    Today Disney released a variety of awesome new character posters for Solo: A Star Wars Story both in the US and the UK. Take a look below!





    The first batch of Solo character posters came via Buzzfeed.



    First and foremost let's take a look at L3-37, the self-made and self-modified droid companion of Lando Calrissian. This wise cracking female droid is voiced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

    [​IMG]



    We don't know too much about Rio Durant other than he is voiced by Jon Favreau and is seemingly part of Beckett's gang of rogues.

    [​IMG]



    Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos, the head of The Crimson Dawn, looking villainous in his all black ensemble.

    [​IMG]



    Val (Thandie Newton) is the most capable in Beckett's rag tag group of criminals. Cool, self assured, and a crack shot with a blaster rifle.

    [​IMG]



    Han's mentor Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) with the galaxy's best version of Blue Steel.

    [​IMG]



    Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) as the best dressed smuggler in the galaxy.

    [​IMG]



    The mysterious childhood friend of Han Solo, Qi'Ra (Emilia Clarke).

    [​IMG]



    The best co-pilot in the galaxy, Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo).

    [​IMG]



    Last but not least Alden Ehrenreich as the young, charismatic scoundrel Han Solo.

    [​IMG]



    Noticeably absent from these character posters is of course Enfys Nest, leader of the Cloud Riders Gang. Also no awesome character poster for Therm Scissorpunch? Missed opportunity for sure.



    Also StarWars UK revealed five more character posters on Twitter with different designs. Check them out:

    So Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Jon Favreau get credited for their CG characters (even though Favreau only voices him ) but Joonas Suotamo gets not credit for actually physically playing Chewbacca, in costume for however many hours of filming. Seems a little unfair (Doesn't the SAG have a rule about crediting actors?).

    Agreed with Joonas not getting credit being an issue. I'd be pissed.

    I'd like to see Joonas credited too, but I guess it has something to do with the fact that we technically don't see or hear him.

    Unlikely they'd have a rule in place for posters or promotional material. As long as he has a credit in the film they meet basic accrediting requirements.

    Does someone know why Joonas Suotamo hasn't been credited? Is there some contractual clause that prevents him to be credited for some reason or something like that? The fact that he isn't been credited obviously has some kind of legal basis. But I wonder what it is...

    My first assumption would be that they are trying to make Chewie a larger than life character by pretending its just Chewbacca and not a guy in a suit. Kinda like how Rebels credited Chopper as "Himself" in the episode cast lists.
