'SOLO': MEET THE SCOUNDRELS!


One set of advance Solo: A Star Wars Story character posters would face some fan controversy during the film's 2018 pre-release marketing campaign, due to the fact that our main band of scoundrels were not shown holding their blaster weapons, a cautious creative decision initiated by Disney, apparently in response to worries about the promotion of guns in family entertainment. Thankfully, this character poster set would go on to appear unaltered within international territories.

Above and below are the original versions of those posters as seen at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2018. It would seem that only the Beckett character was showcased in this campaign without a blaster.
