“There’s no liars in this game, just players.” – Lando Calrissian
With each new commercial, or trailer I see from Solo: A Star Wars Story, my excitement grows. In the clip just released titled, “Han Meets Lando”, we get to see the first meeting between the two scoundrels as they face-off over a Sabaac game and some quick one-liners.
This scene, in my opinion, captures the spirit of the characters we have known and loved since the original movies. Both are confident – (maybe too confident), suave, and engaged in a mental game of chance. My favorite line is when Han wants to ask Lando a question and Lando responds while pronouncing Han’s name incorrectly to only be corrected by Han himself. This feels very OT Han and Lando and I love it!
Of course, who could forget the saga’s movie first meeting with Han and Lando when we see the Millennium Falcon travel to Cloud City in the hopes that Han’s “Old Friend” can help our heroes hide from the Empire? More awkward than smooth if compared to the Solo clip. Of course, we find out why Lando is acting weird shortly after.
What do you think of this scene? Excited for the film? Which is your favorite “FIRST MEETING” between Han and Lando? Solo movie or The Empire Strikes Back? Let us know in the comments.
Solo: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters May 25th.
