    Issue 180 of Star Wars: Insider was officially released a few days ago. As always, the issue has some fantastic stories from the galaxy far, far away, but this time there is also a brief story covering the main characters from the highly anticipated stand-alone movie - Solo: A Star Wars Story. There are no spoilers or huge revelations, but still, a few of the bios offer some cool new tidbits about the characters, so check them out.





    First we start with the two leads.



    [​IMG]

    Han Solo:

    I wonder how much of Han's early life will be in the movie. My guess is that this ill-tempered crime boss is the character Moloch, which we've seen in the trailers racing against Han on the streets of Corellia. I wonder what the prize of the race would be. There has to be one.





    [​IMG]

    Qi'ra:

    Although some of the trailers and this bio imply that Qi'ra is secretive and a woman of the shadows, the footage we've seen so far suggests that Qi'ra is pretty much together with Han from the beginning of the movie (Corellia) till the end (Kessel). Still, there must be a reason why we don't hear anything about this character in the future. Will she die? Will she betray Han at the very end? We will find out next month!





    [​IMG]

    Tobias Beckett:

    This is the first time we hear that there is a 'series of risky heists'. We know about the main Conveyex heist on the planet Vandor. Perhaps one of these heists is the job on Mimban where Han and Chewie will meet Beckett for the first time. We've seen LEGO sets of both Han and Beckett dressed as Mimban troopers, so one could wonder if this was part of their heist there (more later in Val's bio), or if they were just Imperials that defect.





    [​IMG]

    Val:

    Here again we get a mention about a heist on Mimban. Perhaps Beckett and his crew (including Val) are on Mimban for the heist and they accidentally (fatefully) run into Han and the Wookiee trying to escape imprisonment?





    [​IMG]

    The issue also has a brief bio on Enfys Nest, which we already shared here. The only other villain that gets a short bio is Moloch, who is described as a sadistic creature:

    Combining the info about Han and Moloch, we can conclude that perhaps Moloch is the leader of the gang, which Han is also involved in. Star Wars Insider also issue reveals that Moloch is played by actor Harley Durst. Durst is mostly known for his stunt work in movies. For example, he was Tom Hiddleston's stunt double in Thor: Ragnarok.





    [​IMG]

    The last interesting bio bit is about L3-37:

    This bit about L3 caring about droid rights immediately reminds me of the 'Droid Arena' and the fighting droids which we discussed here.





    The Solo characters are surely an interesting ensemble. For the rest of the character bios and other Star Wars stories check out the latest issue of Star Wars Insider!

    As far as Qi’ra goes its probably going to be both a betrayal of Han Solo & death. Also it’s looking increasingly likely that my bet on Val being part of the imperium is way off & is probably just working on a heist with Becket in a Imperial disguise.

    Oh, God. When a character "deeply cares about rights", it usually means s/he going to be extremely self-rightious and annoying. To avoid any RL issues, remember Hermione and her stuggle for house elf rights. Great storyline, beloved by fans and casual readers alike, right?

    Sorry about that looks like we were both jumped on that photo plus I thought she would have made a cool Imperial officer.
    Oh well what else are we going to do with them hopefully some of my other wagers will pay off.
