The road has been anything but smooth for those associated with the forthcoming standalone film on Han Solo - Solo: A Star Wars Story - which notably saw the directing duo replaced after six months of filming, the lead actor's acting chops being questioned, and supposedly an "unworkable script" in which to film.

Despite the messy news clippings, the finished product is poised to premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival and will join other films in the franchise like 2002’s Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and 2005’s Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith as having used the notable platform at the Grand Théâtre Lumière to bring to light a new chapter.

Promising an origin story for the "famous smuggler, ace pilot and charming scoundrel," Han Solo is portrayed by Alden Ehrenreich and will star alongside Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will premiere at Cannes at a special screening on May 15, before a global rollout on May 25.
