Hey kids, remember this promo art that went viral a little over a week ago? The one Disney/Lucasfilm said was fake? Well guess what? It isn’t. That’s right kids, Disney/Lucasfilm lied to us.
Probably because there was backlash from fans saying these actors, Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover, look nothing like younger versions of Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams who portrayed Han and Lando in the classic films. Also, there was an even more immediate backlash from fans over the cosmetic change to arguably Star Wars’ most iconic vehicle, the Millennium Falcon.
As you can see below, the promo art is featured on the packaging for the new LEGO set based on SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.
