The movie centers on a young Han Solo, and through a series of daring escapades, shows how he meets his future co-pilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).

Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy previously stated that Favreau will bring "the ideal mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe".

While many other characters have made cameos in Star Wars films that tells stories before the original trilogy, the franchise has stayed away from showing Solo as a younger man.

However, early reception to the movie has been highly positive, with Solo expected to match Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's opening numbers at the box office.

Disney definitely pulled out all the stops for Thursday's premiere - including the Millennium Falcon. Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from Solo: A Star Wars Story midway through production, and Walt Disney Co asked Ron Howard to come in to oversee extensive reshoots. Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Thandie Newton as Val and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Lando's droid companion, L3-37, also got appreciations from the critics. Somebody's out to get you-that's just nature.
