A stand-alone installment of the series, “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” has a young Han Solo as the focus of the film. Because the Star Wars franchise is known for releasing their films wildly out of order, the film taking place prior to the 1977 original isn’t unusual. Scheduled for release on May 25, fans can expect something out of this world.
