The world premiere of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'
In anticipation of tonight's premiere, some Star Wars fans spent the night on Hollywood Blvd alongside a replica of the iconic Millenium Falcon. You can see exclusive red carpet interviews with cast and crew from the comfort of your own home by visiting StarWars.com or the Star Wars Youtube channel at 8:00pm ET / 5:00pm PT.
Bobby Moynihan helped create the Star Wars-themed SNL sketch "Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base," which featured Adam Driver playing Kylo Ren pretending to be a radar technician.
He says: "It's the best. We were so excited to have Adam Driver come in that week, he could not have been cooler, it was just the best. Just watching him getting into Kylo Ren. Right before one of the shots, he was like, 'Can I have a second?' and started punching himself in the stomach in the corridor and I was like, 'That is the coolest thing in the world.'"

"Are you looking forward to watching a Han Solo movie as a fan?"
"This is the only franchise where you go on Twitter and they say, 'If such and such happens, I am so out!' So now they're speculating about things they don't want to see."
Composer John Powell posted the titles of the movie's soundtrack (though we can't be sure whether they are in order): "In addition to John Williams' brilliant tune for Han, I got five new themes + many other motifs/riffs joining the Galaxy Far, Far Away in Solo: A Star Wars Story! Now...guess/discuss!"
Some fans think they can figure out the plot based on the soundtrack:

In this short interview, Emilia Clarke (Qi'ra) says:
- Han and Qi'ra grew up together
- Han is sometimes stupid opportunist without a plan
- Han and Chewie are the epitome of friends forever
- The film retains the spirit of the originals
- Ron Howard loves the movie and was a joy to work with
