and which one I like the most. Enjoy!

I like this poster because of its simplicity. You’ve got Han and Chewie standing in the center, the rising sun which seems to be a constant theme for some of these posters, and the Millennium Falcon flying in the sky with Tie Fighters in hot pursuit. This poster is starting to get me even more excited for this film.

I like that this poster is highlighting one of the main villains from the movie in Enfys Nest. Whether it’s a he or a she this villain has remained a mystery throughout the marketing process for this movie which makes this character even more interesting. It’s also interesting to see this character has its own poster which reveals that this will, indeed, be a major player in this film. I also like the juxtaposition of these two posters; with Solo’s poster having the rising sun in the background and Enfys’s being a setting sun. I wonder what this exactly means in the context of the movie. Thankfully I only have a little while to find out.

Who doesn’t love the Millennium Falcon? To see the iconic ship has a poster all on its own shows how much of a role it will play in this film and I am SO ready to see it in action. I can’t wait to hear zip by in IMAX! (I LOVE the Millennium Falcon. :))

There’s just something remarkably cool and classic feeling about this poster. I love seeing all of the characters, even the two villains. I love the sunrise background for the poster and the brilliant light of the sun in the corner melding with the bright green lasers of the Tie Fighters and the iconic blue of the Millennium Falcon’s motor. I love Qi’Ra’s look in this poster as this beautiful but dangerous femme fatale. Lando’s cool and easy swagger is very apparent in this poster. And even Han Solo looks awesome on this poster. All in all, it’s definitely my second favorite poster but there is one that has dethroned it and it is this.

I. Love. This. Poster. It’s so simple and yet it’s so perfect for the overall feel of this film. We see a young Han Solo with his feet up on what I’m guessing is the table in the Millennium Falcon’s main sitting area. I love the easy, casual manner in the way he’s sitting like he doesn’t have a care in the world. He has his blaster in his hand which diverts your attention from his bored expression and immediately makes you realize this is a dangerous guy who just might shoot first and ask questions later.

I love the rustic yellow and brown coloring of the poster. It gives it a different feeling while still retaining the essence of all of the posters that have come before it.

And I love the words at the top of the poster, “Never tell him the odds.” Awesome! Han Solo is not a character who thinks logically. He’s always achieving the impossible and never stops to think about the certain repercussions of his actions and that’s why he’s so great.

When he went to save Luke in the first Death Star battle he didn’t think about the odds of himself surviving that venture. He just did it and in the process saved the Rebellion and aided Luke in destroying the Death Star. When he took the Millennium Falcon through the asteroid belt surrounding Hoth to escape the Empire he didn’t want to know the odds of surviving the maniacal endeavor and guess what, he survived along with his friends?

Time and time again Han Solo has proved to not only be resourceful but one of the luckiest characters in Star Wars. He has defied the odds countless times and this film is going to help highlight that daring spirit of his to the fullest and I can’t wait to see what new, near impossible odds he’ll have to defy.

These are my favorite posters for Solo: A Star Wars Story and I have to admit, I’m actually starting to get really pumped for this movie. Tomorrow on starwars.com there will be live coverage of the Red Carpet premiere for the film and I’m definitely not going to miss it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fabulous day. May the Force be with you.
