Don't miss the exclusive content in this thrilling adaptation of Solo: A Star Wars Story, with scenes from alternate versions of the script including Han Solo's time in the Imperial Navy, Qi'ra's past, the beginnings of the rebellion, and more! Though Han Solo has thrilled Star Wars fans for decades, the notorious wisecracking scoundrel was chasing adventure and dodging trouble long before he walked into the cantina at Mos Eisley spaceport. Young Han dreams of someday soaring into space at the helm of his own starship and leaving his home, the gritty industrial planet Corellia, far behind. But as long as he's trapped in a life of poverty and crime-and under the thumb of the sinister Lady Proxima and her brutal street gang-reaching the distant stars seems impossible. When Han tries to escape with his girlfriend and partner-in-crime, Qi'ra, he makes it out-but she doesn't. Desperate for a way to find his own offworld vessel and free her, Han enlists in the Imperial Navy-the last place for a rebellious loner who doesn't play well with others. When the Empire clips his wings, Han goes rogue and plunges into the shady world of smugglers, gamblers, and con artists. There he meets the charming and cunning high roller Lando Calrissian, makes an unlikely friend in a cantankerous Wookiee called Chewbacca, and first lays eyes on the Millennium Falcon. To snag his piece of the outlaw pie, Han joins a crew of pirates to pull off a risky heist. The stakes are high, the danger is great, and the odds are slim. But never tell Han Solo the odds.

"The origin story of Han Solo is a rollicking space western that translates well from the big screen to audiobook form. The immersive sound effects and iconic music create an authentic Star Wars experience, and narrator Marc Thompson continues to expertly voice the denizens of this galaxy far, far away. Thompson's young Han is wisecracking but sounds more earnest than the swaggering rogue he'll eventually become. Other voices are uncannily accurate impressions of their onscreen counterparts, particularly those of Lando Calrissian and Han's world-weary mentor, Tobias Beckett. Thompson doesn't try mimicking the movie's female leads, Qi'Ra and the free-spirited droid L3-37, but captures their essences by using higher pitches and different accents. With added viewpoints and subplots, this audiobook enriches and expands upon the original story. A.T.N. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
